Storm news and fixtures

Jason Garrity has become a Coventry Bees asset after a deal was agreed with Rye House manager Len Silver. To complete the deal Edward Kennett moves in the other direction to become a Rye House rider. The fee was undisclosed.

Bees promoter Mike Horton said: “Both clubs realised this was a sensible piece of business and would like to thank Len Silver for the professional manner in which the deal was concluded.”

This means that Garrity, along with the other six members of the side, will be available for all of Bees fixtures, which is a great help and avoids the need for guest riders.

Gary Drinkwater, owner of City Gearboxes (Coventry), who sponsor Coventry Storm, has increased his company’s involvement with the sport, as this season they will also sponsor The National League.

The Coventry Storm fixture list has now been released. Unfortunately, having to tie in with the Bees list it has a slightly unbalanced look about it.

Five of the first seven fixtures are away but conversely six of the last eight are at home which does at least leave them a good run-in for the title if needed.

There will be a pre-season quiz at the stadium next Friday (February 27). Participants are asked to arrive by 7pm in order that teams can be registered for a 7.30pm start. Cost is £2.50 pp. (£10 for a team of four). Coventry riders are expected to be in attendance.
