Gladiators bring in Lawson

Plymouth Atkins Financial Management Gladiators have made a change to their line up by bringing in exciting British star, Richard Lawson.

Lawson, who will replace Jason Edwards, became available after his previous club, Eastbourne Eagles, announced that they were withdrawing from Championship racing earlier this week and Gladiators’ promoter, Mark Phillips quickly swooped to bring Lawson into the team.

Phillips said ‘I’m delighted that Richard is joining us for the remainder of the season. He is an exciting rider and will bring even more experience to the team. He has already guested for us on a few occasions so knows our set up well.

We have now been able to construct the team around actual averages instead of assessed ones’.

Lawson will be included in the team for the visit to Leicester tomorrow evening (Saturday 28th) and the Gladiators then face Newcastle at the Coliseum on Tuesday (7pm) in what should be another entertaining fixture with former Plymouth favourites, Ben Barker and Adam Roynon in the visitor’s line up.
