As the 2018 season has reached its conclusion, the Hammers would like to thank the following:
Our team; Richard, Zach, Kyle, Adam, Nick, Ben and Alfie. Our same 1-7 throughout the season.
It’s never easy to change your home track late during a season, but the guys approached the difficult circumstances with a professional and positive approach, and with a stunning team spirit throughout every step of the 2018 campaign. Thank you for all your efforts entertaining us.
Our thanks also to Jason Edwards and to all the other riders who as guests have worn the crossed Hammers in 2018, and to all the mechanics and pit staff who have worked hard across the season.
Enormous thanks to Will, who helped the club to reach two finals in his first season in charge. His calm, professional and determined approach has made a huge impact on all who worked with him.
To every single one of our sponsors and partners, who provide invaluable revenue to the club to help us race. We thank you.
To Ken, our track manager, and his incredible track staff team, who have worked in all weathers this season. Without you, there would be no speedway and we hugely appreciate all of your efforts.
To Steve and Sandra Gibbons for their continued support the club with their rider of the month award.
To Andy, Matt and Glenn for keeping us up to date and entertained on Race nights.
To Lakesidelive for providing a fantastic updates service, not just for every single heat raced by the Hammers home and away in 2018, but also providing updates on the guys as they ride for their other teams in the UK and across Europe. A fantastic, dedicated service, that is part of the club.
To our Junior Hammers Trackside club organiser Donna Keetch whose sterling efforts helped us to reach out and engage with our younger fans. We hope that all of our Trackside Club members enjoyed the experience.
To our Community Partner, Ruggles & Jeffery, whose continued support over the last 7 years has enabled the Community Programme to grow further, from Mascots to Track nights, to Charity support, as well as helping us to continue to reach out across the Community.
To all of our Media Partners, who have helped to spread the Hammers Gospel in 2018, and to Nigel Pearson, Ryan Guest and Phil Lanning for their support with previews and reports.
To our track photographer Rafal Wlosek for providing stunning images in 2018, and to Taylor Lanning and Dave Payne for providing imagery from away fixtures. We greatly appreciate your support.
Finally, our biggest thanks to our Season Ticket holders, who provide unwavering support for the club and to all of our fans who have supported the team both at Arena and then at The House. We will never forget that emotional night on Friday 14th September.
We thank you all.
As previously mentioned, the Hammers Committee are planning to hold a get together, in Essex for fans in the near future. Further details will be provided.
