Somerset Rebels ready for crunch Premier League Championship Final

The Highbridge-based Somerset Rebels will bid to make club history tonight (Monday) when they contest the second leg of the Premier League Championship Final at the Oaktree Arena against the Edinburgh Monarch.

The speedway club has never won a League Championship title and will need to overcome a 1st-leg two-point deficit if they are to claim a maiden Championship crown.

The club has previously twice finished as runners-up, in 2008, when they were pipped to the title by Edinburgh, and most famously last season when they lost by a single race point to Scunthorpe in the final.

"We may only be two points behind, but those points still have to be won," Somerset team manager Garry May told

"Edinburgh will be going all out to defend that lead, so nothing can be taken for granted."

"So what we really need is for all the Rebels fans to get down to the Oaktree Arena and for one last time this year to get right behind the boys as they look to write another chapter in the history of the club."

Monday’s action is scheduled to get underway at the usual start time of 7.30pm (with turnstiles opening at 5.30pm), with the usual end-of-season firework display to follow.

Should the weather intervene, then arrangements have been made to re-stage the match on Tuesday (29th October).

Fans who use the M5 motorway in order to get to the Oaktree Arena are also advised that major roadworks are underway on the stretch between the junctions for Weston-super-Mare (junction 21) and Burnham-on-Sea (junction 22) could cause delays with lane closures and speed restrictions in both directions, and fans are therefore advised to allow extra time when planning their journeys.
