Bears v Newcastle preview – Sunday 20th October
Redcar Agilia Bears travel up the A19 on Sunday to face Newcastle in the second leg of the KO Cup Final (6:30pm start).
It is another in a series of massive meetings in October for the Bears, as they look to secure their first trophy since speedway returned to Teesside in 2006.
The Bears will travel up with a 12 point lead from the first leg, after beating Newcastle 51-39 at the Media Prima Arena.
With the meeting being re-arranged after last Sundays postponement Adam Ellis, the original choice of guest for Michael Palm Toft, is no longer available. However, the Bears have secured the services of ex-Newcastle man Lewis Kerr who will guest in his place.
Charles Wright, Ulrich Ostergaard, Max Clegg and Danny Phillips will all also rides in this meeting despite the clashes with the Wolves v Peterborough meeting and National League Riders Championships. The Diamonds do run rider replacement in place of the injured Thomas Jorgensen.
It promises to be an exciting night, and a night where the Bears could lift the trophy! We hope to see as many of you make the trip up to Newcastle as possible and recreate the superb atmosphere seen at Leicester last week.
Redcar: Charles Wright, Kasper Andersen, Lewis Kerr, Jordan Stewart, Erik Riss, Tom Woolley, Nathan Greaves
