Sam Masters already has a unique place in Monarchs’ history as the only rider to have won the Premier League, KO Cup, Premier Trophy, Fours and Pairs during the 2014-2017 period.
He also can say that he, in company with Craig Cook, recorded the league winning 5-1 in the Playoffs two seasons running, something which is very unlikely to be repeated.
So the news that Sam is back with Monarchs from July 2019 will be rousingly received by supporters. It’s something Sam has wanted for some time, and we have certainly been missing his kind of inspiration so far this season.
He said “It’s about time I got back to Edinburgh. I didn’t really think it would happen though, it was so difficult for Edinburgh to organise.
“Leaving the club became a big regret. I had to try it to see what I could do overseas but I didn’t realise it was going to be so hard to get back in. I wouldn’t have left if I had known what it was going to be like. I can’t wait to get started.
“I never wanted to ride for anyone else in the Championship. It gives us a good top four and we’ll all be going for it - don’t worry about that.”
Sam of course is riding for Wolverhampton in the Premiership and that means he has a team place with his two favourite UK clubs.
