TIGERS owner Neil Machin says the appointment of Richard Hall as skipper for the new season is good for both rider and team.

Hall is back at Owlerton after a season out on loan at Leicester followed by a short spell at Scunthorpe. Machin reckons the captaincy role could be just what Hall needs to establish himself as one of the top Premier League riders.

He said: “Richard has a good crew around him in the pits and that will give him time to carry out captaincy duties. It could be a very good year for Richard. We feel that his new role will help raise his own game and he can go on to become one of the stand-out riders in the Premier League. He has lots of experience under his belt and been part of successful Sheffield teams in the past. He’s a very determined character and willing to work with the club management in the best interests of Sheffield Speedway.”
