NEWS: Hilton stands down as Hull chairman after 10 years

The Hull Cycle Speedway Club annual general meeting was held on the 28th October 2014, which saw longstanding club chairman, Derek Hilton, standing down after ten years in the role, although he will still be involved with the club. His replacement is to be long standing club member Rich Pawson.

The 20015 club committee will be:

Chairman/Club Welfare Officer: Rich Pawson

Secretary/First team Manager: Andy Schofield

Combination team Manager: Lewis Aylmer

Treasurer: Sharon Angell

Development Officer: Diane Bellis

Publicity: Emily Wade/Josh Bellis

Riders Representative: Dave Lister

Track Manager: Paul Stephenson

The club’s annual presentation night /buffet will take place on Friday 28th November 2014 at Hessle Rugby club, adjacent to the track, commencing at 7.30pm.

The Humberside club are also holding its annual prize bingo night at Newport Recreation Hall on Friday December 5th from 7-30pm which is always a good fund raiser for the club.

The clubs Tuesday training nights will be continuing throughout the winter months for the first time but are taking the form of circuit training run by Andy Angell rather than on the bike. Encouragingly the first two sessions have seen upwards of ten club members in attendance.

A number of improvements are planned to the track and facilities over the winter months and should include: re-surfacing of the track, some concreting work around the starting gate area, installation of a water supply to the pits area and installation of a hot water boiler in the clubhouse.

After lying pretty much dormant for the last year the clubs website is currently undergoing a makeover and update in preparation for the 2015 season. If any club/individual has a relevant website they would like adding to the site could they e-mail Rich Pawson on:
