Sheldon Davies completes Scunthorpe/Sheffield NDL Side

Sheldon Davies completes Scunthorpe/Sheffield NDL Side

Sheldon Davies will make a return to the sport this season after completing the combined Scunthorpe/Sheffield side in the WSRA National Development League.

Davies previously rode for Birmingham, Cradley and Edinburgh between 2018 and 2021, and the 23-year-old completes a youthful Stags/Prowlers septet.

Scunthorpe promoter Rob Godfrey said: “We always said that the last spot was open to a rider who impressed at the Eddie Wright Raceway and that’s exactly how Sheldon claimed his team place.

“We’ve had a bit of a nightmare with the weather this winter which has washed out our Amateur meetings, but Simon Lambert invited Sheldon over to the EWR. I liked what I saw, so did Simon, and we’ve given him the opportunity.

“Sheldon lives in Hull, so he’s another local connection for the team. He’s got good equipment and good backing, plus he’s not a complete rookie when it comes to National League racing.

“I believe our side is going to be very attractive to watch, with some cracking British prospects.”

SCUNTHORPE/SHEFFIELD 2024 (Subject to approval): Nathan Ablitt 8.49, Luke Harrison 6.86, Ace Pijper 5.81, Mickie Simpson 4.23, Sheldon Davies 3.00, Stene Pijper 3.00, Kean Dicken 3.00.
