COMEBACK man Ty Proctor will be a new face in King’s Lynn’s reshaped 2018 Premiership side.

Aussie ace Proctor made a successful return to British racing with Workington last season and caught the eye of Stars bosses.

Now he will team up with the returning Lewis Rose in an exciting Stars side with two riders still to be named.

With Robert Lambert, Thomas Jorgensen and Lewis Kerr already on board, Stars co-promoter and team manager Dale Allitt feels the additions of Rose and Proctor gives his side extra strength in depth.

"I think they're two more solid signings who are going to guarantee us effort and entertainment," Allitt said.

"Firstly it's great to have Lewis back for yet another year.

"He's great away from the gate and last season he really did have some terrific performances for the Stars before a shoulder injury cut his year short.

"He's fully fit again now though, he's raring to go and I'm sure he'll be keen to continue where he left off with us when he was in some real fine form.

"I think 2018 is going to be a big year for Lewis; hopefully he can steer clear of injuries and if luck is on his side on that front, then I believe we'll see some significant steps in the right direction in terms of further progression once again.

"Ty is a new face at The Adrian Flux Arena yet ironically he's someone we've tried to sign on a number of occasions before.

"For one reason or another it hasn't ever happened until now and we're excited to see what he can bring to the team.

"He's done a few meetings at our place, mainly back in our Premier League days, and it's somewhere he's always rode really well at.

"Ty has shown previously with Wolverhampton what he is capable of, but he comes to us with even more experience under his belt and one thing we know we'll get from him is 100 per cent effort which is all any of us can ask for.

"His previous top flight experience and knowledge of all the other tracks will come into play I'm sure, and he'll be a solid member of the team.

"We're really happy with how the team is shaping up and that just leaves two more places to fill.”

THE final two team members will be unveiled next week with a Fans Forum taking place at the stadium on Thursday January 25.
