Injured Eastbourne Eagle Charley Powell is expected to make a surprise return to action tomorrow (June 6).

He has been named by the Forman IT Eagles to ride in their National League match at Birmingham.

Powell broke his collarbone less than a fortnight ago in a crash at Belle Vue but has declared himself fit to ride after a practice session.

He was with his teammates last Saturday helping in the pits as the Eagles overcame Coventry at Arlington to reach the semi-finals of the KO Cup.

However, 16-year-old reserve Charlie Brooks has been ruled out after taking a battering in a high-speed crash last Saturday.

Team manager, Connor Dugard, said: “We go into every meeting trying to win, and to take points from all fixtures.”

Team: Georgie Wood, Charley Powell, Mark Baseby, Jason Edwards, Tom Brennan, Stephen Whitehouse, Kelsey Dugard, No 8 tbc
