Lynn Stars swoop for Garrity ahead of big week of home meetings
Crowd-pleaser Jason Garrity is on his way to the King’s Lynn Stars in time for three massive home meetings next week.
Mancunian ace Garrity has just ended a 28-day spell with his local club Belle Vue as injury cover for Stevie Worrall.
Now he heads to the Adrian Flux Arena in time for a triple bill of Premiership action in the space of seven days - starting on Monday July 23 against Poole.
He replaces broken leg victim Lewis Kerr and club bosses are delighted to get their man for the Tru Plant Stars.
Boss Dale Allitt said: “I drew up a list of four or five riders I was interested in and we held back on Jason because he was in Belle Vue’s side.
“But he’s now available again and once we had confirmation of that we decided to make our move. I’m delighted to have him on board.
“He’s recovered from his own injury problem and will be at Cardiff as track reserve for the British Grand Prix on Friday and will also be riding at Scunthorpe on Sunday before making his debut for us.
“We have a massive spell of meetings coming up and we must win all our home meetings, it’s as simple as that.”
Allitt admits it’s been a tough job patching up his injured side this season - but the play-offs remain their top target.
“We can do it,” he said. “The signing of Jason excites me because he will give it his all, he will really become a firm favourite with the King’s Lynn crowd.
“It’s so disappointing to lose Lewi Kerr like we did but he wants us to do well and I’m sure he’ll be the first to offer any advice to Jason.
“I also talked to our skipper Robert Lambert about Jason and he gave me total support in making the move.
“Now we need all our fans to get right behind us next Monday and beyond. We have a vital phase of the season to come and it’s all about a group effort.”
