THE SOMERSET Rebels brought the curtain down on the most successful season in the club’s history when they staged their Presentation Night at the Oaktree on Saturday (November 2).
The two main awards, the Rider of the Year and the Riders’ Rider of the Year, a new award for 2013, were both won by club captain Jason Doyle, it being the second year in succession that Doyle has received the fans’ vote as their Rider of the Year.
Another rider who was receiving an award for the second year in a row was Alex Davies, who collected the Most Improved Rider of the Year trophy, while Nick Morris and Josh Grajczonek both collected a brace of awards - Morris receiving the Fred Fountain Memorial Trophy, and the Somerset Riders’ Equipment Fund’s (SREF) award as their Rider of the Year, Grajczonek being presented with the Merv Marsh Memorial Shield as the Track Staffs’ choice as their Rider of the Year as well as being voted as the fans’ Most Entertaining Rider of the Year.
Club promoter Debbie Hancock said: “It has been a tremendous year for the club, and one that will live long in the memory of everyone associated with the Rebels. We’ve been blessed with a great bunch of lads riding for us this season and they fully deserve all the accolades that have come their way.”
"However, this being speedway, we have little time to rest on our laurels and we will soon begin the task of planning towards the 2014 campaign."
