Rusty Harrison will not be Workington Comets speedway captain - Denham

Fans' favourite Rusty Harrison will not lead Workington to glory in 2012 after owner Keith Denahm ruled the veteran out of the race to captain Comets.

Denham stated the 30-year-old Aussie had enough to deal with without the burden of leading the team.

Declining to name his skipper, Denham said Richard Lawson was a candidate, but no decision was imminent.

Lawson, 25, was in scintillating form last year, and was recognised for his efforts at the club’s end of season awards night.

Picking up Rider of the Year - beating Harrison by just one vote - Lawson is hotly tipped to take over from the departed Tomas Topinka.

Denham said: “I have no idea who will captain the team next year and right now, I don’t have to.

“It won’t be Rusty because he has other things to concentrate on than leading the team.
