Reading promoter Pat Bliss has issued the following statement:
After seeking and agreeing permission from Trelawny to speak to Matej Zagar, the Berkshire club have met up with the Slovenian rider and agreed terms with him to ride for the Racers in 2004. He has readily signed all the necessary forms and a Work Permit will be applied for.

Pat Bliss met Matej after he made a brief trip to England to attend a birthday party for Chris Harris and is confident he will fit in well in the set up at Reading. He was very enthusiastic and positive and is looking forward to the new season in Racers colours. The final confirmation of this will be made following news from Trelawny on their latest planning application.

Further news from the Racers camp is that Phil Morris is recovering well after his latest knee operation and is set to resume his captaincy fully fit and ready for the new season.
