Ipswich Witches promoter Chris Louis has spoken out after the Witches 2018 season came to a premature end – with just 13 home meetings all told taking place at Foxhall Heath this year.
Louis addresses that thread-bare fixture list, addresses what has held the Witches back from winning any silverware since 2011, and talks about what he would like to see happen to the sport in this country.
It’s an honest appraisal of how the Witches have flattered to deceive in recent seasons. It’s an honest appraisal of certain aspects of the sport that need changing.
Louis takes a look at the bikes and asks are they too powerful or too difficult to ride these days?
He tells why he would like to see every club with a ‘local hero’ back in the side.
