Right-on for Roynon over Tigers deal

Have your say

Sheffield favourite Adam Roynon believes the club is in good hands after a consortium agreed a deal to take over the club.

The move brings to an end a spell of uncertainty for the club after Neil Machin announced his desire to step away from the sport at the end of last season following a staggering 21-year spell at the helm.

Star man Roynon is delighted to see the long-term future of the Tigers secured as they prepare to launch an assault for the Premier League title when the new season gets underway in March.

And says he is delighted to see co-promoter David Hoggart taking a prominent role in the new set-up as he fronts the incoming consortium – and he feels the changes will bring a ‘new lease of life’ to Sheffield.

Said Roynon: “It’s really good to know the club is still in a strong place with new people coming in.

“It gives a new lease of life to the club and it’s great to be a part of that.

“From a rider’s perspective it’s just a relief to know exactly what is happening and that my team spot is secure, and like everyone I’m just excited for the season to start now.

“It’s great to see David Hoggart fronting the consortium taking over – he definitely knows his stuff and he’s been around the club for a long time.

“He understands how things work behind the scenes and he’s also a great person to have in the pits as well.

“He’s a really bubbly figure who is an important part of Sheffield.

“So it’s good he’s still going to play a big part.”
