Stars appoint new team manager

King’s Lynn are delighted to announce the appointment of David Hoggart as their new team manager.

The experienced speedway administrator will already be a familiar face for MacInnes Stars supporters as he previously spent time with the club as their centre-green presenter.

He is a former team manager and co-promoter at Sheffield, and also had a successful spell as British Speedway’s Major Events co-ordinator.

Hoggart replaces Alex Brady who left the club earlier this month.

Hoggart will take charge as Stars boss for the first time at Wolverhampton tonight, and owner Keith Chapman – who stepped in himself last week against Leicester – admits he’s pleased to have a full-time appointment in place.

Chapman said: “I’ve known David for many years, he has a good reputation in the sport and lots of knowledge to bring to the table.

“I did enjoy last Monday, but it’s definitely best for the riders that they have some form of continuity of team manager after everything that’s happened in the last few weeks.

“I was delighted David accepted the position and he’ll be going straight into the role at Wolverhampton tonight.”
