Connor Mountain has been unveiled as the Mildenhall Fen Tigers fourth signing for next year.

Promoters at the club decided to snap up the 16 year old rider after he impressed during a number a guest outings for the side this year.

The King’s Lynn born rider will arrive at the club with a 3.00 point average and will take up one of the two reserve slots in the team.

His arrival comes after the club confirmed signatures of Dan Halsey, Joe Jacobs and Josh Bates earlier in the week.

“Connor is a highly promising youngster and an impressive and professional young man,” said Kevin Jolly, co-promoter.

“We were very impressed by his performances on and off the track when he guested for us on a number of occasions last season.

“We quickly marked him down as one for the future and as a rider we wanted in our side for 2014.

“I am very pleased we have snapped him up and although he will need time to settle into regular league racing I have no doubt he will be a fast learner and improver over the season.”
