Ipswich Witches skipper Danny King has set his sights high in 2016.
The 29-year-old is not only hoping to lead the Witches to Premier League title glory, but he wants to finish top of the league’s averages too.
It’s a big ask, but one King is quite capable of achieving and one he is determined to fulfil.
“I don’t see any reason why I can’t finish top of the averages in the Premier League this year,” he said.
“Last year both Craig Cook and Edward Kennett beat me twice round Foxhall at the end of last year and that grates. I want to finish top this season and I want to win the PLRC (Premier League Riders’ Championship).

“It’s about time Ipswich did something significant in the Premier League. I was looking at it the other day and the club haven’t really won anything since the club moved into this league.
“That needs to change.”

King was speaking at the Witches press day in the town.
Of course he has his personal goals, but as captain of the team, he wants team glory too.
“We have quite an experienced side this season,” King said.
“In fact we must be one of the older teams in the Premier League this season, which is a bit of a change from years gone by.
“That’s fine with me and I think we have a very strong top five.
And King told Witches fans to look out for James Sarjeant this season, the youngster will be riding with King at one and two in the team line-up announced last night.
“James is a good lad and he’ll be fine,” King said.
“I know he’s a bit twitchy at the start, but Chris Louis is going to help him with that. He’ll be riding with me at No.2 and he finished well at Glasgow last season.”
