Young Stars swoop for Jake Knight

Have your say

The Lynn Young Stars have completed their side for the 2013 National League with the signing of Jake Knight.

West-Norfolk based Knight is the final piece in the jigsaw for team manager Dale Allitt and he joins the already confirmed Darren Mallett, Lewis Kerr, Tom Young, Shane Waldron, Shane Hazelden, and Lewis Rose.

Towards the end of last season, Knight produced some impressive performances at the Norfolk Arena and he will return this year to the main body of the team.

Manager Dale Allitt is delighted to have agreed a deal to bring back the 20-year-old, and he believes the side is the best he has compiled in his time with the club.

Allitt said: “On the 5.93 average he comes back on, I think Jake is the best rider in the league.

“He showed at the end of last year that he can improve and we are expecting that this year.

“I’m really pleased and I think it will be an exceptional year for him. When you build a team you try to include riders that will improve and Jake fits right in.”

Allitt added: “I believe that this team is the best we have had since we have been running National League at Lynn.

“When I look at the other teams in the league, I think we are as good as anyone this year.”
