Patrick Hougaard: Has signed for Leicester
Leicester Lions have continued their team building ahead of their inaugural season in the Elite League by signing Danish international Patrick Hougaard.
The former Belle Vue and Peterborough man, who won the inaugural Pride of the Midlands event at the East Midlands venue in 2011, joins fellow countryman Mads Korneliussen and Australian Jason Doyle in the Lions side for the new season.
Promoter David Hemsley said: "We have kept a watchful eye on Patrick for some time now and I am pleased that talks fell into place and he will be riding for Leicester next season.
"There are no half measures with Patrick who has first class equipment and is very professional in his approach, organisation and set-up. I feel sure that Patrick will build upon the season just ended and we look forward to working with him next year."
