Somerset ‘Dickies’ Rebels Speedway Season skids to a halt

The 2011 speedway season came to an end on Sunday 23rd October for the Williamson-Dickie Europe Limited’s sponsored, Somerset ‘Dickies’ Rebels, following their participation in the Final of the Premier League Fours Championship at Leicester.

With Somerset missing three out of their top 5 riders due to injury and suspension, it was always going to be a tall order to expect the Rebels to be challenging for honours, and so it proved as they finished in 4th place, the Championship going to Ipswich, who won ahead of hosts, Leicester.

“Despite finishing 4th, the Somerset quintet were far from disgraced,” said promoter Debbie Hancock, “and did the team proud, but going into the Final as the only side tracking their two reserves and a National League rider, always meant that we were going to be up against it if we were to claim a place on the podium.”

The 2012 season starts in mid-March.
