Pirates bring in Wells as replacement for Busk Jakobsen. 17th July 2019
The No 1 Carpet Cleaning Poole Pirates have confirmed that American Ricky Wells will replace reserve Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen.
Jakobsen, hasn’t been available for the Pirates for the last four meetings, due to an appendix issue.
Wells, who comes in on a 4.24 average, has recently enjoyed a profitable spell guesting for both Jakobsen and the injured Nico Covatti, by picking up big scores of 9+1 and 10 at Wimborn Road against Kings Lynn and away at Ipswich last week.
Co-Promoter Danny Ford said “Ricky has performed superbly since being released by Belle Vue at the end of June. “Nikolaj’s illness has set him back and we felt it best if he was given some time to recover fully without the strain of travelling to and from Britain. “Ricky has been excellent coming in as a guest, and now we also have Nico coming back from injury. I think they will play a big role for us at reserve for the remainder of the season”.
