Workington speedway ace Kyle Howarth named in GB Under-21s

Workington Comets Kyle Howarth has underlined his growing reputation by being named in Britain's Under-21 side.
Howarth will link up with Joe Haines, Kyle Newman, and the Worrall twins Richie and Steve in the world Under-21 semi-final at Lakeside on May 27.
Britain will be up against Denmark, Australia and Czech Republic and will face riders such as Darcy Ward and Michael Jepsen Jensen.
Howarth said: “I am really happy and it should be a good meeting.
“It would be nice to win but it is going to be really hard because it will have all the top lads who are on form.
“I want to prove to the people that I deserve my spot in the team.”
The winning team will go through to the final at Bydgoszcz in Poland on September 1.
Howarth added: “Everybody can be beaten on the day and I just need to make starts and go from there.
“I am there to have a good time and we will get the crowd behind us.
“I have ridden Lakeside in the Elite League. It is a decent track but a bit slick so not like Workington.”
Over the last few weeks Howarth has been signed by Elite League side King's Lynn, then released without racing a match before being snapped up by parent club Poole.
Howarth said: “I am always at home with Poole and have a good time there.
“I just want to keep what I am doing in the Premier League and trying to score well.
“I get on along well with riders such as Chris Holder and Darcy and hopefully both of them will be able to help me out.
“That will help me in the Elite League which should also help me in the Premier League so I want to keep enjoying myself and keep smiling.”
Howarth has admittedly struggled since moving up to number four but he claims it was just a bad week.
He said: “I just haven't made the gates and it just wasn't my week.
“I still believe in myself and even though it is a bit harder it makes you push harder. I know I can do it and I want to prove that to people.”
