Bank Holiday Washout

Bank Holiday Washout

In typical British summertime style only one fixture survived on yesterdays Bank Holiday fixtures. No less than seven fixtures had to be postponed because of the bad weather, only Newcastle survived.

It means a fixture headache for a lot of clubs, a few being forced to run double-headers to enable them to complete their fixtures before the cut-off dates.

Coventry and Leicester were quick to re-arrange their fixtures for this Sunday (31/8/14). The Bees will faces the Lions at 14.30 at Brandon before travelling to the Jordan Road Surfacing Stadium for a 19.30 start. Coventry have also been forced to bring forward their fixture with Kings Lynn, they will now face the Stars 24 hours earlier than originally planned.

Wolverhampton and Eastbourne quickly agreed a re-staging date for their fixture, the Wolves will now take on the Eagles on Monday the 8th of September. The Wolves have also agreed to push back their fixture at Swindon by a week in order for the Robins to complete their fixture against play-off rivals Lakeside.

Swindon will now race Lakeside at the Abbey Stadium this Thursday (28/8/14) before taking on Wolverhampton. The Wolves will now face the Robins on Thursday September the 4th.

 

Newcastle 59-34 Glasgow

Newcastle 59-34 Glasgow

Newcastle made up for Sunday’s defeat at Ashfield by beating Glasgow 59-34 at Brough Park last night. Diamonds hero Lewis Kerr proved to be the Newcastle man of the match in the big win, weighing in with a paid 15 point maximum.

Kerr contributed massively to what was an easy win for Newcastle, the north-east side recorded no less than six 5-1′s against a poor Tigers side who headed to Brough Park on the back of two good wins against Workington at Derwent Park on Friday and Newcastle on Sunday.

Newcastle started the meeting without number two Lewis Rose who was still feeling the effects of a knee injury suffered at Glasow on Sunday. Reserve Simon Nielsen was also a doubt for the meeting but took his place in the line-up, although he wasn’t to finish the meeting.

Nielsen took a tumble in heat seven and clearly the after effects of his spill on Sunday were taking it’s toll and he had to be withdrawn. The remaining five Diamonds put on a fantastic show and overpowered their Scottish rivals to win very convincingly.

Glasgow will be hugely disappointed they couldn’t take advantage of the Diamonds injury troubles and would have hoped to come away from the meeting with at least a point to keep up their outside challenge of a play-off finish. Newcastle however have only strengthened their position and will hope other┬áresults this week can go in their favour.

A big result for Newcastle, one to ponder for the Tigers.

Kurtz Faces Spell Out

Kurtz Faces Spell Out

17 year-old Brady Kurtz faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after breaking his upper arm in Fridays clash between Somerset and Ipswich. The young racer, who has been outstanding in his first full season in British Speedway, had been previously unbeaten in the meeting at the Oak Tree Arena before the heat 15 spill.

Kurtz had been battling with Ipswich number one Richie Worrall when the incident happened and he now faces a race against time to be fit for the play-offs starting.

Somerset promoter Debbie Hancock is hopeful Kurtz can return before the end of the season, Hancock said, “Brady has sustained a break to his arm between the shoulder and elbow, and has had the arm set in plaster.

“He id due to have further x-rays in the next few days at hospital in Swindon to see how things are progressing. At this stage it is too early to say for definite how long he will be out of action for, but initial estimates are that it could be anything up to six weeks.”

The Rebels have been in sensational form and now sit seven points clear of Edinburgh at the top of the Premier League table. Despite being 10-points down at Peterborough on Sunday the Rebels still managed to pick up four points at the East of England Showground, beating the Panthers 43-50.

Team manager Garry May couldn’t hide his delight at his teams fight back and had this to say after the meeting, he said, “This was a truly great performance by all the boys. The boys dug deep today to not only overcome the loss of Brady but fight-back from being 10 points down after just three heats.”
