LEICESTER Speedway's National League team will be named 'Lion Cubs' - by popular demand.

Club bosses wanted to get the opinion of supporters and gave several options on the club's twitter feed.

And the response to the Lion Cubs was so emphatic they've ended the poll early!

Club co-promoter Stewart Dickson said: "There really is no point in continuing with the survey, it's been so emphatic.

"From the 2019 season we have a National League team called the Leicester Lion Cubs and it means the Leicester public have a lot of speedway on offer next season.

"The National League will have some fine young riders in it next season and I'm sure it will be well worth watching."

Dickson says team building is already making progress and the first signings will be announced soon.

"We've been looking at all the available options to build a team and we already have riders agreed," he said.

"We should be making an announcement very soon regarding the first signings for the team."
