"Cory has always been as keen as mustard, that's one of the reasons I wanted him in the team this year. I know this is going to be his year, he wants Elite League, and the only route is to have a good season here at Somerset."He gets more professional all the time, but retains that laid back attitude which separates him from some other riders. It's a great quality being able to maintain composure and stay level headed when the chips are all stacked against you, and that's what makes champions. He is very focused this year and I have high hopes for his season."The Somerset Riders' Equipment Fund (SREF) held a pre-season skittles night at the Oak Tree Arena, with general manager David Croucher, riders and supporters enjoying a fun night.The match itself saw the two top scorers from each team go head to head to decide the winner, with Jason Vaudin taking the winner's trophy, and with no tactical allowed Rebel Simon Walker had to be content with the runners-up prize. This event was well supported and helped SREF to raise further funds towards assisting the Somerset riders during the coming season.
