The story

The ‘Tru Plant’ Witches foursome of Rory Schlein, Cameron Heeps, Nico Covatti and Danyon Hume head to Redcar on Sunday for the Championship Fours.

It’s a strong line-up for the Suffolk club although Danny King misses out due to injury and the Witches will have no reserve.

It’s a new venue for the Fours as it moves away from Peterborough to Redcar in 2018 after the Panthers won last year’s event at the East of England Arena and Events Centre.

The Witches won the event back in 2011 at Leicester as Kevin Doolan, Taylor Poole, Mat Tresarrieu, Lasse Bjerre and Morten Risager lifted the trophy and the current crop will be looking to add to the Witches’ trophy cabinet.

Team to watch

The Lakeside Hammers have made a strong start to the 2018 Championship campaign and the foursome of Lawson, Morris, Ellis and Newman is one of the strongest on paper. The Hammers have already beaten Redcar this season away from home in convincing fashion with all four riders scoring well that night and must be one of the teams to beat on Sunday.

The outsiders

The Peterborough Panthers have surprised many with their start to the Championship campaign as they sit on top of the table and last year’s Fours winners will be keen to retain their title. Fresh from a win at Redcar last week, Palm Toft, Wilson- Dean and Nicholls will be confident heading into Sunday’s event.

What happened last year?

The ‘’ Witches reached the final of the Championship Fours at Peterborough but could not make an impact at the last hurdle, finishing fourth as the hosts took victory.

Ipswich eased through to the final after a dominant semi-final performance saw them top the second semi-final by five points. After such a promising start to the afternoon the Witches could not replicate their earlier form in the final and finished a distant fourth.
