PLYMOUTH are set to be accepted into Premier League Speedway for the 2011 season.

The Devils have applied to make the switch from the National League and, following King’s Lynn’s move into the top flight, the Devon club will replace them subject to terms and conditions.

British Speedway Promoters’ Association Chairman Alex Harkess said: “With King’s Lynn moving up it created a vacancy for one more Premier League team and Plymouth’s application was next on the table.

“We expect them to be racing in the Premier League next season subject to an inspection of the track and facilities at the St Boniface Arena.”
