LAKESIDE Hammers aim to banish this close season’s period of uncertainty within the sport, now that the countdown to the new season well and truly upon us, with the news that the Club will reveal their 2011 squad in a special addition of their popular internet magazine, Hammerzine, which will be released next Wednesday exclusively on the Club’s website at lakesidehammers.com

The Club will start its season at home to the Swindon Robins on Friday 25th March, with the return leg at the Robins Abbey Stadium Blunsdon two days later, before entering into their fifth season of racing under the stewardship of team owner Stuart Douglas and co-Promoter Jon Cook.

“We appreciate this has been a hard, taxing winter for Hammers fans, both within the sport and with the economy in general, but we intend to bring these fans a full, and very exciting, season of excellent Speedway to help forget those woes”’ said Douglas.

“That starts with the announcement of this year’s line up. Jon has been hard at work - aided by Club Captain Lee Richardson - and I feel this new line up will have the harder edge to take us onto success in this year’s Elite League. I really feel the Hammers supporters will be thrilled that their favourite riders are back, and I am sure they will be equally excited by the new additions to the team who we feel will be both popular and highly competitive. Maybe it’s time now to stop talking and start racing”.
