The 12-strong field for the second semi-final of the British U21 championships to be held at the Oaktree Arena on Good Friday has been confirmed, and Rebels hopes will be focussed on Henry Atkins.

The competition has ten seeded riders going straight to the final and they will be joined by top three from each semi-final - the first semi being held at Isle of Wight three days earlier, where Rebels' other young reserve, Anders Rowe will compete.
Young Lions' boss Neil Vatcher explained the rationale in reverting to the format last used in 2010 "Unfortunately there was a number of fixture clashes with the Semi Final at Somerset, so therefore we had to look at a format where it made both Semi Finals a fair line up.
"Having now done the draw, I really think they look like really exciting meetings, and it would be impossible to pick the 6 riders who will claim their place in the British Under 21 Final, just 8 days after the second Semi."

Somerset field: Jack Parkinson Blackburn (Unattached); Henry Atkins (Somerset); Jason Edwards (Mildenhall);
Joe Lawlor (Unattached); Luke Harris (Cradley); Jamie Halder (Leicester Cubs); Charlie Brooks (Mildenhall); Kelsey Dugard (Leicester Cubs); Sam Bebee (Mildenhall); Macauley Leek (Mildenhall); Lewis Whitmore (Cradley); Harry McGurk (Cradley).

Isle of Wight Line up:
Ryan Kinsley (Scunthorpe); Anders Rowe (Somerset and Kent); Jordan Jenkins (Kent); Luke Ruddick (Edinburgh and Leicester Cubs); Ben Woodhull (Belle Vue Colts); Alex Spooner (Kent); Jordan Palin (Belle Vue Colts); Joe Alcock (Stoke); Jamie Bursill (Plymouth); Nathan Ablitt (Kent); Connor King (Isle of Wight); Chad Wirtzfeld (Isle of Wight)

Seeded riders: Robert Lambert, Dan Bewley, Zach Wajknecht, Nathan Greaves, Jack Smith, Jack Thomas, Drew Kemp, Leon Flint, Tom Brennan and Kyle Bickley.
