KO CUP SEMI ON MONDAY

Eastbourne head to Sittingbourne on Monday (September 24) for the first leg of the National League KO Cup semi-final.

The Forman IT Eagles, who have won the cup for the last three years, will face the Kent Kings.

Team manager Connor Dugard said: “It’s a big match, as it always is against Kent.

“They have riders who can easily max out on their own track – but, so do we.

“We are looking to win but our key objective is to keep it close ahead of the second leg on Saturday on our home track at Arlington.”

Eagles: Georgie Wood, Jason Edwards, Mark Baseby R/R, Charley Powell, Tom Brennan, Ethan Spiller, Charlie Brooks. No 8: tbc
