GLASGOW TIGERS management have followed-up the signing of Travis McGowan by securing two of last season's stars - Lee Dicken and Mitchell Davey - ahead of the new season starting in March.
Australian starlet Davey, who will turn 20 when the season starts, is currently performing very impressively in his homeland and himself sees 2010, his third season in British speedway, as make or break.
In many respects he has been overshadowed by the performances of his close friend and Tigers' team mate Josh Grajczonek, however their respective performances in Australia this winter are suggesting that Davey could be set for his best British season yet, something which both the club and rider would hugely benefit from.
Humberside-based Dicken has become a fans favourite for his never-say-die performances and sheer grit when competing for Glasgow.
Despite his mammoth weekly round trip, Dicken was quick to accept terms with Glasgow for what will be his fifth term with the club. At 31 Dicken will be the second eldest, and most experienced, of the Tigers line-up, this in itself should prove him a more than useful acquisition when it comes to helping and advising the younger team members.
With six riders now in place, the Tigers have around 3.3 points left for the final rider position.
There are a few candidates who could fill this void however the club will look to make their decision based upon a balance of potential to improve, ability to score some points to begin with, experience and cost.
Tigers young Australian starlet Nick Morris continues to impress in 350cc competition Down Under and will look to increase his experience on the 500cc machines before returning to Scotland in March.
Morris cannot race for Glasgow until he turns 16 in June but has meantime signed a deal to ride for Buxton in the National League with a view to building vital experience as part of his grounding before being considered for a team place by his parent club.
