Craig Marchant (World Veterans Champion)
and our very own
Gavin Parr (BC British Veterans Champion).
Vikings Captain undergoes surgery
Northumbria skipper Gavin Parr has undergone a successful back operation just prior to Christmas to cure a long term problem. It remains to be seen whether he can emerge even stronger and faster than the out-and-out racer and top performer he was in 2015, but surely not!
Vikings sign Top Scots
Following the surprise announcement that we are due to host the all-powerful Wednesfield (West Midlands) team WITHOUT our talisman, Vikings Captain and British Champion Gavin Parr, in a season-opening friendly match I can now reveal that we have made two extremely useful signings!
Unfortunately Edinburgh Falcons skipper and Scotland international star Mikey Hewitson (left) and fellow heat leader Neil “Swanny” Swanson will only be wearing the purple of the Vikings for one day, but the news comes as a very welcome Christmas present to the home club who had feared a total rout by the Midlanders on February 28th!
