King's Lynn Stars make Lewis Kerr the first name on the team sheet for 2020
West Norfolk boy Lewis Kerr is the first name on King’s Lynn’s team sheet for next season.
Kerr, 29, has renewed confidence in his ability following a solid campaign for the Poultec Stars last term.
The speedster, who lives in Dersingham, proved to be a real fans’ favourite once again.
The King’s Lynn-born racer was also given the extra responsibility of being club captain in the second half of 2019 following an injury to Stars’ no.1 Robert Lambert.
This was a role which really seemed to bring the best out of Kerr as he banged in the points at reserve.
And with that great form it comes as no surprise that the Lynn promotion were keen to secure his services for the new season.
Kerr said: “It is a big relief to be back with Lynn again in 2020 and I am made up, to be fair! I really enjoyed last season with the Stars and it works perfect for me riding at my home town club.
“Like I say, I am really made up to be back with the club again.
“Riding in the Championship with Eastbourne and then in the Premiership with Lynn worked well for me last term and I am hoping for more of the same going into next year.
“I have had a good season with both my clubs and it was good being on two different types of track because I got on well. I can only hope for more of the same when the new season comes around.
“In the second half of last season I really feel that I turned a corner so to speak at King’s Lynn, and I really got going down at reserve.
“The only disappointment was the fact that our away form wasn’t great and for me that is something I need to work on going forward, but overall I am really happy.
“Although I had a good season, I am always looking to improve so, I just want to have a good winter and come back even stronger in the spring.”
Kerr, who in 2010 joined the Young Stars National League side and in 2013 made his Lynn senior team debut, had said last month: “I would love to be back at King’s Lynn.
“It’s my home town club. I love the club.”
Kerr made those previous comments on his debut for Great Britain on home shale, lining-up alongside Stars team-mate Craig Cook as GB defeated Denmark at the Adrian Flux Arena.
