Comets Go Head to Double Head with Edinburgh Monarchs
Photo by Dave PayneTue 17 Sep 2013
The Comets were selected, along with Edinburgh, by the Ipswich Witches for the Super Six play-offs with the Comets and Monarchs managements moving quickly to arrange this weekend
With the Premier League fixture still to ride (having had 2 rain offs and one abandonment) the 2 teams thought it a logical move to run a double header this Saturday (21st September) starting at 6:30pm with the Play-off match taking place first.
Ipswich came close to finishing top last night in an exciting match at Somerset but having finished second picked Workington and Edinburgh.
Thanks to both Chris Louis @ Ipswich and John Campbell @ Edinburgh the fixtures were very quickly scheduled and it means that the Comets have another busy weekend next weekend when they ride 3 fixtures in 3 days including a mammoth trip from Ipswich on Thursday up to Edinburgh on Friday.
Comets co-promoter Steve Whitehead said: "This is the business end of the season and even though those two tracks haven't been our favourite trips of late, we must remember this year we have already put Ipswich out of the KOC over 2 legs so it's all to play for. We definitely need our supporters to be part of this and become our 8th rider, especially at home."
The Comets fixtures are as follows (waiting for BSPA approval)
Saturday 21st Sept: Comets vs Monarchs (double header incl the PL match, Play-off first)
Thursday 26th Sept: Witches vs Comets
Friday 27th Sept: Monarchs vs Comets
