Club owner talks out ahead of last home meeting of 2015

With the Vortex Lakeside Hammers preparing for their final Elite League outing at the Arena Essex Raceway club owner Stuart Douglas has joined in the build-up to this important meeting.

Hammers are due to host defending champions and current leaders Poole on Friday, looking to end their home schedule on a high.

Douglas said: “2015 has been a difficult season on and off track for the club and the fans and whilst I cannot offer secure comfort regarding next year - that facility is not within my control - those that know this promotion will understand that we will fight every inch of the way.

“Without wishing to create more drama around the details we just don’t know, it would be great if all our fans that have visited us over the years come and see what I suspect will be a fantastic Elite League meeting against Poole and certainly the last for this season at the Arena Essex Raceway.”

The meeting sides starts at the usual time of 8pm with the parade of riders scheduled for 7.45pm.

Tickets will be available on the night through the paybooths, but may also be purchased in advance online via the club’s website at www.lakesidehammers.co.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
