April 19, 2018: Glasgow Tigers Limited : Vissing form gives Claus for optimism


The Dane has top-scored for the Tigers twice at home and posted a solid 8+1 at Berwick on Saturday.

Vissing had a season to forget last year, after being dropped by the Bandits just a month in.

Now Brown believes the 31-year-old is treating his move to Glasgow as his "last chance" to prove himself in the SGB Championship - and hopes he can grab it with both hands by carrying on his top performances against Edinburgh, where he rode in 2013.

Brown said: "Claus has been remarkable for us so far.

"On Saturday at Berwick, his score didn't reflect on how well he rode.

"But his form isn't a huge surprise to me. The guy is, for once, injury-free - he's had a constant injury for the past two years that has plagued him.

"He and Richie Worrall were the two fittest riders we had at our winter boot camp, and I said to everyone at the time that I thought he was going to be a good signing.

"At 31 he knows this could be his last chance at a big club and having a few years as a top rider, and he's going to give it 100%.

"He's only riding 12 matches in Denmark this year, which can only be good for us, because everything is committed to Glasgow.

"Hopefully he can keep it going against the Monarchs, which are two big meetings for us."

Points in the Borders group of the Championship Shield are at stake when Glasgow visit Armadale tomorrow before hosting their rivals on Sunday at 3pm.

The Tigers sit on four points from two meetings while the Monarchs collected a solitary point in their only match so far.

Brown has kept the same riding order for the fixtures and has been buoyed by the performance of reserve Jack Thomas in the British U21 Championship semi-final last night in Birmingham, where he finished first - beating Premiership hotshot Nathan Greaves on the way and qualifying for the final in Berwick on May 1.

April 18: Glasgow Tigers Limited : Tigers' Thomas wins British U21 semi

The 18-year-old Glasgow reserve was highly impressive in a field that included former Tiger Jack Smith and Wolves' Premiership hotshot Nathan Greaves - who he headed home in heat 13.

Thomas dropped just one point to finish on 14, and will now come up against the likes of Robert Lambert and Dan Bewley in the final at Berwick on May 1.

Smith and Greaves also qualified, along with Taylor Hampshire, Kyle Bickley, Alfie Bowtell and Joe Lawlor.

April 21: Glasgow Tigers Limited : Worrall: better to come

The 26-year-old scored 13+1 in a 48-41 win at Edinburgh to bag four big points and go five clear in their Championship Shield group.

Both sides battled tough track conditions early on, with a number of riders caught out - particularly those in the home camp.

A 5-0 in heat nine, when both Monarchs crashed out, swung the tie in Glasgow's favour and they never looked like losing from there.

Worrall's performance was his best this season with five of his team-mates getting at least one paid win.

Now the Glasgow No 1 is eyeing further improvement in the second Scottish derby of the weekend tomorrow.

He said: "The track was a little bit tricky at first, we had a few crashes.

"We both had riders struggling. Jack (Thomas) is so new to these tracks and that's the grippiest track he's ever seen. When you're at Armadale it's one of the smaller ones so it takes a lot to get your head around.

"It's a derby as well, it's Edinburgh, I don't think it matters what shield it is - they need beating.

"Sunday we want to win, but I think there are things to work on. My form round Glasgow, I want it to be better. I want to work on my form.

"We'll settle for that result, it's a win, and hopefully we'll win the other one."

April 05: Glasgow Tigers Limited : Sarj ready to prove himself against former club

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%.

March 29: Glasgow Tigers Limited : Keep Cam and carry on

Source: Company WebsiteGLASGOW'S new team manager insists he's up for the challenge of leading the Tigers into the 2018 season despite his shock at being thrust into the hotseat.

Cami Brown has taken the reins at Ashfield after long-term boss Stewart Dickson stood down from his role this week.

The call informing him about Dickson's departure wasn't one Brown was expecting - or wanting - and he had been preparing to assist the former club owner throughout the new campaign.

But after being asked to step up by club bosses, Brown now has his focus firmly on tomorrow's Scottish Cup final second leg at Edinburgh.

And he insists it's even more important now that the Tigers defend their 10-point lead and bring the trophy home.

He said: "I'm really looking forward to the challenge. We've got a good backroom team in place and a chain of people to help at all levels.

"Nothing has really changed, we're still going with the same plan.

"But the club comes first and that's the most important thing for me. I want the club to have the success it deserves, and the fans deserve.

"I completely understand some fans' sadness at seeing Stewart go but they've got to get behind the team. It's not about me, it's about the club and the team.

"The boys are all committed.

Cami Brown will now step into the manager role, having been brought in as Dickson's assistant during the winter, supported by co-promoter Michael Max.

A spokesman for the Tigers said: "The club would like to thank Stewart for his service and wish him well for the future."

Glasgow head to Edinburgh on Friday to defend a 10-point lead in the Scottish Cup, when Brown will take on his first meeting in his new role.

March 26: Glasgow Tigers Limited : Harris in fastest race for baby

The Allied Vehicles Tigers' talisman got the call on Friday late afternoon that his wife Emma-Louise had gone into labour a month early after a troublesome pregnancy.

Former Grand Prix winner Harris, 35, then had to pull-out of Glasgow's opening clash with Edinburgh before a torrid dash back to the midlands in a van losing power.

He revealed: "It's a big relief that everything is OK and Amara-Mae was born at 3am. But it was a stressful day all round.

"It's been a hard pregnancy for the missus. The baby tried to be born at 27 weeks but thankfully managed to hold on for another 10 weeks, it's been stressful to say the least. We've been to hell and back really.

"Emma-Louise had hospital check-ups twice a week. She went in on Thursday while I was at the Glasgow press day and then called to say they want another check on Friday.

"Then late afternoon on Friday, with us due to race that night, I got a call saying she was in labour. So it was jump in the van and get back to the midlands as soon as possible

"However I had further problems with the van losing power. It was OK cruising at 70mph but lost all power going up hills. So I was panicking like I wasn't going to make it, shouting at the van going up hills!

"It was a bit like an American Hollywood movie scene but luckily it had a happy ending too with Amara-Mae born a few hours after I got back."

Harris missed Glasgow's narrow Scottish Cup first leg 10-point win over Edinburgh at Ashfield on Friday night - but has ditched any plans for a longer paternity leave to race at Armadale in the return this Friday.

He added: "I heard rumours that Edinburgh hoped I would take a fortnight off with paternity leave, no chance.
