Awards for season’s top performers

The 2013 season, which will not be remembered fondly by Coventry Buildbase Bees fans, finally came to a dismal end with last Friday’s East Midlands Bowl second leg against Leicester cancelled the previous day due to poor weather forecasts. With no more Friday dates available, the meeting will not be rerun this year. It is planned to open 2014 with it.

Bees, who finished bottom of the Elite League table, received some heartening news at Saturday’s Presentation night. Chris Harris is to return next season after a year’s loan at Birmingham for what will be his testimonial year and will be joined by Danish rider Kenneth Hansen, who impressed at the Brandonapolis and comes on loan from Wolverhampton. Further signings will be made after the AGM of the BSPA which will decide the criteria for next year’s teams. Scott Nicholls also stated that he has no plans to retire so will obviously come into consideration.

2013 Awards: Rider of the Year – Grzegorz Zengota.

Most Improved Average: Grzegorz Zengota.

Most Bonus Points – Scott Nicholls.
