HOT prospect James Sarjeant will be part of the Bees' new National League side.

The 20-year-old, from Sheffield, has been on the books at Brandon from the tender age of 16 but has plied his speedway education in the National League at Rye House.

He also featured in several Premier League guest bookings where he gave a good account of himself.

Co-team boss Laurence Rogers said: "I have known Sarj since his early days on a speedway bike in the under-15s and he has always come across as a gritty little rider with great potential.

"He has waited patiently for the chance to ride for his parent club and in all honesty it did not take too long to agree a deal with him as he really wants to race for Coventry.

"I think 2013 will be a big breakthrough year for him and I am glad it will be with us at Coventry."

Details of the nickname and logo for the new National League team – who will race home meetings at Brandon – are being finalised and will be revealed soon.

All riders need sponsorship backing throughout the season and anyone interested in backing Sarjeant to fund a new Kevlar racing suit for the young Brit cant contact laurencerogers@blueyonder.co.uk or call 07510768392.
