New King’s Lynn Stars arrival Richie Worrall says team manager Alex Brady is like “a breath of fresh air” to speedway.

Worrall had praise for Brady, who stepped in midway through last season in the Premiership.

The twin, whose brother Steve has also ridden for the Adrian Flux Arena side before, compared the young Stars manager to his 2021 boss Mark Lemon, the Australian in charge of the Belle Vue Aces.

St Helens-born Worrall said of Brady, who took the reins last season when 30 years old: “Speaking with him, he’s a breath of fresh air into the sport. He’s a good young mind.

“I am excited to work for him. After working with Lemmo this year, I think Lemmo is a good team manager as well but he’s also a micro manager.

“With the bike side, that’s my side. He’s been a decent rider before but that were a while ago.

“He’ll come over to Peterborough, for example, and say 'What have you changed?'

“'I’ve done this’. ‘Well, is that going to work?’.

“It plants seeds in your head. You know your bike, you know what you just did and you know what to do to make it go better.

“You end up going out on a moped!

“So I’m not going to get that with Alex, because he’s not a rider.

“He’s going to manage the team and that’s it. That’s what I want, really.”

Also, Worrall is returning to Championship side Leicester in 2022 and he said of Lions team manager and promoter Stewart Dickson at the recent Stars 2022 team announcement: “I like Stewart.

"He does the track how I like it, like the Stars, nice and grippy, a bit of dirt on the outside for me.

“I think he sees something in me. It makes the difference between a good night and a bad night, really.

“It’s a massive confidence sport. If you’re confident, you’ll take a risk, you’ll do things on the bike you wouldn’t do if you wasn’t.

“It does have a big effect on me. He knows what to do with me so I thought I’ll have another year with him. I do enjoy riding with him.

“He is definitely one of the best team managers I’ve worked with.”
