Legend to be guest of honour at Media Prima Arena
Former Teesside and Middlesbrough ‘legend’ Steve Wilcock and his wife Jacky will be guests of honour at the Media Prima Arena this Thursday when the Bears take on the Edinburgh Monarchs. Steve had a long and successful career with the club and was one of the most popular riders every to grace the old Cleveland Park Stadium.
Promoter Kevin Keay said “I’ve noticed several former Tigers/ Bears riders in attendance recently, including the heroes from the 1981 title winning side so thought it was time to ask Steve and Jacky along to sample the new atmosphere at the club. Steve was certainly one of my heroes and was a long serving stalwart on Teesside. None of us of a certain age can forget his effortless style and his ability to score big points wherever he rode”.
The Bears hope to have a full side out against the Monarchs who are currently top of the championship table. Bears Jason Garrity and Ben Barker line up at the National Speedway Stadium in Manchester tomorrow in the British final, it would be great to see a Bear at the Cardiff Grand Prix!
