Mildenhall Fen Tigers have named Australian teenager Cameron Heeps as their fifth rider for the 2011 season.

The 15-year-old, who will ride at reserve, joins the Suffolk club on a three-point average.

Heeps won the Western Australia Junior State title earlier in the year and is set to make his first step up to the senior speedway ranks.

"I believe we have signed the hottest Aussie prospect this year," Tigers co-promoter Chris Louis said.

"I know a number of clubs were looking at Cameron but when he heard that he'd be getting the chance to work with [co-promoter and former world champion] Michael Lee and joining a young vibrant team he had no hesitation in choosing Mildenhall."
