Coventry have made hard-riding American international Ryan Fisher the latest signing for their 2014 team.

Club asset Fisher last rode for the Bees in 2011 and has since had loan spells with Plymouth and in the top flight last season with Peterborough.

Fisher, who captained his country in their successful 2013 FIM Speedway World Cup campaign, first appeared for Coventry back in 2002 and is entitled to a testimonial next year, meaning both he and Chris Harris will stage benefit meetings at Brandon.

Fisher joins Harris and Kenneth Hansen in a revamped Bees team, with two places left to complete the top five, who will be joined by two British youngsters at reserve.

Coventry owner Mick Horton said: “I’m very pleased to bring Ryan back to the club. I watched his progress at Peterborough this year, and he had a good season with them.

“When you talk to any rider, what they say about Ryan is that they’d rather have him in their team than against them!

“You know what you’ll get with him, we know he’s going to chip in with points for us at any track in the country, and he’s great entertainment.

“I’m confident our team for 2014 will be the most exciting in the Elite League, and we’re hopeful of moving quickly regarding the remaining riders.”

Coventry can also confirm Good Friday, April 18, will be a big date in next season’s calendar as they will face home and away clashes with top-league newcomers Leicester.

Bees will make the short trip to the Jordan Road Surfacing Stadium for an afternoon meeting, with the Brandon return in the evening.
