MILDENHALL Fen Tigers fans have been given their most positive news for five months with a prospective new owner reaching an agreement with stadium boss, Dave Coventry.

Both Coventry and the potential buyer, who wishes to remain anonymous at this stage, confirmed they had verbally agreed a deal to return the Tigers to the West Row circuit next year following their summer closure.

Coventry said: “We have had very positive talks for a while and have worked out a deal. There are some final complications to sort out but things are looking good. This person is very enthusiastic and has a good approach to getting things done. The situation at Mildenhall is slightly unique as, while the rent may be higher than some other tracks, there is very little else to buy. All the equipment is here.”

The rental figure, believed to be �1,300 per meeting, appeared to be a stumbling block for interested buyers so the fact a deal has been reached is promising news. It is hoped the final negotiations, involving the British Speedway Promoters’ Association, can be completed soon so the probable new promoter can attend the annual conference of the National League on January 10.
