King's Lynn Stars have announced that team manager Rob Lyon has become co-promoter of Elite League speedway side.

Former Great Britain manager Lyon has headed the Norfolk Arena Club since 2005.

He said: “Buster (Chapman) had spoken to me about the possibility of becoming involved on the promotional side to ease the burden of the day-to-day running of the club.

“I was happy to accept, and I hope I can have a positive influence on not only Kings Lynn, but also speedway in general, as it is a difficult time in the sport for all concerned as we all know at the moment.”
