Nick Morris at Monmore for second season
Nick Morris is ready to show Wolverhampton fans the real him – after agreeing a new deal at Monmore Green.
Aussie ace Morris suffered an injury ravaged season but club bosses are backing him to step up a level with full fitness at the start of next term.
Parrys International Wolves owner Chris Van Straaten said: “At the end of the season Nick said he wanted to remain loyal to us and show the Wolverhampton public what he can really do.
“He missed the start of last season with a broken wrist which proved worse than initially feared and that put him behind everyone else when he did come back.
“He’s a better rider than the one we saw and I’m pleased he wants to make up for lost time next season.”
Morris himself is pleased to be handed a second chance by the club.
“This is a second chance for me at Wolverhampton,” he said.
“I don’t think I covered myself in glory there last season. Things didn’t get off to the perfect start with the hand injury and I was always playing catch up from the off.
“The promotion stuck by me though and things got a lot better towards the end of the season but I know my form can and should be better.
“We are all starting off on the same level next season and hopefully I can hit the ground running.
“It’s a great club to ride for and I’m happy to be back. We almost got over the line last season but fair play to Swindon in that play-off semi-final they adapted to track conditions better than we did after the rain shower. It still hurts if I’m honest but I have a second chance to put things right next season.”
Morris joins Broc Nicol, Ryan Douglas and Rory Schlein in the 2020 Wolves side with the club expected to hold talks with American ace Luke Becker in the near future.
The club are holding a season ticket open day at Monmore's Speedway Office tomorrow (Saturday) between 9.30 and 2.30.
