EASTBOURNE have promoted youngster Nathan Ablitt to their Championship side with Jason Edwards standing down.
Ablitt is set to make his official Eagles debut in Saturday’s home match against Plymouth, whilst Edwards is to focus on his National Development League racing for the immediate future.
Manager Trevor Geer said: “We can see that Jason is giving 100 per cent as always but he really needs to rebuild shattered confidence.
“We have discussed with Jason that the best way to do this is to have a break and focus on the NDL for a few months.
“Nathan on the other hand has confidence from some NDL action and will come in to replace Jason.
“We have seen him riding since he was a little kid at Arlington and I believe he has one hell of a future. We put him in at Scunthorpe and he wasn’t afraid of who he was racing and was on the pace.”
