Tigers star Adam Roynon has revealed his delight after sealing a deal to return to Owlerton for the 2014 season.

The popular 25 year old enjoyed a two-month spell with the club this year only to see a broken collarbone end his season. But after returning to fitness, Roynon will be back at Sheffield, joining skipper Simon Stead.

After enduring a prolonged spell of injury problems, the Cumbrian is eyeing a trouble-free season to rebuild his career. He believes he is in the perfect place – and he is backing Sheffield to bounce back from two years of disappointment to challenge for the Premier League title.

Roynon said: “I’m over the moon to be back, Sheffield is a great club. Owlerton is a track I’ve always loved visiting as an away rider so when I had the chance to make it my home track last year I was delighted.

“Unfortunately injury meant I didn’t get to race there as much as I wanted but I’m really pleased to be back and the have another chance.

“I’ll be fit for the new season and even though I had a tough year in 2013 I’m raring to go.

“I need to try and get an injury-free season under my belt to get my career going again. I want to start winning races again, keep my confidence up, get some consistency and score points regularly.

“Obviously I’m looking to up my average and do a good job for the team and I know I’m capable of doing that as long as I can stay fit.

“If the team they are talking about comes together then we’ll look really strong. We need a good year after the last couple of seasons, and if things go our way then we could even go all the way. We’ll need a bit more luck than we had last year but things are looking positive.”
