Tonight's meeting is OFF

TONIGHT's scheduled Sky Sports Elite League fixture between the Lakeside Hammers and the Swindon Robins has been postponed after the agreement of both clubs.

TONIGHT's scheduled Sky Sports Elite League fixture between the Lakeside Hammers and the Swindon Robins has been postponed after the agreement of both clubs.

After an approach from the Swindon management, who have several riders caught up in a fixture clash with Poland, the Lakeside promoters readily agreed as the weather forecast for tomorrow is very poor and the team are clearly off form at present.

There is no suggestion that any of the Swindon riders would not have been present at the Arena-Essex Raceway on Friday.

Hammers co-promoter Jon Cook said: “After consultation with our counterparts at Swindon we are happy to put this meeting back to when neither team has fixture issues.

“Swindon have had to balance the good relations they have with their team against the need for another away win whereas for ourselves, after Monday's horror show against Poole, I think this move makes sense, especially as we have another mixed bag of weather forecast for Friday and both Jonas Davidsson and Piotr Swiderski have National Finals to prepare for on Saturday.

“I apologise to our fans for any inconvenience caused but by announcing the news early we hope to have prevented anyone from making a fruitless journey.”
