Poole Pirates' home at Wimborne Road will host the first meeting of a three-match test series between Great Britain and Australia on 1 June.

The second test takes place at Swindon on 2 June while Lakeside will host the third and final test on Friday, 3 June.

British Speedway chairman Alex Harkess said: "I'm delighted to see the return of a test series and I am sure both nations will be desperate to win it."

Poole boss Neil Middleditch took charge as Team GB speedway coach in March.

The Pirates manager was re-appointed to the role for the summer's Speedway World Cup in Poland having previously spent six years with the squad from 2001.
