The Lakeside Hammers are delighted to offer fans the opportunity to acquire a truly unique piece of Lakeside memorabilia.

Every Hammers rider who competed in the 2018 Farewell to the Arena meeting against the Glasgow Tigers, (including our injured star Kyle Newman) has signed a genuine, one off, race- ready bib designed and produced by Arena-Essex legend, Colin White.

We would now like to invite supporters to submit bids to secure that truly extra special bit of Hammers history.

This auction will close at 5pm on THURSDAY 4th OCTOBER 2018.  There is a reserve price of £50 for each bib.

Winning bidders will be contacted on Friday 5th October. Home fans who are successful will be able to pay and collect their bib(s) at the play-off meeting the following evening against the Peterborough Panthers, or alternatively we will be able to post bibs to successful bidders who cannot make the Play-Off meeting.
