SAVE OUR BEES: Rye House fixture postponed as European fixtures take priority

COVENTRY Bees’ upcoming fixture against Rye House has been postponed due to an increase of rider unavailability.

The fixture was due to take place on Saturday (May 6), however the host team has made the decision to postpone the event amid a series of racing events taking place across Europe.

Three Grand Prix Qualifiers take place this weekend – and while Coventry skipper Danny King was already scheduled to be involved, Brandon legend Chris Harris has now also received a call-up for the Esbjerg round.

Bees had booked Lewis Bridger and Rory Schlein to take the places of King and Kenneth Bjerre.

The club was also waiting on news regarding the health of Josh Bates after he was forced out of Leicester’s trip to Hoddesdon on Monday due to illness.

A proposed date has been agreed by both clubs with a 3pm start planned for Sunday (June 25).

An apology has been issued to Bees fans and the club has thanked Rye House for their commitment to staging the meeting with the strongest possible sides.

Coventry will next be in action at Leicester in the East Midlands Bowl on Saturday (May 13).

Team news for that fixture will follow in the coming days.
