Scunthorpe Saints looking to tame high-flying speedway Tigers
Oliver Greenwood makes his long-awaited 2012 debut for the Jotun Paints Scunthorpe Saints tomorrow evening (Friday June 29), as the Saints entertain high-flying Mildenhall Fen Tigers in a National Speedway League encounter at the Eddie Wright Raceway (7.30pm).
Greenwood suffered a broken collarbone in the British Under-21 semi-final at Stoke in mid-April, just before the Saints' commenced their 2012 fixtures.
The 17-year-old made three appearances for the Saints during 2011, before being rewarded with a full-time place in this year's Saints team.
Team manager Stuart Parnaby said: "It's great that Oliver can now commence his season with the Saints.

"He's been practising at Rye House, and also had a ride after Tuesday's Scunthorpe v Ipswich Premier League match.
"I know Oliver is really looking forward to it. Whenever possible, both he and his dad have been in attendance at our meetings, while he's been out injured."
"Of course the return of Mildenhall brings back the happy memories of last season's play-off final. We clobbered them around Scunthorpe in the first leg of that. It's highly unlikely that we'll repeat that scoreline (62-33), but I feel we can win the meeting on Friday.
"This season, with our very young side, we go out with the aim of winning our home meetings, while we just want the younger riders – such as Danny Phillips and Max Clegg - to enjoy the away meetings."
Parnaby is delighted that Scunthorpe assets Stefan Nielsen and Tom Young will be sharing a reserve berth for the Premier League Scunthorpe Scorpions, following the reshuffle that has seen Nick Morris join the Scorpions. Ironically Young and Nielsen will be in opposing sides.
