Edinburgh Monarchs today confirmed that Aussie star Sam Masters has agreed terms for a third spell at Armadale next season, leaving the Capital speedway champions with just three spaces to fill to complete their new-look squad.

Speculation had been rife that Masters might not be back, but he said: “I want to ride at Edinburgh because I have always enjoyed it there and I’m happy to do another year with them.”

Asked about possibly becoming Monarchs permanent No.1 following the departure of skipper Craig Cook, Masters replied: “I’m not concerned about being No.1. It did not worry me before, it was injuries which held me back. I was out for seven weeks with a broken hand and that proved a struggle at the time.

“Since I got back home I have had a few weeks off. I have spent some time with Craig, who has been staying with me. Now I’m trying to get fit again.”

Masters also confirmed he will double-up with Wolverhampton Wolves in the Elite League in 2016, but Monarchs will have priority on his services.
