JD makes an early return

The Lakeside Hammers will welcome back their Swedish star Jonas Davidsson earlier than expected after the fans favourite confirmed his wish to return to the side with immediate effect.

It means he returns to the Essex based Club in time for this Friday’s last, and now most crucial, Elite League meeting of the season against the in form Birmingham Brummies, which takes place at the Arena-Essex Raceway.

The Hammers Co Promoter Jon Cook commented: “We are all delighted to have JD (Jonas Davidsson) back with us and his keenness to get over here and start racing is great news for us. He will come into the side for this Friday’s home match and it’s a big boost for us ahead of yet another must win meeting. The 46 League points total is now within our grasp and if we get there our chances of Play Off qualification look good, especially with other recent results generally having been in our favour.”
