Speedway: Maassen poised for Tigers bow

Have your say

New signing Danny Maassen will make his Tigers debut against Ipswich tonight.

The 19-year-old German has signed for the Tigers for the rest of the season after impressing during two practice sessions, filling the gap left by the retired Joe Haines.

Team boss David Hoggart said: “We feel that he’s ready to make the step up now. He’s very keen to impress and progress. Hopefully he can come in and show what he’s capable of.”

Richard Lawson once again takes the number one race-jacket for Sheffield in the absence of Simon Stead.
