In 2004–2005 Tait was a member of the Blaze Grand Slam team and scored the Grand Slam winning goal against Nottingham in the play-off finals at the NIC, one of Tait’s 29 goals that season.[citation needed]

Tait took over as Blaze Team Captain in 2007 and the team secured the League Championship and Play-off title before his move to Sheffield Steelers in 2007.[citation needed]

Tait scored 32 goals for the Sheffield Steelers in 2008.[citation needed]

Tait then moved back to the Blaze and is currently captain wearing the number 21 jersey.[citation needed] Tait departed the Blaze in May 2017.[1]
