Bears make team change
The Redcar Ecco Finishing Supplies Bears, after yesterday’s terrible result at Newcastle ,have parted company with Dutchman Theo Pijper with his replacement about to be confirmed pending B.S.P.A. approval. Co-Promoter Kevin Keay said:
The team has simply not performed consistently enough throughout and we need to strengthen as quickly as possible. Unfortunately for Theo he has become a victim of the numbers game as we need to bring in a higher averaged rider to improve the top end of the team to give Ben Barker some support. Theo has done nothing wrong, he has been consistent in his performances and a pleasure to deal with but we need to act now . He had put a lot of time and effort into his equipment but was not getting the reward it deserved and a section of the fans were being disrespectful towards him which is disappointing so it’s time to move on. The top five haven’t performed as they should putting unnecessary pressure elsewhere so team changes are required and we may make other changes if the option becomes available. I personally would like to thank Theo for his effort and commitment to the club and sincerely hope he gets fixed up elsewhere very soon.
The Bears hope to have the required approval to put the new signing in the team for this week’s fixtures against Sheffield Tigers in the K.O.Cup with Redcar hosting Sheffield this FRIDAY 1st of June.
