Ben Mould in action
A Spokesman from Wales first British Premier League Club commented, this is why East Newport are a forward thinking Club every year the Club has progressed & now we find ourselves in the Top League of racing which is a very pleasing factor for the Welsh Club, & With some of our riders not taking the easy option of joining an established premier side decided to start from scratch. We knew the fixture against the Aces was going to be an eye opener, and this proved just by Wednesfield putting out possibly their strongest side. All the East Newport's riders gave 100% effort with Ben Mould going though the card unbeaten for the 2nd time this season.
