Bowtell in Gladiators return

Plymouth Gladiators have announced the next rider in their 2021 team, with the signing of 24-year-old Alfie Bowtell.

Bowtell had no hesitation in signing for Plymouth commenting ‘I’m really looking forward to being back at Plymouth this season and meeting the fans again. Mark (promoter Mark Phillips) is putting together an awesome team.’

Phillips was equally delighted to secure the signature of Bowtell for another season.

‘Alfie really knows his way around the Plymouth track as he has shown each time he rides here, including in the Three Team Tournament and the Young Lions meeting last season and I was delighted when he agreed to return’ said Phillips.

‘He has previous Championship experience with Newcastle, Eastbourne Eagles and The Lakeside Hammers, and I’m certain he will provide us with real scoring power at the lower end of the team.’
