RICHARD Hall is on his way back to Sheffield Tigers for a third spell with his parent club.

Hall, 27, has often been the victim of the sport’s points limit and joined new club Leicester at the start of last season before joining Scunthorpe.

Now he’s agreed a deal to return to Owlerton where he first rode for the club’s junior side back in 2003 before stepping up to senior racing the following season.

Hall won the Elite League title with Peterborough in one of the most sensational Grand Finals of all time back in 2006 but has ridden for several clubs since then.

He can’t wait to get started back at a track he loves but admits he will be looking for extra sponsorship.

Said Hall: “I’m really happy to be back at Sheffield, it’s a great club run in a very professional way and I get on really well with everyone there.

“It feels right for me to be back with them and I believe we’re starting to look like a solid team who can be hard to beat.

“I need some extra sponsorship and I would urge any individuals or businesses who can offer me some help to contact the club and ask to speak to me.

“I want to be as competitive as possible and the sport is very expensive these days but I would love to be out there winning races for Sheffield on a regular basis like I have done in the past.”

Hall joins fellow Tigers assets Hugh Skidmore and Emiliano Sanchez in the 2012 Tigers side along with new faces Klaus Jakobsen and Joe Haines. The club are hoping to complete their team plans within the next week with the target of a genuine number one the priority.
