New club sponsor announced

The Eastbourne Fineprint Eagles preparations for the new season back in professional speedway have received a tremendous boost.

Robins of Herstmonceux have joined the backroom team of supporting companies as Club Sponsor.

The Robins’ lorries are a familiar sight for Eagles’ fans on the roads throughout the area.

The family firm has been a long-term sponsor of Edward Kennett, who has returned to the Eastbourne ranks for the new campaign.

Club Director of Speedway, Jon Cook, said: “The support from our team sponsor, Fineprint, and community partner, HG Aerospace, had already  placed the team in a superb place for the season ahead.

“For Robins to now line up as club sponsor is another huge show of support for what we are trying to achieve at Arlington.”

He continued: “We are extremely fortunate to have Mick and Ice’s support for both the Eagles and offer of practical help for what Martin and I are hoping to achieve at Arlington Stadium. 

“Mick and his boys were the backbone of our Brighton Bonanza promotions and they’ve long supported the Eagles.

“For that level to increase amid the enthusiasm that everyone has for the season ahead is tremendous.

“I cannot personally thank them enough.”

Eagles fans can hear more about plans for next season at a fans’ forum on Sunday at the stadium (2pm) and ahead of that is news of a new signing on Friday which will add to the feel-good factor in Sussex.
