Gearlink Kawasaki team manager Ben Wilson added: “We are really pleased to have signed Corderoy and retain McGlinchey for another year.

“We feel we have a strong line-up this year and with the knowledge we have got, I believe both riders can run at the front.

“It has always been the ethos of the Gearlink team to develop and bring on new riders and I feel there is definite potential in both Corderoy and McGlinchey.

“McGlinchey finished in a strong sixth place in last year’s championship and has shown that he has the pace to be on the podium.

“Corderoy really caught my eye with his mature approach to racing and his dominating form towards the end of last season in the Junior Superstock 600 Championship.”
