“I’m extremely happy and excited to take on this new role. The past year I’ve thoroughly enjoyed helping the Warriors in the Track Shop, which I shall still be doing, but I really want to get more involved with events, sponsorship and learning how to promote the club.

“We have lots happening already in 2017, with events, speedway schools, Young Lions Training Camp and I cannot wait for this season to start”.

Commercial Director Barry Bishop added:

“Steph’s enthusiasm for the Warriors is unrelenting and she already has a great pedigree in helping to run a speedway club off the track and building a community of interest.

“Steph during the last season was heavily involved with the Track Shop, stamping her own design on the layout, products and promotion. She has now started to get more involved with other things and has worked alongside her father Colin on the Warrior 100 club to make this a resounding success.

“Taking this experience, along with her interpersonal skills, we feel now is just the right time for Steph to get more involved commercially with the club and help us increase sponsorship further and engage with one of our target fan groups; the under 25s.

“It gives me great pleasure to Welcome Steph to the Warriors Commercial Team”.
