Rebels Return To The Heath On Thursday

The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches welcome the 'Cases' Somerset Rebels to Foxhall on Thursday night (24th July) for their third visit of the season, this time for a Premier League fixture. Ipswich won both of the previous two encounters, the last one by a staggering forty points, in a Knock Out Cup tie, but they know that with valuable league points & a play-off place at stake the Rebels will almost certainly provide much stronger opposition in this meeting.

Both sides field their normal 1-7 with Gino Manzares riding through the pain barrier for Ipswich after a couple of hard falls in Round 1 of the World U21 Championship at Lonigo last Saturday (July 19th).

'Schools Out' - with the start of the summer holidays now upon us Ipswich Speedway are pleased to announce their normal 'Kids Go Free' (anyone under 16) starts this week and will include all home meetings up to & including Thursday 4th September.

Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund - Please note Ipswich Speedway Supporters Club will be holding their annual collection for this very worthy cause with riders helping out with collecting during the interval (weather & mechanical issues permitting) plus there will be buckets on the exit gates.

This meeting is sponsored by: Keith Martin Group

Expected team lineups:

Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches
Adam Ellis 4.48, Cameron Heeps 4.78, Gino Manzares 5.61, Morten Risager 7.08, Richie Worrall 7.40, Ritchie Hawkins (C) 4.88, Rohan Tungate 6.55, Team Manager: Brian Messenger

'Cases' Somerset Rebels
Brady Kurtz 6.61, Charles Wright 6.39, Nick Morris 8.28, Oliver Allen © 7.80, Paul Starke 4.64, Pontus Aspgren 7.41, Todd Kurtz 5.50, Team Manager: Garry May

 

Disappointing Draw For Witches

The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches hopes of finishing in the top six of the Premier League table were dealt a blow on Thursday night when they were held to a draw by Glasgow, a team that had previously failed to score a single league point away from home this season. Seven nights ago Ipswich looked in command from the start and never looked like losing against Plymouth whereas for most of this week’s meeting they didn’t look capable of winning it.

Number one Richie Worrall made a successful return from injury and was joint top scorer for Ipswich with Morten Risager on 11+1 with skipper Ritchie Hawkins supporting them well on 8+1. Hawkins was also nominated as 'Man of the Meeting' by sponsors Volvo Truck & Bus.  For the Scottish side Kevin Wolbert scored eleven with their two impressive reserves, Stefan Nielsen & Kasper Lykke Nielsen scoring 8+2 & 8 respectively.
