Andrew Tully and Matthew Wethers were confirmed as the next two signings for the Monarchs' 2010 team at tonight's successful Video Night.

No great surprise perhaps but the two boys got a great reception from the crowd who saw both feature in so many good heats in the season just past.

It was also stated that agreement was close for the return of Max Dilger at reserve on a 3-point average.

That leaves 7.13 for the final rider in the team. Alex Harkess said ?Our first option would be to offer that place to William Lawson.

?However at the moment William feels he would like to try the Elite League full time next season. So that is where it stands for the time being.?

Michal Rajkowski is also a possible candidate for that final position but it was explained that for next season, Polish riders will have to take out an ACU license in order to be allowed to ride in the Premier League.

It was mentioned that while Derek Sneddon is again loaned to Newcastle, and Aaron Summers has been permitted to talk to other clubs, both will be on loan and remain part of the club's future plans.
