“I’m delighted we could get this news to the fans ahead of the Christmas holiday.” said Hammers owner, Stuart Douglas. “It’s always really exciting announcing a new team, and we are really pleased that the last few pieces of the jigsaw fell into place much quicker than expected. I think this is one of the most thrilling teams we have ever tracked - we can look forward to 2012 with great anticipation. Merry Christmas everyone!”

Returning to the Lakeside Hammers 2012 team are their captain, British International Lee Richardson, Swedish youngster Kim Nilsson, the Hammers 2011 ‘Rider of the Year’ Robert Mear, Stuart Robson and multi Finnish champion Kauko Nieminen, who all rode for the Club in 2011. Robson and Nieminen will share one of the doubling up roles whilst Nilsson will, initially, occupy one of the reserve positions in the team although it is expected that he will quickly move up into the top five as soon as he completes his first two away League matches and receives a new average. New to the Club in 2012 are Australian International Davey Watt, who captained the 2011 League Champions Poole, Swedish International Peter Karlsson, who rode for his parent Club Wolverhampton last season, and reserve doubling up pairing of 20 year old British rider Richie Worrall and 19 year old Australian Justin Sedgmen.
