SBS EPOS MD Dave Stevens said:
“Having greatly enjoyed our first year of sponsoring the Warriors in 2016 we were looking to increase our ties with the club for 2017 and what better way to do that than to sponsor the team captain.
“I attended many meetings on the Island last year and was always impressed with James’s team leadership qualities and the way he always made time for and interacted with the crowd. There is always a feel-good factor surrounding Island Speedway and I can think of no better rider to lead the side than James and so it will be a pleasure to sponsor and assist him in his leadership of the Warriors”.
James Cockle added:
“I am absolutely delighted that SBS EPOS and I have agreed a way forward together than will benefit us. SBS EPOS is a great friend and sponsors of the club so I am massively proud that they have chosen to work with me.
“My season’s preparation is going well and I cannot wait for the new season to start as I am really confident with the team we have the Warriors will be up there this season. Once again I would like to thank Dave Stevens for his support and the season’s start cannot come soon enough.”
