The Pride of the Potteries field has been completed with Arran Butcher and William O’Keefe being named as the final two riders.

Both Butcher and O’Keefe featured for the Potters last season and promoter Dave Tattum felt they both deserved a chance after both became popular with supporters and it gave the riders an opportunity to put themselves in the shop window after both have missed out on places for the start of the campaign.
O’Keefe started the season with the Potters before he was injured and Butcher joined midway through the season.

Potters promoter Dave Tattum commented “Both Arran (Butcher) and William (O’Keefe) rode for us last season and are young riders and I feel they deserve the chance to race in a meeting such as this and I’m sure they will take an enormous amount of knowledge from the meeting with experienced riders both on and off the track.”

The draw for the meeting will take place on Saturday at 12 noon live on the official Stoke Facebook page.

Riders confirmed: Tom Perry, Connor Coles, Luke Priest, Shelby Rutherford, Joe Alcock, Corban Pavitt, Max Clegg, Ben Barker, Josh Bates, Jon Armstrong, Arran Butcher, William O’Keefe, Jack Smith, Tom Woolley, Ellis Perks, David Wallinger
