Ben Barker is set to return to action on Tuesday when the Newcastle ‘Grants Event Catering’ Diamonds travel down to Plymouth in another Championship League encounter.
Barker has been receiving regular check ups and feels that now his pins in his fingers have been removed and the movement in his fingers is pretty much back to normal, he is keen to get back and give his all for the Diamonds.
While he has been out injured, he has still been seen in the pits cheering and helping the lads along. His commitment and enthusiasm for Newcastle Speedway considering he has a 880 mile round trip every week is exceptional and it will be good to see him get going again.
Newcastle Speedway and Plymouth speedway have mutually agreed that the restaging date for today’s postponement will be 8th August when both Jason Crump and Bjarne Pederson will come to Tyneside.
The meeting will be run as a doubleheader with the Poole Pirates, tapes up 4pm.
Tickets from today’s postponement have been automatically forwarded to next weeks championship match with Scunthorpe 4pm. If anyone would prefer to be refunded then please email us at Info@newcastle-speedway.co.uk. All refunds requested up to this point have now been authorised.
