Richard scoops Rider of the Year award

Richard Lawson was a deserved winner of the Hammers Rider of the Year trophy last night at the clubs Dinner Dance, taking the award for the second year running.

Richard was joined by 2014 team mates Davey Watt, Lewis Bridger, Adam Ellis and Ben Morley in an enjoyable night excellently compared by track presenter Andy Young.

All present, with the exception of the retiring Bridger, expressed their wish to remain with the club in 2015 and while Young and promoter Jon Cook combined for an entertaining rider interview session, the stage was stolen by a hilariously funny Adam Ellis, who could consider a second career in comedy.

Jon & Stuart Douglas would like to pass on their thanks to the Lakeside supporters Social committee for taking over the event and providing fans, riders and staff with a great night.
