Sarj ready to prove himself against former club

GLASGOW ace James Sarjeant says he’s ready to prove himself against former club Workington as the Tigers launch their first 2018 bid for silverware.

The Ashfield reserve hopes to star on home shale tomorrow (Friday) before returning to Cumbria on Saturday for the first time since his ill-fated spell there last year.

The Yorkshireman will be bidding to claim his first race win of the season – and believes a big couple of performances this weekend in the Championship Shield would be the perfect way to kick-start his campaign.

He said: “I had a bit of a rubbish meeting in the first match against Edinburgh. I tried a few different things and I had a lot go wrong – not just with me but with the bikes as well.

“I was glad to get it out the way but I was a bit disappointed. I’ll just have to wait till the next one to correct it all.

“I didn’t like the track at Workington last year so it’ll be interesting this week. I’ll try to score my points and keep my head down.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what introduction I get! Last season was a write-off – I didn’t feel I was treated very well – so I’d love to go down and score as many points as I can against them.

“Hopefully we can get a good lead built up against them tomorrow and I think we can even win at Workington on Saturday.

“If the whole team can get firing I think we’ll be hard to stop.”

Sarj has also lent his backing to new Tigers boss Cami Brown after the departure of Stewart Dickson last week.

He said: “Cami will step up to the plate and I know he’ll give it 110%. He’s Tigers through and through.

“We’ve just got to get on with it. I know Cami will be there for us and we know what we’ve got to do anyway – get those wins and make the play-offs.

Glasgow are in a borders group of the Championship Shield with Edinburgh, Berwick and Workington, with each team racing each other once at home and once away before the winners of the three sections qualify for the semi-finals along with the best runner-up.
