LOCAL youngster Joe Alcock has become Stoke’s first signing for the 2018 season.

Alcock rode for Midlands Development League Carmarthen Dragons who used Loomer Road as their home base for the 2017 season and became a dominant force in the Dragons outfit and alerted the Potters promotion of his potential which gained him a couple of guest bookings for the Potters and a couple of other Travel Plus National League clubs during the season.

Alcock, 18, who comes from Stoke On Trent commented “I’m delighted to have signed for my home town club it’s been something I’ve wanted to do since I rode around the Loomer Road track at the age of 7 years old and tonight that reality has come true and I cannot wait to get started.”

Potters promoter Dave Tattum said “I’ve known Joe for a long time and he has come on leaps and bounds this season and I’m really pleased that we have a local lad in the team for next year.”
