Elite League clubs Poole and Eastbourne have wasted little time in making moves to assemble their 2004 starting septets as both have made early signings.

Edward Kennett will ride for Eastbourne on a full-time basis next season. Kennett, aged just 17, spent last term with Rye House in the Premier League but now wants a crack at the Elite League. Eagles boss Jon Cook said: "We thank Len Silver at Rye House for his part in Edward's development and we're looking forward to seeing him move to the next level."

It's a rapid rise to the top for the teenager after his debut year in the sport. He began 2003 with Rye as a rookie reserve but ended it on top of the club's averages

Further along the South coast from Eastbourne, defending champions Poole have confirmed the signing of Davey Watt to start their team building for next season. The Australian played a major part in the club's treble winning campaign as he helped them to the Elite League, Knockout Cup and British League Cup.

Pirates co-promoter Matt Ford said: "We're more than happy to have Davey back on board because he is one of the best young riders around."
