This will be Fry's third season at the Oak Tree Arena, and he told BBC Hereford and Worcester he's looking forward to trying to build on the progress the team made last year:
"We had a good season; we lifted the Premier Fours Trophy, which was obviously a good Trophy to pick up.
"We struggled at the beginning of the season, and came good at the end, which isn't good, really, because, obviously, you need to be good all the way through!
"We sort of picked up strength at the end, and, hopefully, with most of the team members back this year, we can progress on that."

Paul has previously raced for Cradley Heath and Swindon, but has lived in and around Hereford all his life.
He says he's delighted that one of the leading lights at Somerset Rebels is to remain with the club after all:
"I am especially pleased that Mick Bell has decided to shelve any retirement plans, and stay on as Team Manager.
"Mick is one of the best Team Managers I've ever ridden for."
Rebels Co-promoter, Jo Lawson feels that things are coming together nicely for the new season:
"I am very pleased that we have signed up "The Fryer" for a third term at Somerset, as I still feel that he has a lot to offer any team with his undoubted skills and bravery whilst riding a speedway bike.
"Paul has also been granted a 20 year benefit meeting, which shall be held at the Oak Tree Arena, at a date to be confirmed."
As for Paul himself, he says he enjoys riding at Somerset, as he feels he's getting to grips with the track:
"I did struggle in my first year down at Highbridge; it's getting the right set up.
"It took me nigh on a season to crack it; last year, the one engine was good around the Oak Tree Arena and suited the track.
"It's quite a small track, but it does ride ever so fast!"

With a starting average of 7.15, Fryer's inclusion in the Somerset line up for 2006 means that the club have 5.21 points to play with for their final top 5 rider; a figure that will mean there will be a new face at the Oak Tree Arena next season, as it precludes a return to Rebel colours for Ritchie Hawkins.
As they begin to build towards the new season, which is due to start in March, the Hereford star says one thing is for sure; the speedway at the Oak Tree Arena will never be dull:
"I know we used to get some of the Exeter fans at the track, even when Exeter was running last year, and they used to say the racing (at Somerset) was much better.
"That's one good thing about the Oak Tree Arena, it is a racer's track.
"I have improved on my gating, but I'm not really the best of the gaters, and I do tend to come from second or third place and, obviously, try to win."
