Nicolai Klindt says he’s proud to have ridden for a famous club like Sheffield.

The Danish star came in late as club bosses revamped the side to keep alive their play-off hopes and he top scored with 13+1 in Sunday’s loss at Peterborough.

Klindt, who has World Cup experience under his belt, enjoyed his spell with the club. “I thank Sheffield’s management and supporters for making me so welcome” he said. “I’m proud to have ridden for a big club like Sheffield. We all tried our best at Peterborough and didn’t do badly, it was just a shame things didn’t go to plan in the first leg and we were up against it from the start. I was happy with my performance and it was great to end the season on a high personally, but I’d have rather it helped us get through to the semis.

“It’s tough when you make the play-offs then get knocked out, but given how long it had been since Sheffield made the play-offs after with all the injuries over the season the club can be proud. The club have got plenty to build on.”

There is no meeting at Owlerton this Thursday but club bosses are considering one last meeting before the end of October.
