King’s Lynn have drafted British racer Jordan Frampton into their squad to replace injured Aussie star Kozza Smith.

Smith suffered a broken femur in the opening round of the Australian Championship at North Brisbane on January 7.

The injury looks set to sideline him until around June, which has ruled him out of Berwick and King’s Lynn’s plans for now.

Frampton races full-time for Rye House in the British Premier League and will share his place in the Stars side with former Cardiff wild card David Howe.

King’s Lynn team manager Rob Lyon told the club’s official website: “Jordan is a very determined rider who is quick and isn’t afraid to mix it. That is the sort of rider you need to be in Elite League and I am sure he will provide good back up to David when called upon.”
