Glasgow Tigers return to SGB Championship action at the Peugeot Ashfield stadium this weekend for what promises to be an exciting derby match against their arch rivals, the Edinburgh Monarchs. Tapes-up is at 7pm and tickets are available.
Last Sunday Glasgow Tigers beat the Workington Comets 46-44 after a thrilling Heat 13 which saw Aaron Summers and Craig Cook battle hard for the victory. Tigers Captain Summers taking the win in what was dubbed by Tigers manager Stewart Dickson ‘one of the most exciting races ever seen at Ashfield’. The final heat then saw Richie Worrall and Aaron Summers finish second and third ahead of the second Comets rider, overtaking him on the last lap and ensuring a narrow victory for the Glasgow side. The lead riders fared well against their opposition counterparts, although the Tigers will be looking for their tail riders to up their performance against a strong Monarchs side in tonight’s encouter.
The Edinburgh Monarchs are also in excellent form, going top of the table last weekend after their 52-40 victory over the Redcar Bears, a result that made it 5 wins out of 5 for the Edinburgh side. Racing between the Glasgow and Edinburgh teams is always exciting to watch, and the action this evening promises to be no different. The Tigers are expecting a big crowd for this eagerly anticipated derby fixture and fans are advised to go early to get the best area to watch the action.
Stand by for the next instalment of Glasgow Tigers v Edinburgh Monarchs rivalry. Doors open at 5pm at what is sure to be a packed crowd at Peugeot Ashfield Stadium come the start of Heat 1.
