Malc Simmons & Les Collins
Michael Lee was absent at the World Longtrack semi-final and his place was taken by guest Bo Petersen of the Hackney Hawks, but he proved to be a poor deputy only managing to beat Eric Monaghan. Andy Campbell lost his team place as Erik Stenlund returned to the side having missed their last 5 fixtures, but he too disappointed and only finished ahead of young Alan Mason.
The Tigers made it two consecutive League wins at Wimborne Road with Shawn Moran top-scoring despite leaving it to the last heat before taking the chequered flag in the lead. Phil White's third place ahead of Erik Stenlund in heat 13 sealed the victory, but it could have been much more comfortable had David Bargh not fallen in heat 12.
The programme notes commented on the expensive riders absent from the Sheffield team following the retirtement of both Zenon Plech and Wayne Brown, Shawn Moran's shock exit from the World Championship at the Overseas final at Belle Vue last month, and the news that Sheffield had signed Steen Mastrup from Swindon but were to loan him out to Leicester until the end of the season...
Blond bombshell John Davis finished the season on-loan to Sheffield averaging in excess of 9 points in his six meetings for us, but put off by the travelling Ray Glover failed to persuade him to join us permanently and he joined Wimbledon for 1984.
