Brandon Bees Cycle Speedway aim to continue their remarkable revival season by making it four home Midland League victories in succession at Brandon Road Playing Fields this Tuesday evening (21st July), 7.30pm start.

The Bees entertain top rated East Park Wolves of Wolverhampton at the recently refurbished Brand Road circuit full of confidence after opening their comeback campaign by beating Coventry, Birmingham and Leicester in their first three matches.

Brandon, who were embarking on their first away match at Birmingham this week, will call on track specialists Matt Hambidge and Dan Drewett to lead their attack against East Park.

Both youngsters have been in dynamic form in home matches this year. Rugby based Hambidge started his career with Bretford Bulldogs, whilst Drewett is enjoying his best season to date.

Middle order men Tom Sensicall and Kelvin Williams are also likely to feature against East Park, with fast rising 14 year old Coventry starlet Spencer Sawbridge also in contention for a recall to the Bees team.

Brandon boss Lee Marsh also hopes to call on the robust Charlie Barnett and comeback man Ashley Pointer, who last rode in 2006, as the Bees aim to maintain their surprise early season form and maintain their championship challenge.

Admission to all Cycle Speedway matches at Brandon Road Playing Fields is free to all spectators and onlookers can expect an evening of extreme cycle racing, where riders race without any brakes and full physical contact is allowed.

Brandon, who are using mainly Coventry registered riders this term to maintain racing at the former Bretford Bulldogs track, will take a break in racing in after the East Park match for three weeks, as the World Cycle Speedway finals are staged in the UK.
