Meeting Sponsor Neil Watson Managing Director of Renaissance Property Management Ltd said “The future of speedway in this country relies on new talent coming through the ranks of National League racing, and venues such as West Row are an integral part of that structure, I have affection for Mildenhall Speedway going back to my time as Club Chairman, and when I was asked to support the Club and the 2009 Shareholders Trophy I was pleased to agree.”
He also added “The meeting brings the curtain down on another successful season for the Fen Tigers, and I've no doubt you wish the season was just starting, rather than ending, after some of your recent results!”
Helping out with some of the costs to stage the meeting are group of ex shareholders of the club, their spokesperson Phil Kirk said “A small group of ex-shareholders and supporters had put together a sponsorship package for Dakota North in July when it looked likely that he would be joining us. Unfortunately injury curtailed that possibility, so when Blayne (Scroggins) suggested running an Individual meeting to finish the season, everyone was only too pleased to transfer the money into this event. Since then more supporters have come on board and I have to say yet again the generosity of Mildenhall supporters has been something to behold.
Hopefully it will be a great day, and a fitting reward for all the hours Blayne has put into setting up this meeting, and the promotion this season as a whole.”
Indeed Scroggins the Assistant Team Manager and Academy League boss has been working hard on this meeting for the past few weeks when the date was confirmed burning the midnight oil so to speak to give the supporters a memorable event end to the 2009 campaign and said “I am re pleased to be able bring back the shareholders trophy for what is the final meeting of 2009 and all though we lost some riders from the original line up due to re arranged fixtures and I still think it's a great line up and I can see some great battles with messes Evans,Lambert,Priest,Makinen, Mallet and of course lets not forget Mildenhall's own Wizard of Oz the exciting Taylor Poole.”
The club's promotion are also delighted to confirm that the admission prices will remain the same as normal and Fen Tigers season tickets are valid for this bumper meeting.
Club Spokesman Steve Dolby said” Hopefully the weather will be kind to us, we see this meeting as a fitting reward to all who have made this season so enjoyable but especially to our Chairman Ray Mascall and his wife Jean who have very much kept the Fen Tigers alive this season at West Row Fen and we are all looking forward to 2010.”
