Bears team news update
Jason Garrity has declared himself unfit for Thursday’s fixture and has been replaced by guest Thomas Jorgensen , a winter target for the Bears.
Kevin Keay explained: “Jason was keen to test his wrist injury on Thursday but when it was pointed out that he may be required to have six rides, we agreed that it was too much of a risk to take if he wasn’t 100% fit. Thomas goes very well around the Media Prima Arena and is sure to do a good job. Danny Ayres also looks to be struggling so Liam Carr is drafted in at reserve. Liam is flying in the NL at the moment and has always gone well around Redcar.
We realise the fans will be frustrated on the amount of changes but there’s little you can do when riders are injured en mass and we need to get the fixtures completed and generate some income. It’s difficult times but I’m sure the knowledgable Bears fans will rally behind their team “
