‘Mildenhall is like my second home,’ was the message from Danny Halsey as he resigned for the Fen Tigers ahead of the 2017 season.

Halsey will return to the Mildenhall Stadium for the seventh consecutive year, and the man who sits seventh in the club’s all-time point scoring chart with 1,543 says he hopes to prove some of his doubters wrong.

“I’m really looking forward to my seventh year at the club which is like my second home these days,” he said.

“I still can’t believe this will be my seventh year. That’s almost half the age of our reserve Jordan Jenkins, which makes me feel a little old!

“I had noticed I hadn’t been put forward by some of the supporters in their teams for next season so hopefully I can prove a couple of the doubters wrong this year and really step it up.

“I really want to be ready from the off and start as I mean to go on with some big scores.”

Club promoter, Kevin Jolly, said: “In my mind, on his day Danny is as good as it gets at this level.

“He just needs to find his consistency early on and maintain it throughout to have another big season for us.”

Halsey is the third rider to have committed to the Fen Tigers for next season after Jordan Jenkins and veteran Jon Armstrong.
