Isle of Wight speedway team – the Wight Warriors – have unveiled a new manager.
Jackie Vatcher, who has been involved in the background within the sport of speedway for a number of years, will be the Warriors’ Team Manager for the 2017 season.
“This has happened so quickly and hasn’t had chance to sink in yet, but it is an opportunity I felt I could not turn down. After witnessing what a great job the Isle of Wight promotion did in 2016 I want to help them continue their progression in 2017.
“I am now looking forward to meeting with the promoters and continue to discuss which riders we would like to talk to line up for the Warriors in 2017.”
Warriors Co-promoter Barry Bishop said:
“Martin Widman and I are absolutely thrilled to announce that Jackie is joining the team. Jackie’s had lots of experience in speedway at every level and will be a fantastic asset to the Warriors.
“With Jackie confirmed on board we now look forward to considering our options for next year whilst awaiting the outcome of the National League’s AGM.”
