With six riders already secured for their 2020 SGB Championship campaign, the Somerset Rebels have confirmed that they are targeting the exciting young Australian prospect Zach Cook to complete their septet.

Club owner and promoter Debbie Hancock announced, "the move to bring Zach to the club is all now down to the successful issuance of his visa, the applications for which are now in the system. We were so impressed with him when he rode in our challenge fixture against Plymouth last season and the times when he visited the Oaktree for some practice. He is a good lad and I believe the Somerset fans will take to him very quickly. Gazza speaks very highly of him too and I must say that once again Gazza has done a great job in assembling a very exciting side that is well capable of being a title winning one too."

Cook will come into the side on an assessed 4.00 average which means he will occupy a reserve berth along with two-pointer Nathan Stoneman. The Rebels have squeezed as many point out of the 41 point limit, coming in with a start-of-season team total of 40.96.

The 2020 Rebels are: Bradley Wilson-Dean 8.75, Rory Schlein 8.69, Ben Barker 7.06, Josh Bates 6.19, Anders Rowe 4.27, Zack Cook 4.00, Nathan Stoneman 2.00

Prospective season ticket purchasers are reminded that the club are holding an Open Afternoon on Wednesday 11th December (1pm to 6pm) where they can be issued with their season ticket and enjoy a mince pie and cup of coffee if they drop in at the Oaktree Arena.
