Hammers looking to return

Lakeside Promoter Jon Cook has confirmed that the Hammers want to return to the top flight league next season.

Speaking to Peter Oakes in the Speedway Star, Cook commented:

“Realistically, the only option for us is to run back in the top league and it should be there because our landlords are aware of the dates when we need to be able to confirm everything.

We have asked if we can attend the pre-AGM as observers rather than taking part to see what team strengths are going to be and that’s our aim, to obviously put speedway back to where it was in the top league”

Cook is hoping to be in a position to tell Hammers fans more details about their 2018 plans at the last meeting of the season, which will be confirmed shortly.
