Speedway: Tiger Proctor finally ‘on the right track’

Sheffield star Ty Proctor believes things are moving in the right direction as he looks to hit top form.

The Aussie ace has experienced a difficult start to life at Owlerton having been snapped up by the Tigers back in May.

Proctor has so far failed to meet high expectations during a tough spell – and he admits he has been ‘bitterly disappointed’ with his form.

But he put in his best performance for the club to date against Berwick last Thursday, scoring a hard-fought eight points and helping his side snatch a draw in a tense heat 15 decider.

Said Proctor: “Obviously I haven’t lived up to the hype and expectation that was placed upon me when I signed and that I place upon myself anyway.

“Nobody is more disappointed with how I’ve performed so far than me – I’ve been bitterly disappointed with how I’ve been riding for Sheffield but it hasn’t been through a lack of trying.

“I’m putting in a lot of effort at the track and away from the track to try and make sure I start riding to the best of my ability and reaching the performance levels I know I’m capable of.

“I had a really good meeting on Thursday where I felt I was riding really good lines and was a lot more comfortable on the track. I just need to sort my gating out and then I’m confident I should be fine.

“I want to be a success here at Sheffield and I’m enjoying riding for the club – I’ve just got to knuckle down and get through this tough patch.”
