LAKESIDE Hammers now face the Coventry Bees this Wednesday in the Elite League Knockout Cup Final First Leg at the Arena-Essex Raceway and one rider relishing the challenge of the Club winning its first ever top League silverware is Stuart Robson, himself a former Bee, who has become a firm fans favourite with the Essex faithful in his comeback season after two years away from the Sport.

Robbo commented: "I have enjoyed ever bit of my time with the Hammers this season and the fans have been great. It's going to be the last chance for the present Hammers team to show how much we want to bring trophies to the Club and we are determined not to fail".

The first race on Wednesday will be at 8pm but early arrivals at the Raceway will be able to enjoy the sounds and sights of yesteryear as the vintage bikes of old take to the track for a four a side six heat Romford v Hackney challenge at 7.15pm.

The Hammers Co promoter Jon Cook explained: "We intend to finish the season in style with extra fireworks, 'Rider of the Year' presentation and the traditional rider farewells and it will be far more enjoyable if we are doing that after obtaining a decent lead to take up to Coventry next week."

Explaining the decision to race this important meeting on a Wednesday Cook continued: "This is the last week of stadium availability and we felt it prudent that, under those circumstances, we raced on the Wednesday with Friday as a back up in case of further weather problems. Happily it looks like that wont be the case as the forecasts we are now getting show that we should be in for a fine day on Wednesday.”
