Ipswich ‘Sackers’ Witches welcome the Rye House ‘Silver Ski’ Rockets to Foxhall on Thursday night (March 27) for a League Cup fixture.
This will be the first team meeting for the home team but the visitors have already ridden in earnest and taken a two point away victory over Premier League newcomers Peterborough last week.
Meetings between Ipswich & Rye House have always been fiercely competitive and this encounter promises to be no exception. The Hoddesdon side have only retained two riders from 2013 with British International, Edward Kennett coming in as their new number one. He is joined by Mathieu Tressarieu who was a firm favourite at Foxhall when riding as a Witch two years ago, Luke Bowen, Jason Garrity, Steve Boxall & Simon Lambert. Jason Bunyan will be missing as he is preparing for the New Zealand GP and Rider Replacement will be used to cover his rides.
The Ipswich side have only changed two riders from their 2014 line-up and will be lead by their new number one, Richie Worrall who has already performed well in the meetings he has completed so far this season. After blowing away some cobwebs on Saturday night the rest of the Witches septet are now raring to go and they are very keen to make their mark and start accumulating as many League Cup points as possible to ensure progression to the next stage.
