MILDENHALL have moved to sign Luke Muff as a replacement for Arran Butcher who was recently injured in a grasstrack meeting.
Muff impressed in a guest appearance for Newcastle last weekend and will now make his debut for the Fen Tigers when they open their NDL campaign at Leicester on Wednesday.
Manager Malcolm Vasey said: “In our conversations Luke has shown he is hungry for success and very keen to succeed in the sport.
“He made a round trip of some 370 miles to a private practice at the club today (Saturday) and showed up very well and quickly fitted in with the other lads.
“We did our homework on him and spoke to two respected riders who had seen him in action and liked what they saw. He is a likeable and very enthusiastic rider who I am sure supporters will take to, and we are pleased to welcome him to the club.”
