Glasgow Tigers have secured a Danish double with Sam Jensen (pictured right) returning for his first full season and vastly-experienced Ulrich Ostergaard joining Glasgow for the first time

The Scandinavians join Englishman Craig Cook, Americans Ricky Wells and Broc Nicol, and Australia’s Connor Bailey in the 2020 line-up leaving only one rider to be announced.

Jensen, aged 22, said: “I’ve heard other riders talking about Glasgow being one of the most professional clubs in the UK. I also see the supporters and how far they travel to support us, so that means a lot.”

Ostergaard, now 38, has ridden with ten teams and won several trophies with Peterborough Panthers.

He was the League Riders’ champion in 2015, heading home new team-mates Wells and Cook to take that title.

He said: “It’s really positive. Glasgow are a really big club. They’ve got a big aim about the play-offs and it’s really professional so, for Glasgow to want me, is a big step for me and it’s something I’m really happy about.

“I can’t wait until 2020 to get started and see how it looks up there. I love the track. It’s always been a good away track for me.”
