IN-FORM Josh Grajczonek revealed he had been “fed up” with speedway during a tough time last season but insisted: “That’s in the past now.”

The Pirates skipper looked blisteringly quick on his way to 13 paid 14 in Pirates’ 46-44 win at Belle Vue on Monday.

And having now come into some sublime form, the Townsville-born charger is eager to help the Dorset club build momentum.

He told BT Sport: “Last year I wasn’t in a good position. I was a bit fed up with the sport. Things weren’t going right and I was beating myself up a fair bit.

“I was pretty much at my wits’ end with it all. I remember talking to Matt (Ford) at the end of last year and said ‘if you are going to make changes, let me know because I’ll make arrangements to go back home’.

“But that’s in the past now.

“This year has started off pretty well and it seems to just be going and going. We’ve got a good team, we are all getting along.

“We have all gelled from the start. We have been hit-and-miss on the road and have lost a few at home but we are starting to hit a bit of form now, hopefully we keep it going.”

Pirates host King’s Lynn in the SGB Premiership on Thursday (7.30pm).
