SHEFFIELD will be led into the 2018 season by Kyle Howarth – and co-promoter Damien Bates reckons it is one of their biggest signings in recent memory.

Talks to bring Howarth back to Owlerton have reached a successful conclusion with his parent club Workington.

The 23-year-old has now finally put pen to paper on a new deal with the Window Centre Tigers as their No.1 and captain.

And Bates said: “We are delighted to have Kyle back on board for another season and I'm sure our supporters are too.

“A lot has been made about the move but we would like to thank Workington for their co-operation and personally I am genuinely delighted.

“I would go as far a to say I believe Kyle is probably the best signing I have made in my time as a promoter.”

Meanwhile, Howarth says he never wanted to ride anywhere but Sheffield as he gets set for his third straight season with the club.
Howarth added: “It’s great news for me to be back. I’m really excited and after two solid years at Sheffield I didn’t want to be anywhere else.

“We had a great season last year and to win the league with Sheffield was awesome, but I want to keep winning trophies with the club and hopefully defend our title this year.”
