Mudgway and Terry the Track return
Jade Mudgway is to return as Team Manager for Redcar Bears in 2018. Mudgway took over as team boss for the Bears towards the end of the 2018 season and was instrumental in lifting the team from the basement position of the SGB Championship League.
Mudgway made it very clear to Promoter Jitendra Duffill that he was very keen to continue in his role as Team Manager in 2019 and his enthusiasm and passion for the role made him popular with both riders and club supporters.
Promoter Duffill added, “Jade did an excellent job for us this year and I had absolutely no hesitation in reinstalling him as team boss for next year. His enthusiasm is infectious and I have worked very closely with him during team building to ensure that he and our supporters have a team they can be proud of. I have no doubt he will do a brilliant job for us.”
Bears fans will also be pleased to hear that track curator Terry Chrabaszcz , known as ‘Terry the Track’, has agreed to return as track curator at the Media Prima Arena next year. The race surface at the MPA has received praise from riders, SCB referees and supporters over the last 2 years and the quality of the racing during this time has been some of the best seen at Redcar. This was officially recognised in 2017 when Redcar were awarded the trophy for ‘Championship Track Of The Year’. Duffill added, “I’m excited to have Terry back on board. He is an important part of our team and loves it here. Everything is gradually falling into place as we prepare for the 2019 season.”
Bears fans who plan to attend the Bears Xmas Party on 14th December are urged to book tickets ASAP as well over half of them have already been sold. The Bears plan to unveil their septet for the new season on the night.
