The Rebels have moved to fill the gap left by Paul Fry's injury by announcing the signing of Swede, Emil Kramer. After looking at all possible options, the Somerset Promotion felt it would be best to sign a replacement rather than to operate the rider replacement facility during Fry's absence, as Rebel co-promoter Joe Lawson, explained: "As with Pavel and Jamie we felt it is in the best interests of the club to sign another rider, this time replacing the unfortunate Paul Fry. In Emil we feel we have found a rider that, given his previous excellent form around the Oak Tree Arena, could make us even stronger. "Although we have been unlucky to have lost our entire middle order of riders this season, by the same token, we have been lucky to have discovered three riders on the sidelines who have had just the right average to adequately fill our vacant team spots."Stephan and Glen grasped their opportunities with both hands and I am sure that Emil will do just the same thing. I am really looking forward to Emil's first appearance as a Rebel in Sunday's second leg of our Knockout Cup clash with Mildenhall."As the Rebels have no official home meeting this evening, they are to give their junior riders the chance to gain further experience in a full seven rider, 15-heat challenge against the Newport Mavericks Conference League team. Somerset fans will no doubt be looking forward to seeing Jordan Frampton in action again following his excellent performance last week's West Country Challenge against Exeter, albeit in Exeter colours. Fans' interest will also be whetted as the Junior Rebels will be including Cory Gathercole in their line-up, Gathercole being the cousin of nine-times Australian champion and current Swindon star, Leigh Adams.
