A shining Star returns to King's Lynn!

Fan favourite Niels-Kristian Iversen makes his long awaited comeback at the town's speedway team.

The four-time World Cup winner is the one all the supporters have been asking for.

But Niels has done more than just make their dreams come true with this return.

He also highly recommended a future Star in the making in the very talented Kasper Andersen.

The Danish duo complete the magnificent seven and will join the likes of Robert Lambert, Thomas Jorgensen, Lewis Rose, Ty Proctor and Lewis Kerr.

Stars co-promoter Dale Allitt says both will make a big impact:

"To have these two riding for King's Lynn in 2018 is a huge plus and it rounds off what we feel is a strong team who have the capability to push for the play-offs.

"Sealing a return for Niels was always a priority for us this year because last season we missed him and I think he too missed us.

"Niels is an out-and-out No.1 who is a consistent, reliable, big point's scorer and to have him coming home is great for everyone, and we can't wait to have him back in the team.

"He wants to come back to England and perform how he always has.

"Niels also put a strong recommendation in for Kasper to join King's Lynn as did former fans' favourite Tom P Madsen who worked with him over in Denmark last season.

"He has performed well in the last year and he scored a paid maximum in his final meeting for Esbjerg so the talent is certainly there.

"Kasper is very keen to do well in his first season in England as a new asset of the club and having the support of fellow Danes in Niels and Thomas Jorgensen will help him a lot we feel.

"There's no pressure on him, we just want him to settle as soon as he possibly can and once that's happened we believe he can form a very dominant reserve partnership with Lewis Kerr."
