New Sheffield signing Jack Holder revealed the high-speed Owlerton track worried him on his first visit, but he can’t wait to join the SGB Premiership newcomers for 2020.

The Oceania champion joins forces with triple world champion Nicki Pedersen – his team mate at Swedish side Vastervik in 2019. He also links up with 2019 Poole colleague Josh Grajczonek and Kyle Howarth.

On my first time there at Sheffield, I was a bit worried about the big dirt line it had. But I’m used to it now and I go well around there so it will be a good home track to have.

He arrives on a 7.49 average and is set to start as one of the club’s heat leaders. While he is looking forward to calling Owlerton home in 2020, Holder admits he had his concerns about the pacey circuit when first raced in the Steel City.

He said: “On my first time there at Sheffield, I was a bit worried about the big dirt line it had. But I’m used to it now and I go well around there so it will be a good home track to have.

“I know the other guys and I think it was awesome they managed to get Nicki Pedersen to the club. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Club co-promoter Damien Bates is pleased to have the former Aussie Under-21 champion on board. He said: “We are delighted to welcome Jack. He’s the perfect addition to the lads we already have in the side and he knows them all pretty well.

“I’m very excited by the way the team building is developing and we will have more news on that score later this week.”
