Home Fixtures to be re-arranged AFTER this Friday!
The Comets disjointed 2018 fixture list has now just got a whole lot worse!
It goes without saying that trying to get some continuity with home fixtures has just got a whole lot harder this week with the news that the Comets, along with two other Championship clubs, have had their 'non-essential' off race-night Friday Home Fixtures removed from the official fixture list, despite having been in the fixture list since mid-January!
This is due to on-going problems of rider availability - a situation the Comets promotion are only too aware of following their fruitless search for a guest for their recent Friday evening visit to Glasgow!
This means that the Comets scheduled home fixture on Friday 13th July, along with those on Friday 27th July, Friday 3rd, 10th and 17th August will now all have to be re-scheduled for other days; which is a major logistical challenge and one that relies totally on the co-operation of other clubs.
The Comets home fixture with Berwick this Friday is NOT affected as Berwick are a fellow Saturday night track, with race-day priority, so the use of Friday to stage that fixture is permitted.
These late fixture changes are due to reasons outside of the club's control and now a significant amount of work is required to rectify the situation - it naturally affects the riders, the supporters and the Comets management, who can only apologise for any inconvenience caused and any new dates for fixtures will be announced at the earliest opportunity!
