Co-promoter Steve Jenson said: "The first time I met Chris was during a pre-meeting track walk at this year's British semi-final at Scunthorpe. I was immediately impressed by the way he talked about the sport, and by his professional credentials.
"That stuck with me, and as soon I heard that Chris was looking for a winter move to new pastures I wanted him to be a part of the team.
"Like Scott, he is going to be a key part of the squad, and like Scott he is going to bring much more to us than just the points he scores on the track."
