BEES TO VISIT WIMBORNE ROAD

12th March 2017

Poole Pirates will ride against a Coventry team in 2017 despite the withdrawal of the famous Midland's club from the newly branded SGB Premiership.

After a winter of much anguish for the Coventry Bees, who had hoped to temporary race at Leicester whilst rectification work would have been undergone at their regular home in Brandon the news last month that they would have to put their licence on ice came as a major blow to speedway fans up and down the country, but Poole will host a challenge meeting against Coventry on Wednesday 19th April.

Explaining the arrangement Poole chief Matt Ford said, "Over the last 10 years or so Coventry have been one of our biggest rivals and there is no doubt that they are one of British Speedway's legendary clubs. There is no way I want to see such a big club be totally lost to our sport and, along with a number of other Premiership clubs, we will be doing our best to keep the name of this speedway giant alive.

"We are honouring the original date in our fixture list of Coventry coming to us on 19th April and with just one change they will field the team they had initially declared when intending to race on in the Premiership. That change will see Chris Harris represent the Bees in place of Kenneth Bjerre and as "Bomber" has been a Bees regular in recent times then his inclusion seems most appropriate."
