Hammers sign veteran racer

Former Great Britain World Cup start is returning to the Lakeside Hammers line-up.

The 42-year-old replaces David Mason in the team, after impressing in the early season challenge against Kent Kings, when he scored 11+1.

Hurry, who has had several seasons on the sidelines injured, will make his National League bow in the trip to Stoke on Saturday before Sunday’s home meeting with Cradley Heath.

The fans favourite will form a powerful triple spearhead with Ben Morley and Zach Wajtknecht in the Vortex Hammers side.

Hurry said: “It’s been a tough start to the season for David and they just wanted even more strength at the top end of the team.

“I felt good in the challenge meeting I did so I’m sure it won’t take me too long at all to get back into the groove.

“I need to get my equipment back up to scratch and once I’ve done that I’m confident I can score some points for the team because I’ll be going out there and enjoying myself but I’m also looking forward to helping a few of the lads progress on and off the track as well.”

The Hammers also offer sincere thanks to David for his efforts this season and wish him well for the future.
