SHEFFIELD can confirm the return of a second title winning hero.

Josh Bates has agreed to extend his stay with the club where he will link up with Dane Lasse Bjerre.

The Barnsley racer has a starting average of 6.54 and Bjerre is on 8.32 as the club start to put their team building jigsaw pieces together.

And Bates admits everyone has a lot to live up to after a memorable championship winning season.

“It’s a big challenge for everyone, but I’m excited by it,” he said.

“Last season was amazing and it’s given me and everyone at Sheffield a taste for success.

“The Championship is looking really strong when you look around at the other teams, but we’re going to be strong too and we’ll take some beating.

“For me personally it’s nice to know I’m sorted in both the Championship and Premiership, doubling up again, I’m pleased about that.

“I’m working hard already to prepare for next season and I know it’s a big year for me.”

Sheffield are also close to completing other deals with more team announcements expected this week.
