Name: SIMON STEAD
Details:

 Home town hero Simon Stead will be hoping to put 12 months of injury hell behind him as he spearheads Sheffield’s title push in 2014.

The 31 year old began his career with the Tigers way back in 1999, bursting on the scene as a teenage sensation and going on to win three British Under 21 titles.

Over the next four years he played his part in one of the most successful spells in the clubs’ history whilst etching his name in Owlerton folklore.

Stead soon graduated to the Elite League on a full-time basis where he enjoyed spells with Belle Vue, Coventry, Wolverhampton, Peterborough, King’s Lynn and Swindon.

After a difficult 2012, the Yorkshire man announced he would make a sensational return to the Premier League with Sheffield whilst remaining in the top flight with King’s Lynn.

Stead appeared to be nearing his brilliant best with a string of fine performances early in the season before disaster struck – with a badly broken leg suffered in May promptly ending his campaign.

Following a long rehabilitation process, he will be back in Tigers colours looking to relaunch his career and bring the glory days back to Sheffield.

BRITISH CAREER

  • (2011) Glasgow
  • (2012/13/14 ) Berwick??

In September 2011, Glasgow announced the signing of the highly gifted 18-year-old Frenchman for the remainder of the season as a replacement for the injured Christian Henry.??Bellego had been spotted atAshfield a couple of weeks beforehand, as he toured a few tracks looking for a team place and the timing proved perfect because the long-tracker had just completed his other commitments and was able to link with the Tigers without any additional complications on the horizon.

??After making his club debut in the home leg of a Knock-Out Cup tie against Newcastle on 18 September, the Frenchman went on to showcase some eye-catching contributions including tallies of 8+2 and 10+2 points versus Scunthorpe and Somerset, respectively, as Glasgow secured their first League Championship in 17 years. Joined Berwick in the winter of 2011/12 amidst some controversy over ownership but the authorities ruled later that year he was a Berwick asset and has progressed upwards ever since.

Name: TAYLOR POOLE
Details:

 Aussie ace Taylor Poole will return to British shores with a point to prove after Sheffield snapped him up for the 2014 campaign to end his one year absence from UK racing.

After rising through the ranks in his homeland, Poole originally arrived in the UK towards the end of 2009, where he did enough during a brief spell with Mildenhall to be signed as a Peterborough asset.

Keen not to rush the young Australian’s development, the Panthers subsequently loaned him to Stoke where he averaged an impressive 6.45 in his debut campaign.

He continued his development following a switch to Ipswich in 2011 – upping his average to end with a creditable 6.90 figure.

The Witches soon announced the Aussie would return in 2012 although disaster struck within the first few weeks of the season as he suffered a broken arm in a crash against Rye House.

Once he recovered in July he was soon accommodated in a team re-shuffle, although his average decreased to 5.99 following a tough spell.

After his struggles, Poole was left without a team place in the UK in 2013 –but after a year away from Britain the rejuvenated youngster will return having been handed a spot by Sheffield.

A talented rider with a proven pedigree, the Tigers will be hoping the 21 year old can prove a shrewd signing as he looks to push his career to the next level.

Name: JOSH BATES
Details:

 Talented British youngster Josh Bates will look to make the most of his big opportunity with his hometown club as he lines-up at reserve for Sheffield in 2014.

The 17 year old has made rapid progress in the sport having only hoisted his leg onto a speedway bike a mere four years ago – and he has been rewarded for his work by being selected by the Robins in the second round of the inaugural Elite League reserves’ draft.

Having made great strides riding 125cc and 250cc machines, Bates began riding a full-size bike in early 2012.

Within just a few months he had earned a spot within the Mildenhall Fen Tigers side, making an instant impact with his all-action riding style and never-say-die attitude.

He eventually ended on a 5.30 average, overcoming a broken arm to help the West Row side to a clean sweep of honours at National League level.

He was quickly handed a return for 2013 where he upped his average to 7.49 whilst he also enjoyed his first spell of Premier League experience during a short spell with Scunthorpe.

After a year which saw Bates come of age, he will take a big step in his career as he pulls on the Tigers race jacket in 2014.

His undoubted natural talent and never-say-die attitude are sure to earn him many admirers at Owlerton, and he will be hoping to make an impression on the Premier League having sacrificed an Elite League place with Swindon to ride for the club.

And that impression came early in the season when he sensationally won a dramatic British Under-21 Championship Final at Wolverhampton on Tuesday April 15. He beat the much-fancied Adam Ellis, Jason Garrity and Stefan Nielsen in a race-off for the title.
