COVENTRY have confirmed a return to Brandon in 2015 for No.1 rider Hans Andersen.The Dane, who has previously won Elite League titles with Peterborough and Swindon, helped the Bees reach the Grand Final this year and will look to continue his successful partnership with club captain Chris Harris.Promoter Mick Horton said: “We’re talking about true out-and-out No.1s who are currently riding in the Elite League, and they don’t come much better than Hans. “He and Bomber lead by example and their partnership is amazing. They are two completely different riders who gel well together – there’s no point having two riders who go for the same lines, they complement each other perfectly and I’m sure we’ll reap the benefits again.”

SHEFFIELD have signed talented 19-year-old former Moto3 racer Arthur Sissis for the 2015 season.It means a return to speedway for Sissis after previous experience on the shale as a schoolboy before carving out a promising career in the road racing series.Co-promoter Damien Bates said: “He can do some amazing things on a speedway bike and I don't think I've ever been more excited to see a rider join Sheffield, either as a fan or promoter.“He's a level-headed lad, has plenty of experience racing in Europe in the GPs and he really wants to do well. He's very professional in every aspect. I think speedway's in his blood and GP racing's loss could be our gain.”

KENT have recalled three of their National League play-off qualifying team of this season for their 2015 line-up.Ben Morley is set to take over as the Kings’ No.1 and he will be joined by Aaron Baseby and Danny Ayres who both impressed at Central Park this year. With newcomer James Shanes also signed up, Kent will now await the outcome of next Tuesday’s NL AGM before making their final decisions.Co-promoter Len Silver said: “It’s all about what points limit is going to be set now and this will be the key decision coming out of the NL meeting next week. The size of the division looks like it will be a little larger and that may influence thinking regarding the points limit which some people think might be reduced. But we’ll need to wait and see now. “We’re delighted, though, to be so far down the road already of building another successful Kings side, with the naming of four talented and all very popular riders this week getting us ahead of the game before we do have that Chairman’s meeting.”
