CUP CLASH POSTPONED

Wednesday May 08, 2019
Tonight's scheduled meeting against Redcar in the SGB Championship KO Cup has been postponed.

Heavy overnight rain and a none-too favourable forecast for later in the day, prompted the club to make the early decision to postpone the meeting, thus hopefully avoiding the risk of unnecessary travel, especially for the visiting side.

Promoter Debbie Hancock said, "Whilst it is never easy to have to call off a meeting, we just felt that it was in the best interests to make an early decision. The forecast for later today is none too promising and with the rain we have had overnight the risk to racing is far too great. Looking at the long-term forecast next Wednesday it is far more encouraging and with the co-operation of the Redcar management we have agreed to re-schedule this fixture for then, so we will be back at the Oaktree on Wednesday May 15th."

Friday’s meeting at Redcar still goes ahead as planned, although will now, of course, be the first leg of this cup-tie.
