SCOTT Nicholls will race for the Lakeside Hammers this evening in their important home Play Off match against Poole at the Arena Essex Raceway after the Hammers captain, Davey Watt, was rushed into hospital in the early hours of this morning with complications to his kidney problems.

The Hammers Co Promoter Jon Cook commented: “We wish Watty all the very best and we will update fans tonight. Scott is a first class replacement and this added misfortune only makes us more determined to rise to the occasion this evening.”
