HANS Andersen has ended his self imposed exile from British racing by agreeing terms with Elite League strugglers Poole.

He replaces Ales Dryml and returns to the club where his career started in 2001.

Pirates chief Matt Ford said: “I'm happy to welcome Hans back on board. He is the one rider I made a bit of a mistake to let go of in the first place at the end of 2002.”

Poole, currently second bottom in the League, are sure to sling-shot themselves up the table now, with Andersen joining Bjarne Pedersen and Chris Holder as the strongest heat-leader trio in the country.
