Leicester have made one change to the team that lost at home against Belle Vue on Saturday with the signing of Aaron Summers on loan from Glasgow. Summers, who has had previous experience of riding in the Elite League will make his debut in Wednesday’s televised Sky Sports meeting against the Swindon Robins at the Beaumont Park Stadium.

With the arrival of Summers the Lions Polish International Grzegorz Walasek has been released. “It was a difficult decision that was not taken lightly. Grzegorz is employed as a Heat Leader and as such he has not replicated the form of 2015. I told him that we still believed in him and if could get his form back we would like to think that he could return to race for us again at some time in the future” explained the Paul Chapman and Sons Lions Promoter David Hemsley.

Walasek was one of Leicester’s chief points’ scorers at Beaumont Park last year and ended the season with a match average of 8.55 from seven matches but he was unable to reproduce the same form in the two recent home defeats against Lakeside and Belle Vue.

Hemsley said: “Aaron comes into the side on a 6.82 average following his end of season spell at Swindon where he did exceptionally well and has been itching to continue riding in the Elite League this season. Aaron’s contract is owned by Glasgow and he will continue to represent the Tigers in the Premier League in a double-up arrangement with us.”

Wednesday’s fixture sees the return of Jason Doyle to Leicester. In his two seasons spent racing for the Lions the Australian developed into a top star and is ranked the fifth best rider in World Speedway. Doyle, who captained Leicester before his move, has taken on the same role at Swindon where his teammates include four Australians.

The meeting is the first live televised Sky Sports Elite League fixture of the season and the club have announced lower admission prices across their ticket range of £10 (Adults), £22 family (2 Adults and 2 children), £5 Students (with valid NUS card) and £2 Children (10-15 inclusive) against the Robins.

“We promoted a special admission price for the same fixture last season which coincidently was transmitted live to a TV audience and we attracted a large crowd to Beaumont Park. The fans witnessed an entertaining meeting with a Lions win at the end and we would like to think that sports minded people of Leicester will take advantage of our offer and come and support their local team” added Hemsley.

Leicester: 1. Patrick Hougaard, 2. Nicolai Klindt, 3. Aaron Summers, 4. Szymon Wozniak, 5. Sebastian Ulamek, 6. Josh Auty and 7. Paul Starke

Swindon: 1. Jason Doyle, 2. Justin Sedgmen, 3. Josh Grajczonek, 4. Rohan Tungate, 5. Nick Morris, 6. Stefan Nielsen and 7. Charles Wright
