SHEFFIELD Tigers have completed their signings for next season’s assault on the Championship title.

Popular Brit Kyle Howarth has agreed to stay with the club and American ace Broc Nicol is back for his first full season in British racing.

Fans have responded with positive messages to club bosses and there is plenty of excitement ahead of the season launch next spring.

Co-promoter Damien Bates said: “It’s a great pleasure to welcome both Kyle and Broc back to Sheffield next season and as a management team we feel really pleased with the way the team has taken shape.

“We had some great feedback on signing class acts Danny King and Ty Proctor in the week and I can tell there’s a genuine enthusiasm about the place.”

Howarth says the side is good enough to bounce back from a troubled 2018.

He said: “Sheffield want revenge on the league and they want that league trophy back - and as long as we have a bit of luck on our side with injuries and that then there’s no reason why we can’t do that.”

Nicol enjoyed his spell with the Tigers in his debut UK season.

“I did Ok and I have to aim to build on it,” he said. “I’ve learnt a lot and hopefully this will benefit me when we get going next year.”
