The Mancunian teenager enjoyed a sensational season in 2012, regularly recording double figure scores from reserve but co-promoter Laura Morgan said he would start 2013 in the main body of the team.

Howarth is currently spending time in Australia gaining more experience.

Morgan said: “Kyle showed his desire to come back here which is what you always look for and I think the supporters deserve somebody who wants to ride for Workington.

“He fits in well with the team and was always very keen to come to us.

“He will be riding in the main body of the team which is more difficult than being at number seven but he has got masses of potential and he can definitely handle it.

“He had some bad luck with injuries last season that kept him out for a couple of months which were not really his fault. However, he went to the gym and fought his way back. He is very professional for such a young man and from what I have picked up on he is very fun as well.

“I think he did surprise a lot of people last season but the supporters have been very vocal wanting him to come back and I have no doubt he will be an asset to speedway and we just hope he can stay injury free.”

Howarth, right, already joins Richard Lawson and Dane Rene Bach as confirmed starters for 2013 and Morgan said she will wait until after the British Speedway Promoters Association conference, which began yesterday, before announcing any more signings.

Morgan has also helped out cash strapped Edinburgh by donating a substantial amount of money after the club racked up huge debts in 2012.

Meanwhile, Adam Roynon has picked up another two awards to add to his already growing collection as he was named British Rider of the Year and National League Rider of the Year by online radio station Biker FM.

Comets rider Kenny Ingalls has also flown back to America where he will continue to recover from the horrific injuries he suffered from a crash in July.
