TIGERS co-owner Peter Mole admits supporters have been dealt another blow with the cancellation of their upcoming STAARS gatherings.

The social events, which see riders and management members interviewed at the New Barrack Tavern near Owlerton, were set to return on Thursday with further meetings pencilled in for the third Thursday of each month.
But pub bosses were forced to pull the plug on the opener following the latest set of restrictions issued for the local area this week.
Said Mole: “It’s a massive shame because to some of our supporters, these STAARS events are an important part of their social life.
“A number of them were shielding earlier in the year and none of them have had the chance to meet up with their friends on the terraces this season.
“So while numbers were going to be restricted, it was an ideal opportunity to be reunited and get talking about speedway again.
“Each month’s meeting will now be assessed one step at a time but fingers crossed we can get everyone back together very soon.”

Tigers bosses remain hopeful of keeping the same team for 2021 including triple World Champion Nicki Pedersen and Australian sensation Jack Holder.

Boss Simon Stead makes his debut as Great Britain manager this weekend in the Speedway of Nations in Poland.

European Champion Robert Lambert is joined by former Sheffield man Drew Kemp with Belle Vue’s Dan Bewley the Under-21 rider. Stead partners Ollie Allen at the helm.

The meetings take place on Friday and Saturday and will be shown live on BT Sport at 6pm.
