Welcome to the homepage of The Leicester Speedway Supporters Club

Your Supporters Club needs you.

This year promises to be the best ever at Beaumont Park. The club would like to be more proactive this season but to do this we need your help. Last year we ran several events during the season which were poorly attended. We would like to know why. What events should we be running? Have you got any new ideas to take the club forward? We are continuing with the 50/50 (which supports all the riders with the cost of their away tyres) and the member VIP experience. Each member will get a badge and pen (exclusive to LSSC members).

It is only £6.00 for adults and less for everyone else.

Download the membership form below

However we need more committee members and even more importantly volunteers to help out with events.

The AGM is on Tuesday 27th February at the Keeper’s Lodge in Beaumont Leys Shopping Centre starting at 7.30pm.

Please come along to tell us your ideas and hopefully give us your support.

 Alex says,

I am currently raising money to raise awareness for 'Walking with the Wounded.'

The charity helps to fight the threat of the ex-service men and women, who due to mental illnesses and physical injuries have lost their jobs and their homes.

On Saturday 16th December, I will be making a 20 mile walk from Loughborough to my home in Wigston. 

 

On my way I will be visiting Leicester's own sports venues.

My journey will start at 9:00am at the athletics track in Loughbourough. My other destinations are Leicester Arena, home to the Riders and Cobras basketball teams, The Leicester Tiger's Rugby ground, Leicester City's King Power Stadium, Leicestershire Foxes cricket ground, before my last stop at home. 

 

In between these destinations, I'll be walking to the Leicester Speedway at Beaumont Park .

Alan Jones to kindly agreed to let me walk round the track. I would also like to thank the Thompson Twins who posed with me to promote my charity walk (See photo)

 

Please feel free to view my JustGiving page

 https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/wwtw20mile

 

I have decided to auction some of my speedway pictures and 100% of the money will go towards the Walking With The Wounded charity. From the order of the attachments they are Scott Nicholls, Tony Rickardsson, Nicki Pedersen Signed, Leicester Lions Team 1980 and Mark Loram Signed.

Truth is stranger than Fiction

Alex Kowal has sent this story to us about two long serving fans. his father Michael and Ian Turvey.

On 31st July 1977, several Lions fans travelled to King's Lynn as the Stars were hosting Leicester Lions. Ian Turvey (on the left of the photo) with his brother Chris on one side of the stadium and Michael Kowal (on the right of the photo) standing with his mate Steve Hamp on the other side. When the meeting ended, the Lions fans boarded the coach for home after Leicester were defeated 44-33. Ian and Chris were reading the speedway star, brought from the track shop, when Michael asked if he could have a quick look at the then 30p speedway magazine. This was when they first met and talked throughout the journey home about how good or how bad the Lions performance was. Since then, both Ian and Michael have attended speedway meetings together on the end of the fourth bend at Blackbird Road and many more away meetings. 

As time went by, Michael and Ian formed a strong friendship. Since then, Ian met and married Michael's sister-in-law Karen and had three children. Their youngest son James has since had a daughter Lilly. Then, Michael's nephew Stuart met and married Ian's sister Jane, who then had two daughters.
