Sheffield Tigers announce double signing

Speedway team Sheffield Tigers have announced the signing of former British Champion Danny King to their roster for next season.

He is joined by Ty Proctor, who re-signs for the team after he won the treble with Workington Comets last season.

Both riders were unveiled on Wednesday night, with 2016 British Champion King saying: “I’m really pleased to be joining a great club like Sheffield. I already know the management really well and I love the big, fast track.

“Looking at the way the team is coming together, I think we can have a great season.”

The duo bolster the squad, who have managed to retain the services of Dane Kasper Andersen and signed teenage sensation Drew Kemp, a 16-year-old rookie joining from Ipswich.

The Tigers finished rock bottom of the Championship last season, the second tier of British Speedway, after winning the 2017 title.
