Redcar Bears team boss Brian Havelock has spoken of his satisfaction at the quality of the club's 2011 roster ahead of the Premier League season.
Bears finished bottom of the table last season, but only team captain Gary Havelock remains from that line-up.
"I am pleased by the overall performances of the new-look Bears so far," boss Havelock said.
Jason Lyons, Peter Juul, Matej Kus, Aaron Summers, Adam Roynon and Robert Branford are the newcomers.
Havelock continued: "Jason Lyons is a smooth points gatherer while Aaron Summers' pre-season statement that he is after the number one jacket is no idle boast.
"Havelock has hit the ground running while Peter Juul has already got that vital first heat win of the season under his belt.
"The reserves are picking up points and we now look forward to welcoming Matej Kus as the final part of the jigsaw."
