Sackers and Ipswich Witches link up once more

SPEEDWAY: Ipswich Witches have renewed their team sponsorship with recycling giants, Sackers.

The Great Blakenham-based company will again be the team’s main sponsor in 2012, with the continuation of a deal that was struck last winter, the Foxhall Heath side again to be known as Ipswich ‘Sackers’ Witches.

Ipswich director of speedway, Chris Louis, said: “Before last season, David and Adrian Dodds, had never experienced live speedway, so it was very exciting when they made the decision for Sackers Recycling, to back the Witches.

“For them to immediately take up their second year option is hugely encouraging, and a massive boost for the club and everyone involved.

“Along with members of their staff, they were at Foxhall each week last season supporting the team, and I know it meant a lot to the side.

Louis is hoping to announce the full Ipswich 2012 side shortly: “Team building for our 2012 push for the Premier League title has started and acquiring the two hottest properties to come out of Australia in recent years, Cameron Heeps and Rohan Tungate, is a massive boost to the club.”

Kevin Doolan will again skipper the ‘Sackers’ Witches, with Louis saying: “I don’t think the fans will be disappointed with the team we have assembled.”
