King completes the SWTR Centurions

The newly formed Plymouth “Southwest Tyre Recycling” Centurions are pleased to announce their seventh and final signing for the coming 2022 National Development League season. 

Suffolk based Connor King will be making the move to Devon after previously having spells with the Isle of Wight and Eastbourne during the 2019 and 2021 seasons. 

Plymouth owner Mark Phillips said “I am thrilled to have completed the line-up for the Centurions so early into the new year. Connor comes in on a 3.67 average but, while that might seem a little low, I believe he is a rider far better than that average suggests”. 

23-year-old king, who has shown great consistency and promise around the Coliseum circuit in past visits, will join Adam Extance in the middle order of the team and on paper making the National League newcomers a strong looking outfit, especially at home. 

Centurions team manager Mattie Bates added “I’m extremely happy Connor has agreed to come ride for Plymouth this coming season. 

I’ve always been impressed with his progression and his form around the Coliseum in the past. He’s still young and still learning his trade so to speak, I think Plymouth is the perfect place for him to have a breakthrough season and I’m excited to be working with him.”

King completes the Centurions alongside the six previously announced team members Dan Gilkes, Henry Atkins, Richard Andrews, Ben Trigger, Adam Extance and Eli Meadows.
