The England football team’s progression into the World Cup semi-finals has prompted the Somerset Rebels speedway team to postpone their scheduled league match against King’s Lynn this coming Wednesday.

Announcing the decision, promoter Debbie Hancock said: “Whilst not having a meeting on Wednesday is extremely disappointing from a speedway perspective we have to acknowledge that England qualifying for the semi-finals is a massive achievement and we recognise that many of our supporters will be wanting to watch the football.”

As a result of this decision, the next scheduled action at the Oaktree Arena will be the SGB Championship pairs on Friday 20th July, the eve of the British GP in Cardiff.

Somerset visit Wolverhampton on Monday night (July 9th) when latest signing Aaron Summers will be making his club debut.
