EAGLES NEWS IN BRIEF

NEXT Saturday (June 16) the Eastbourne Forman It Eagles match at Arlington against Kent will be in the National Trophy and not in the National League as previously advertised.

THE winner of first prize in the Eagles’ jackpot draw on Saturday was Robert Baseby, who took home £200. The Forman IT Eagles captain, Mark, is his nephew.

The second and third prizes were also claimed.

There is one outstanding prize (£33), ticket number 445. If you hold that ticket, bring it to the stadium next Saturday or email: eastbournespeedway@gmail.com - send a photo of the ticket with the email, if you can.

CHARLEY Powell has amazed supporters by riding so soon after breaking his collarbone in three places at Belle Vue last month.

Charley yesterday (June 8) had a keyhole procedure on his leg but still turned out against Plymouth.

“Do you sit at home or do you ride and score points,” he commented.

However, after a nasty jarring in his final ride against Plymouth, he has decided to sit out the trip to Kent on Monday.
