Good lad, just needs an extended chance.

Think this is a good signing by Kent, especially at a time when all the top youngsters have been snapped up and not too

many choices left. Must be an improvement on their original choice.

I don't expect O'Keefe to score many, but at least he's an improvement on Clouting!

To be fair to Clouting, he had 1 ride at the beginning of the season when he fell while leading & broke his ankle, then he had 2 matches recently when he was fit again these were home & away against Eastbourne so hardly an easy route back to racing again after an injury.

Glad to see William get another team spot. Is never going to be a world beater but is making steady progress. Hopefully Kent will give him the rest of the season, he deserves a spell in one team.

it wasn't racing though, it was falling off

I'm sure I read somewhere that the Kent management AND Clouting's father all agreed that he was not yet ready for NL racing. Cannot

disagree because he fell off far too many times IMO.    O'Keefe is certainly a better bet although not a World Beater for sure. People I've spoken

to about him reckon he's got plenty of guts....hope this shows itself in some good scores so that he keeps his place.    This is the aspect of NL

racing that really appeals to me, a new youngster trying to make his way.  Fascinating.
