THE Dickies Somerset Rebels have secured the services of Steve Boxall to fill the team place left vacant following last month's tragic death of Emil Kramer and will be joining the Rebels on a 7.45 starting average.

Originally without a team berth for the coming season, Boxall put himself in the shop window with a stunning performance that saw him emerge victorious in the New Year Classic meeting at Newport at the start of the month, a victory that was made all the more impressive by virtue of the fact he was riding borrowed machinery.

"Steve is a rider with proven ability, but has not had the best of luck over the past couple of years what with injury and the mechanical problems that seemed to plague him last year," said a spokesperson for the Rebels.

"He will be teaming up with riders that he knows well in Tommy Allen and Ritchie Hawkins, so he should feel right at home, and I know that the Somerset fans will be backing Steve, as they do all the riders that don the Rebel race-jacket, all the way.
