Glasgow Tigers romped to the Premier League title in 2011 but co-promoters Alan Dick and Stewart Dickson believe it's time for new owners to take over
GLASGOW TIGERS chief Alan Dick has revealed he and co-promoter Stewart Dickson are hopeful of finding a buyer for the Premier League champions soon.
The cash-strapped side have been weighed-down by debt this season with a £30,000 track improvement bill casting doubts over the future of the Premier League champions back in May.
Although a large chunck of that figure has now been met, Dick says he and Dickson are keen to step aside and allow fresh blood to take over the running of the 84-year-old club.
Before then though Dick is determined to launch a last gasp push for a play-off place.
Ipswich Witches are up next, on Sunday, and Dick is well awe of the danger the Norfolk men possess.
He said: "With regard to the sale of the club, both Stewart and myself are very keen to allow new blood to come in and take this great club forward as perhaps we have become just a little stale.
"However, until that is done, we have to ensure that we do our utmost to finish this season off on a high.
"The challenge we put down to the team is to just give your all for the rest of the season, and be as consistent as possible, and if we can do that and gain three more away wins out of five then you just never know.
"We also have three tough home fixtures to get through, stating with Ipswich on Sunday. They are perhaps the most solid side to race in the Premier League for years.
"They do not have a rider with an average over 7 but have Morten Risager at reserve, he will undoubtedly be the strongest reserve in the league.
"This is definitely one meeting where we require the side to be solid throughout themselves and it is one again that should be very entertaining.
"I know our supporters will be a little anxious at the moment but we are convinced that our move will prove to be something that will safeguard the future of this club.
"We want it to grow and to do that it needs a different approach and hopefully we will see something very positive to come out of the next couple of months as the 2012 season comes towards its conclusion."
Glasgow - Joe Screen, Mason Campton, Josh Grajczonek, Henning Bager, James Grieves, Charles Wright, Filip Sitera
