Head injury victim is back and raring to go

TIGERS skipper Adam Roynon is feeling better with every lap as he continues his latest comeback mission.

Roynon suffered a head injury in March when riding for Elite League Coventry and his Premier League club Leicester released him from their side.

But Sheffield moved to offer him a way back after he proved his fitness for former club Dudley in a guest appearance. He scored six in the narrow defeat at Leicester on Sunday and is relishing the prospect of facing Newcastle at Owlerton on Thursday. Said Roynon: “I’m feeling more confident with every meeting and with every lap, it’s getting easier.

“All I want to do is get through to the end of the season without any further injuries and hopefully I can score points along the way.”

Roynon has also win his place back with Elite League Coventry and he won his first outing in the derby clash with Birmingham last Friday. But he’s paid tribute to Sheffield for handing him the opportunity to race regularly again.

He said: “I’m pleased to be back with Coventry but Sheffield gave me that opportunity and I’m delighted to be doubling up. Hopefully I can do lots of meetings and enjoy my speedway. Sheffield have been good to me. I want to repay them. It’s a blow to be without Simon Stead for the rest of the season but we will continue to do our best.”
