Workington announced six of their side for the 2014 season on Friday with a few new names heading to Derwent Park.

The Comets have retained the services of Rene Bach, Kyle Howarth and Ashley Morris but coming into the club is Elite and Premier League winner from last year Josh Grajczonek, Mason Campton one year on from his visa problems and World Cup star Ricky Wells.

Ricky comes into the Comets side after an unhappy season at Sheffield last year. Although things behind the scenes were far from ideal, on the track he was one of the top performers in the Premier League.

Wells, who has returned home to the USA for the winter, expressed his delight at joining what looks to be a very good Workington team, Ricky said: “Feels great to join Workington after two disappointing seasons with Sheffield, I think this will be a fresh start for me.

“I think we could definitely challenge for the Premier League title this season, we have a solid side. I think the best thing about the whole deal is everyone gets along, it’s going to be a good atmosphere.

“I like the track at Workington but I’m heading into my fourth season in the Premier League and I am pretty confident I can score points anywhere we go. I like Workington because it is big and fast. I have a good balance with that and a small track in the Elite League.

“I had a few offers from teams that would have potentially gone to. Workington got in touch the day after the AGM, I said if they were serious to guarantee me a team spot and we could work something out.

“I feel like I can build on my average from last season. I had a good, solid year throughout with my scores at Sheffield.  We have a good looking side and I am looking forward to it as much as the rest of the team and management.”
