LAKESIDE Hammers boss Stuart Douglas is 'very satisfied' after seeing his team secure a third place finish in the 2009 Sky Sports Elite League.
“Last season we were mixing it up with Poole, this season with Wolves and Swindon, all big, well established speedway teams,” said Douglas.
“It confirms to me that the work done by Jon Cook and all the riders since we came in is paying dividends.
“The object is to cement the Hammers as a play-off team each and every year and I'm very satisfied that we are well on course to achieving that aim. And we've done it whilst keeping the club on a stable financial footing which is a hugely impressive feat.”
