The club's 20th Anniversary season will see a new award category with the introduction of the 'Social Media Rider of The Year' honour.

Sponsored by John and Nicola Doble of Stephen & Co Block Management this new trophy will be presented to the rider that generates the most number of votes through the club's Facebook account, as Dave Thompson explains:

"We are delighted to introduce this new award, and I do stress that this is a separate vote to the traditional Rider of the Year which will also be held in the normal manner. But the Social Media winner will be the rider that receives the highest number of nominations through the Somerset Speedway Facebook page . It is open to ONE nomination per person and votes will only be accepted if cast via a direct private message which is done by clicking the message tab under the cover picture."

Nominations will open for three weeks with the vote opening on August Bank Holiday (August 26th) and the winner will be announced at the club's Presentation Evening which this season will be held on Saturday 2nd November in the Oak Tree Arena clubhouse.

In addition to this category the club will be holding independent voting for Rider of The Year and Most Entertaining Rider of the Year this coming Wednesday (28th) when the Rebels host the visit of the Edinburgh Monarchs (7.30pm).
