Update on collection for Bees riders
 
A total of £2700 has been raised to help the riders worst affected by the late withdrawal of the Bees team from the SGB Premiership. This fund was made up of donations from Wolves Speedway, meetings at NSSC and a Just Giving page.
 
Drawing a line at the end of May we have distributed the money as fairly as possible according to the number of meetings each rider has missed by the Bees not racing.
This means that; James Sarjeant will receive £1050, Jason Garrity £825, Lasse Bjerre £525 and Lewis Kerr £300. (Danny King, Kenneth Bjerre and Josh Bates all re-signed for other teams before the season started).
 
Thank you to everybody who contributed.
 
Statement
 
We are really saddened by what has been allowed to happen at Brandon but it will be business as usual at the NSSC as long as we continue to receive your great support. We will endeavour to continue to provide interesting evenings and events with the sole purpose to raise funds for Neil Vatcher and the GB Young Lions.

A Celebration of British Youth Speedway at the NSSC

 

The Young Lions Management held a “Celebration of British Speedway night” at the Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club,  Brandon, Coventry on Saturday night to celebrate the success of all the 2016 British Champions.

 

With over 100 people in attendance, which included 6 of the 7 2016 British Champions, Danny King (Senior), Josh Bates (Under 21), Max Clegg (Under 19), Kyle Bickley (500cc Youth), Nathan Ablitt (150cc Youth) and Dan Thompson (125cc Youth).

The 250cc Youth Champion Leon Flint unfortunately was unable to attend due to a family illness.

 

Steve Brandon from Sky Sports compared the evening, and did a fantastic job interviewing the 6 British Champions who were in attendance, and along with GB Youth Boss Neil Vatcher, a number of the British Youth Sponsors.

 

Vatcher said, “Saturday was yet another first for the Young Lions to organise such an amazing and enjoyable evening and would like to thank the members of the Nuneaton Supporters Club for hosting us, and also to Brando for doing such a great job on the mic, and to all the riders and supporters who came along”.

 

“Thoughts are already in place on how we do it bigger and better next year” Vatcher said, and quoted with a cheeky smile, “perhaps we might think about organising a Big Awards night involving all of British Speedway with the proceeds going back to supporting the British Youth!”

2017 Sponsorship Update

 

The NSSC (Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club) are pleased to announce that they will be continuing their financial support for the Young Lions in the 2017 season. 


As discussed recently with Neil Vatcher the NSSC will make £1500 available to help encourage and support young British riders. 


Proceeds from all of the NSSC's events are used to help Neil Vatcher and the Young Lions so a very big thank you to everybody who supports these events and especially those riders, team managers, promoters and referees who give up their time to entertain us.
