The Comets rescheduled visit to Glasgow for our final away league fixture on Sunday has been postponed until later in the month.
This Sunday's scheduled Premier League fixture at Glasgow was likely to feature several enforced rider changes due to a combination of injuries on both sides as well as overseas commitments. It has therefore been agreed by both clubs that it is in everyone's interest to postpone the meeting until a later date.
The fixture will now take place on Sunday 26th October at 3:00pm and will be the last match of the season for both teams.
With Rene Bach due to miss the fixture owing to the Polish League Play-off Final, which was already logged in the International Fixture Calendar, and no guest or rider replacement facility permitted, plus the absence of Josh Grajczonek through injury. We would have required a PL guest for Josh and a National League rider to replace Rene.
The Tigers would also have been missing Victor Palovaara, Kevin Wolbert and Rusty Harrison. With Palovaara and Wolbert, like Rene, also having to be replaced by a National League rider.
Additionally Mildenhall requested that Joe Jacobs compete in the National League play-off semi-final second leg on Sunday as they have been hit hard by injuries in recent weeks, and if he had fulfilled that fixture another National League rider would have been required.
Meanwhile Simon Lambert faces a long trip to Poole for the play-off final with King's Lynn the following day. Also the visit to Swindon the next day for Kyle's play-off with Coventry was also far from easy after a trip north to Glasgow.
Consequently it was agreed by both clubs that rather than put on a meeting littered with guests, and on a day that was not ideal for several reasons; moving the fixture was in the best interests of everyone, especially for the paying public.
The promotions of both clubs would like to apologise to both sets of supporters for the late notification of the fixture change but feel it is one-hundred-percent the correct decision.
