Awsom clash at the Abbey.

Speedway Swindon Robins v Kings Lynn.

SWINDON Speedway bosses are calling on fans to turn out in force for two crucial home meetings this week – starting on Monday against league leaders Poole (7.30).

Poole are favourites for the league title but Robins boss Alun Rossiter says his focus is purely on his own team.

He said: “Yes, Poole are a great side, but I’m really just interested in my own team and hopefully we can get two wins at home this week.

“Obviously the fans can play their part and it would be great to hear the famous Blunsdon roar. I’m sure there will be a great atmosphere for both meetings, especially as adults can come to the Thursday match for a tenner!

“August is a massive month and we need to start in style with a win against the title favourites. I’m looking forward to it.”

The Abbey Stadium side also race against Birmingham on Thursday and the club are offering cut-price admission as an incentive to supporters to attend both meetings.

A joint-programme will be produced to cover both matches, and included will be a voucher which supporters can cut out having attended the Poole fixture on Monday.

When presenting this voucher along with their re-admission ticket at the turnstiles on Thursday, adults can gain entry to the Birmingham match for just £10, with concessions reduced to £5.

Children aged between 11-15 will be admitted free to the Birmingham match on production of the Poole re-admission ticket, and all under-11s are free when accompanied by an adult. No programme vouchers are required for children.
