SHEFFIELD Tigers have swooped to snap up 2016 British Champion Danny King.

Popular King has been available after Ipswich gained promotion to the Premiership and will spearhead the Sheffield challenge for Championship glory next year.

He’s also joined by Ty Proctor, who won the treble with Workington last season and has agreed a second spell with Tigers.

Both riders were unveiled on Wednesday night to add to the exciting capture of teenage sensation Drew Kemp and Dane Kasper Andersen.

King said: “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.”

Proctor, meanwhile, said: “It’s great to be fixed up with a club like Sheffield, I’ve been a regular visitor anyway and I’m pleased to have rejoined them.”

Sheffield have also confirmed the renewal of their long running team sponsorship arrangement with Sheffield Window Centre.

Co-promoter Damien Bates said: “Sponsorship is more important than ever in modern day sport and we welcome Ian Hunter and his team back for another season. We sincerely appreciate their loyal support of Sheffield Speedway.”

Season tickets for an exciting new season, which sees Tigers racing home meetings at 4pm on Sundays, are now available from sheffield-speedway.com/ticketoffice – the official club website.
