WITCHES ARE COMPLETE

IPSWICH have completed their 2022 line-up with the signings of Erik Riss and Troy Batchelor.

Riss makes the move to Foxhall from local rivals King’s Lynn whilst Batchelor, who rode for Sheffield this year, is back for a second spell with the Witches after spending the second half of the season with the Suffolk side back in 2009.

Batchelor said: “Chris (Louis) sent me a message thinking I was already fixed up which I was pretty close to going somewhere else, but it all worked out in the end.

“Being close to home is nice and to be paired up with Jason (Doyle) again will be nice and I pretty much know everyone in the team. It’ll be a good team and we will be able to achieve something together.”

Riss added: “I’ve spent two-and-a-half years (at King’s Lynn) and last year didn’t really go to plan. I had big aspirations and expectations of myself, and it didn’t go to plan for several reasons.

“At the end of the season both sides agreed it would be good for me to go elsewhere and have a new challenge. I had other offers, but Ipswich was my first choice as I really like the track and have always scored well there.”
