James Sarjeant joins the team in a second string berth from August onwards. He is 24 years old from Sheffield and that is where he still lives.
With 24 previous appearances at Armadale he knows the track well, and has a best score at the track of 12+2. At the end of last season he guested for Monarchs in the KO Cup semi-final and scored 7 points.
James says “It’s a good little track Edinburgh, I enjoy racing on it. It will be good to get some good laps in on it week after week, I’m looking forward to it.
“I feel like it’s more my kind of track – Edinburgh, Newcastle, Ipswich, the trickier tracks I seem to do well on. It’s good to have one of these tracks as a home track now. I want a few more big scores!”
James knows most of the team, adding “I get on well with Ricky, Sam and obviously Cameron. I haven’t raced with Josh Pickering before. If Willie goes down to reserve it will help him pick up a few more points.”
The new man admits he has had a slightly inconsistent season but feels he can definitely put that right. “There’s been a lot going on lately and to be honest I’ve not been racing that much. Up till this last couple of weeks I’ve been very quiet so it will be good to get back into some regular racing.”
