THE composition of the 2003 Ipswich Evening Star Witches Elite League speedway team became clearer with yesterday's agreement to sign Dane Tom P Madsen to fill the number six berth.

Madsen, who rode for King's Lynn this year, will be on loan from Premier League Berwick. His reserve partner for most of the league fixtures will be Danny Bird, who is set to take a floater role.

"We have purposely gone for two strong reserves," said Witches director Magda Louis today. "If all goes to plan we will have power at the bottom end and not be top heavy in 2003."
