British Championship runners-up Steve Worrall and Dan Bewley are both back at Belle Vue in 2019 as Aces announced their one to seven.

The Lions stars join already-confirmed pair Max Fricke and Kenneth Bjerre, with French international Dimitri Berge, USA star Ricky Wells and Aussie Under-21 champion Jaimon Lidsey completing a promising side.

We were robbed of the chance to see Steve and Dan complete a full season last year due to injury and that has been a huge motivator in their recovery efforts, and we’re delighted to have them back.

Worrall and Bewley both saw their 2018 seasons badly disrupted by injury, with Worrall bouncing back from a broken leg, before Bewley broke multiple bones in his leg and shoulder in an horrific crash at Workington in August.

Both will be keen to hit top form when the SGB Premiership resumes in the spring, while Berge bids to build on his end-of-season stint with the Aces this year and Wells aims to make his mark on his club debut.

Lidsey makes the move to Britain for the first time after making his European bow with Rawicz in the Polish Second Division.

Club boss Mark Lemon said: “Building a competitive team is no easy feat and with so many options take into consideration, I took my time trying finding a rounded team before settling on this one to seven.

“I think we’ve achieved a great balance. On paper, it’s a solid line-up with a good variety of skills, strengths, experience and youth. I’m confident they’ll be as impressive in their on-track endeavours.

“We were robbed of the chance to see Steve and Dan complete a full season last year due to injury and that has been a huge motivator in their recovery efforts, and we’re delighted to have them back.

“Having spent majority of his top-flight career with Wolverhampton and most recently Leicester, Ricky is ready for a new challenge. He has a great deal of untapped potential which we hope he can draw out, and will provide a solid part of the top-five make up.

“It’s a similar story with Dimitri. We’ve only seen a fraction of what he is capable of, and I think he will develop and come on strong when starting his first full season in the Premiership.

“Jaimon, who is well known to me, comes to us as a very talented youngster and will be an exciting inclusion to the team in his debut season in Britain.”
