“It’s with great sadness we have decided to make the decision to call off tomorrow’s meeting against Cradley.

“We hope the early call will allow people to move their ferries and ultimately save everyone, including us, money no one wants to waste.

“While we never view any call off as wrong, we do know how much supporters miss their speedway when it’s cancelled so we are all really sorry.

“Hopefully working with Dave Johnson, we will try to include the J.A.P. Championship next week as part of our team match against Rye House”.
