SHEFFIELD racer Lewis Kerr feels the club's late finish in 2022 could benefit him personally in 2023.

The 32-year-old was snapped up by the Tru Plant Tigers with just a couple months of the season remaining last term following his release from King's Lynn.

His eye-catching form helped the Owlerton outfit to a place in the Grand Final as well as securing the Premiership League Cup.

A fixture backlog meant that that glory eventually came in November - and Kerr admits he's noticed a difference himself since stepping up his preparations for the forthcoming campaign.

"For me it feels like it's been a short winter," he said.

"I think because we raced so late into early November it feels that way maybe, but for me that's not a bad thing.

"Every time I get on the bike it feels like I haven't been off it that long and that's good.

"I'm very keen to carry on where I left off for Sheffield and I don't see any reason why I can't.

"My equipment is very good again, I've got good sponsors around me and everything that's in place is very good so I really can't wait to get started."

Kerr and his Tru Plant Tigers' teammates will be put through their paces in an on-track session at Owlerton on Thursday, March 16 (6pm) with the season opener one week later (Thursday, March 23, 7.30) in the Steel City against War of the Roses rivals Belle Vue.
