Coventry Speedway: Horton apologises to supporters

COVENTRY promoter Mick Horton issued an apology to supporters following Friday’s 38-52 home defeat at the hands of local rivals Wolverhampton.

The loss completed a troubled two days for the Buildbase Bees, who also went down by a 20-point margin at Swindon on Thursday, and the result leaves them with just a win over Leicester to show for their opening three Elite League matches, ahead of a trip to King’s Lynn on Monday.

Horton said: “I want to apologise to the fans, and say that I take full responsibility for the performances, which are totally unacceptable.

“The fans have come out in force in cold weather, and what we’ve dished up so far isn’t good enough.

“I’m not singling riders out, the riders are disappointed themselves, and it’s clear we’ve been found wanting in various areas.

“No rider goes out to under-perform, and our riders as disappointed as the fans and the management are.

“I built this team, so I take responsibility for it, and clearly at the moment we aren’t up to scratch.

“I know that the Coventry Speedway fans are intelligent speedway fans, they understand the sport, and they will be aware that changes are very, very difficult to make at this stage – nigh-on impossible in fact until May 1.

“But we all know it’s a results business, and that the fans deserve better. The support is fantastic, we really appreciate the loyalty, and that’s really been the only bright spark over the last couple of nights – so please don’t give up on us.”
