STEFAN Nielsen revealed he was looking forward to once again sharing the pits with Pirates team-mate Steve Worrall.

The duo have previously been together while riding at Scunthorpe and are set to be part of Poole’s new-look SGB Championship line-up for 2020.

Nielsen told Speedway Portal: “It’s been a funny one. It’s going to be the fourth season out of eight that I have actually started off the season in the same team as him.

“We seem to be following each other around a little bit. I’m sure he will say it’s me following him and not the other way round!

“We have spent a lot of time together in the pits. We know each other quite well and I’m really looking forward to being in the same pits as him.

“He is a really nice lad, was always there to help when I needed it and hopefully he will be again this year.”

Two time British under-19 champion Nielsen comes in on a 4.40 average to join Worrall and skipper Danny King as Pirates’ announced riders to date.

“It’s incredible,” he added. “I certainly wasn’t expecting this but I am so excited and looking forward to being part of the Pirates for 2020.”
