Poole co-promoter Dan Ford has confirmed that Danyon Hume has been selected as their 'rising star' for 2021

Hume was a member of the Leicester team that celebrated a National League double in the last season of racing, 2019, with success in the league and knockout cup. 

Although the inclusion of Hume came about as an enforced a change at the lower end of the team to comply with 'rising star', that cost Josh MacDonald his team place, Ford admitted "we were close to signing Danyon in 2020 but at the time we went for a change in direction, but as things have panned out the opportunity has arisen and we welcome Danyon into the side.

"We have what we believe is a really good prospect. He is an exciting Brit who spearheaded the Cubs to success in 2019 alongside Ellis Perks. Whilst he may not be as high a profile rider as the likes of Drew Kemp, Anders Rowe, Jordan Palin and Leon Flint he actually achieved a higher National League average in 2019 than all of them, as he breached the nine point mark, and we are hoping that our fans really get behind this talented rider, who, we know is determined to grab this chance with both hands."
