THREE more riders have signed up to compete at Neil Middleditch's testimonial later this month.

They include two members of Poole Pirates' class of 2019 in Nico Covatti and Josh Grajczonek.

Aussie Grajczonek captained Pirates to the SGB Premiership play-offs, where they suffered a surprise semi-final defeat to Ipswich Witches.

Covatti was also part of that side, having recovered from a month-long lay-off due to broken ribs suffered while colliding with team-mate Richie Worrall.

The pair will be joined at Wimborne Road by British ace and former Poole man Edward Kennett, who now rides for Eastbourne Eagles.

The testimonial for long-serving team boss Middleditch is due to take place on Wednesday, March 25 (7.30pm).

A total of 12 riders have now been announced for the evening.

Chris Holder, Bjarne Pedersen, Brady Kurtz, Jack Holder, Nicolai Klindt, Adam Ellis, Danny King, Chris Harris and Scott Nicholls are also due to be in attendance.

Poole, who have dropped down into the SGB Championship for 2020, are set to begin their campaign the following week, hosting Somerset Rebels on April 1.

Middleditch is set to share team management duties with Gary Havelock this year.
