Nathan Greaves has admitted the gap in Sheffield Tigers’ fixtures is proving frustrating.
The talented teenager, from Chesterfield, rode against former club Cradley in last week’s challenge match at Owlerton – but there is no meeting this week.
And following the weekend cancellation of the trip to Glasgow, it leaves Greaves kicking his heels although he does have a National League outing for King’s Lynn Young Stars.
He was pleased to get some track time under his belt against the Heathens – even though the result went against Tigers.
Said Greaves, a four times U16 British champion: “It was great to get on track again after I suffered a few rain-offs lately with this awful British weather. The meeting was a good one for the fans and it was good to see so many Cradley fans there.
“I used the meeting to test a few things out and try a few different lines around the track and although we didn’t quite come away with the win I was pleased with how I rode and felt good.
“Then it was disappointing to have the meeting at Glasgow rained-off, we were all looking forward to that, now we don’t have a home meeting this week.
“I’m enjoying my time at Sheffield, it’s a good club to ride for and the management have been good with us all. I hope I can kick on from here and score a few more points between now and the end of the season and hit top form when the play-offs come around, that’s the plan.”
Tigers are represented by Simon Stead and Kyle Howarth in Friday’s prestigious Premier League Pairs Championship at Somerset.
