UPDATE: This was of course an April Fool. Arlington is however ready and waiting to see you all for Press and Practice tomorrow.
As the Eastbourne Fineprint Eagles countdown to the launch of the 2019 Championship season, fans attending tomorrow’s Press and Practice will be the first to see a new addition to Arlington.
To maximise the use of the Stadium, the club have invested in a retractable Athletics track, which is moved onto the existing stockcar track by a simple roller mechanism.
Director Jon Cook commented:
“We’re always looking at ways to maximise revenue from the Stadium and were approached by a company from the Midlands who had the perfect solution to use the stock car track for additional sports.
Because of the simple roller mechanism, we’ve been able to crack on and install the new athletics track over the last 3 days. Along with providing additional facilities for the local community, we’ll also use the track as an additional warm-up facility for the boys before each meeting, with a series of sprint races, which will provide even more on-track entertainment for fans”
Fans are invited to attend press and practice from 11.30 am on Tuesday, when the #NewEraEagles will take to the Arlington Shale.
