Swedish GP star to captain club in 2015

Lakeside Hammers have announced that returning number one rider and Grand Prix star Andreas Jonsson will lead the team as their new captain in 2015.

With only two weeks to go before the club begin one of their most eagerly anticipated Elite League seasons at Purfleet, Hammers have also confirmed Richard Lawson will continue in his role as vice-captain.

Co-promoter Jon Cook said: “AJ was delighted to accept the position and we believe his all-round attributes on and off the track will inspire his team mates and be worth extra points when it counts.”

Jonsson’s first chance to lead the team comes on Friday March 20 in the Rico Spring Classic when the Vortex Hammers will take on a Lee’s All Stars line-up in memory of the late Lee Richardson.
