LEICESTER Speedway boss Stewart Dickson is urging fans to turn out in force and back their bid for glory!

For the first time since the relaunch of the city club they are proving to be a major force on the Championship.

And Dickson, ahead of this Saturday’s battle against Birmingham at their Paul Chapman and Sons Arena, which is at Beaumont Sports Complex, wants to see the team get the support they deserve.
“We’ve made a great start to the season and we are making progress in every competition,” he said.
“We’re in the Semis of the Championship Shield, through to the next phase of the Knockout Cup and we are top of the league.
“It’s a case of so far, so good, but we need the fans to come along and get behind us and show the club owners, myself and the team what it means to them.

“The club have worked hard at promoting the sport over the last few months and we are extremely hopeful a winning team will spread a feel-good factor throughout the club.
“In addition, with other sports in the city now out of season, perhaps it’s a good opportunity to welcome new supporters to come along and watch this winning Leicester team.
“In simple terms we have had the best ever start to the season and it would be great to welcome new fans – or even those who have been before but not for some time – to the club.”

Children go free at all Leicester home meetings and Birmingham are expected to bring plenty of support on Saturday. The meeting starts at 7.30.

Leicester are without key reserve Jack Thomas who has won Under 21 international recognition with Great Britain and he is replaced by Luke Ruddick.

LEICESTER: Scott Nicholls, Connor Mountain, Josh Bates, Ryan Douglas, Richie Worrall, Luke Ruddick, Ellis Perks.
BIRMINGHAM: Adam Ellis, James Shanes, Zach Wajtknecht R/R, Ashley Morris, Ulrich Ostergaard, Paco Csatagna, Nathan Stoneman.
