Birmingham Brummies confirm Nicolas Covatti signing

Birmingham Brummies have signed Italian international Nicolas Covatti.

The Argentinian born rider, 24, will join the Brummies ahead of their derby clash with Coventry on Thursday.

Co-promotor Graham Drury said: "Phil Morris [Birmingham boss] recognised Covatti's potential and he has to take full credit for the signing."

Morris added: "I saw he scored well in the GP qualifier and thought we had nothing to lose. The boy is keen and raring to go."
