2017 Fixtures Released

Words: Henry Chard

The fixtures for the 2017 SGB Championship season have been released as the countdown to the new season begins to gather pace. The ‘Tru7.com’ Witches begin the campaign with a Saturday night clash with Sheffield at Foxhall in the Championship before attentions turn to the Knockout Cup tie with Berwick days later.

Witches fans will look forward to a feast of speedway over the Easter weekend as neighbours Peterborough Panthers visit Foxhall on the Saturday before the Witches head to the East of England Showground on the Sunday.

Fans will have a chance to meet the 2017 team before the season starts on 22nd March (7pm) at the traditional ‘Meet the Riders’ event at Foxhall Community Centre. Tickets are £5.00 and will be available at the Ipswich Speedway Supporters Club quiz nights on 8th February and 8th March at Kesgrave Social Club and will also be available on the ISSC website soon.

Promoter Chris Louis revealed the club had hoped to begin the new season with a challenge against Premiership side King’s Lynn but plans had to be shelved as the Norfolk side’s riders would not be in the country early enough.

Regarding fixture clashes with riders ‘doubling up’ in England, we can confirm that we have priority for Danny King and Rory Schlein, should the Australian ride in the Premiership this season. At the time of writing there are four ‘clashes’ for Kyle Newman.

You can find all of the 2017 fixtures below with home fixtures in bold. C1 and C2 denotes Championship meetings.
