Rider Order Reshuffle for Monarchs Test

The “Buildbase” Tigers team manager Stewart Dickson is shuffling the pack in order to find a solution to what has been a frustrating couple of weeks. The Tigers lost out in their last two home fixtures against Kings Lynn and Birmingham, and Dickson feels that some action is required to arrest the slide:

“We had a long chat after the meeting with Birmingham last week and we have addressed quite a number of issues. The track is something we feel we must make work to our advantage a little more so we have been in discussion about that. I have also decided to alter the riding order too and see if that helps. I feel that the pairings have perhaps not been as effective as I would have liked so with Lee coming into the main body of the team anyway, I felt that this is a good time to alter things and it is an ideal meeting to do it. This is not set in stone either and perhaps may still require some fine tuning at a later date.

We need every one of the team to up their game just a little and if we do that then I am convinced that we can turn the tables and record a win. However we are facing perhaps the form team of the Premier League and I know that it is sure to be a very tough ask for the boys. A win though could prove to be a major point in our season and hopefully we have enough about us to do just that.”


GLASGOW: Trent Leverington, Robert Ksiezak, Shane Parker, Lee Dicken, Ross Brady, Josh Grajczonek, Mitchell Davey.

EDINBURGH: Derek Sneddon, Ryan Fisher, William Lawson, Thomas H Jonasson, Matthew Wethers, Andrew Tully, Aaron Summers.


The Tigers have had a disappointing week with defeats at Workington 60-32 and then at home to Birmingham in the first leg of the KO Cup by 52-40. The second leg of the KO Cup is to be raced on Wednesday 23rd April at Perry Bar. Ross Brady was the top scorer at Workington with 7+1 while Shane Parker topped the polls against Birmingham with 16. This Sunday marks the final Premier Trophy fixture of the season.

The Monarchs are almost certain to qualify for the semi finals of the Premier Trophy. The Tigers will prevent them qualifying but only if they can record a 42 point victory or more on Sunday to allow the Workington Comets to qualify instead.

The Tigers first away meeting in the League at Newcastle on the 5th May has seen its start time moved back to 7.00pm due to a live SKY football clash at St James Park.

Next Sunday will see the Tigers take on Newcastle in the Premier League. The Diamonds are having a poor run of form too as they look to cover for the absent George Stancl. It is not known whether the former Tiger will return for the home and away fixtures over the bank holiday weekend.

Scottish Speedway is appraoching its 80th Birthday and the Tigers management are planning a special photo opportunity to commemorate this occasion. More details will be forwarded during the week.

Glasgow Speedway are delighted to announce a hotel partnership with the Jurys City Inn in Glasgow, more details will appear in future bulletins. The club would like to thank Paul Bray for his support in this partnership.
