Frustrating time for Sheffield Speedway ace

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.
