Lions Promoter Dave Darcy has paid tribute to the fantastic support the club receives from Leicester Speedway Supporters Club.

“We have a great working relationship with the committee and they play an important role in helping us to take Leicester Speedway forward. They often contribute to the financial running of the club in many ways and none more so following ‘Storm Doris’ which passed over Beaumont Park in February. We were devastated to see what damage the storm had done to the stadium as the destruction was beyond belief. In the midst of assessing what was needed to carry out repair work the Committee came forward in our hour of need with a donation to help pay for some of the cost. It was a fantastic gesture of which we were so grateful.”

The financial assistance is made possible by a healthy membership and the support the Committee receive from fans that purchase 50/50 tickets at each home meeting. Such generosity allows the Committee to give something back to the club by way of paying for each of the Lions team rear tyres in all Premiership fixtures away from home.

Committee member Rachael Smith said: “We would like to give thanks to all our members as without them we could not continue to carry out the work that we do on behalf of Leicester Speedway.

“This year we had a membership of 165, however we hope to increase membership in the forthcoming season - the more members we have the more we can help Leicester Speedway. Should anyone wish to join the committee or help us out on race nights with the selling of the 50/50 tickets then please do not hesitate to contact us via the LSSC website or Facebook page.

“The more money that we raise, the more our club will succeed - something I think that all fans wish to see. Finally on behalf of the committee we would to say thanks to Leicester Speedway management and sponsors for all assistance given to make our Supporters Club a successful one."
