Cup Final off again. Restaged Sunday October 27th ... (reserve date Monday 28th)
Sunday 20th October 2019, 10:47 UK
With the Brough Park track again underwater and hoplessly waterlogged with heavy rain forecast from noon to 6pm, the management of the Diamonds have had no option but to call off the second leg of the Knockout Cup Final with the Redcar Bears.
The Stadium is not available to the Speedway organisation on Monday 21st due to Greyhound commitments, so a rapid recall cannot be done.

The Cup Final will now take place next Sunday October 27th at 6.30pm at Brough Park when the much awaited local derby national Final will finally be decided, the Bears currently leading on aggregate by 12 points, 39 - 51.

Should the unthinkable happen and the weather on the 27th again turn foul, then Monday 28th October at 7.30pm has already been set aside as the reserve date should it be needed.

With the 27th/28th of the month being the last available weekend of the 2019 speedway season, its regrettable that the planned 90th Anniversary Celebration meeting has had to be shelved indefinitely.

Team manager George English said: "This is becoming extremely frustrating and worrying with the end of the season rapidly looming upon us, and its also proving a hugely costly time for us as come next week it will be six weeks since our last home meeting, so next week, be it Sunday or Monday the weather has got to be our friend and allow us to conclude the season with our most important match of the year.

"It has, as a necessity, meant that our big 90th Season Celebration meeting has had to be taken off the fixture list."
