Leicester Lions continue Long Eaton speedway link-up


Leicester Lions have confirmed they will continue their partnership with currently homeless Midland Development League Long Eaton into 2012.

The Invaders last raced at their former Station Road base in 1997 but staged fixtures at Beaumont Park this season following Lions meetings.

Long Eaton project director Andy Higgs said: "We were thrilled with the level of support we received last season.

"The crowd levels that stayed behind to watch Long Eaton were fantastic."

Higgs added: "Naturally our ambition is to secure a similar facility back in Erewash in the near future and we are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that we explore avenues to make this a reality. In the meantime, we could not wish for better hosts."
