SPEEDWAY King’s Lynn promoter Dale Allitt is pressing on with plans for 2022, writes Nigel Pearson.
Owner Keith Chapman set alarm bells ringing at last month’s rained off meeting with Sheffield about his involvement with the club and at Peterborough.
However, Allitt has moved to reassure fans that both clubs are in safe hands as Chapman looks to enjoy more time away from the day-to-day running of the sport.
Writing in his programme notes for last night’s rearranged Sheffield clash, Allitt revealed: “Much has been said and written about the campaign, particularly here at Lynn.
“Our problems have been well documented and we have put our hands up and admit mistakes.
“But it’s time to look forward. We are already planning for 2022 and we are intending to make a positive announcement about that.
“It’s important to stress that, despite what Buster (Chapman) said here the last time we tried to race Sheffield, we are secure and we will be back.
“Buster likes to spend time away, enjoying some relaxing time and that’s why he has asked me to be more involved.
“He wants the club to run itself, which I’m sure can work well going forward.
“I know there were concerned fans when he made that outburst on the microphone but he was perfectly entitled to do so.
“We all know how passionate he is.
“I want to thank every rider – and there’s been a few – who has represented the club this season.
“Despite our results, their efforts are appreciated.
“I also thank our track staff, volunteers, sponsors and the brilliant fans for sticking with us during a tough season.”
Lynn will go to Sheffield for their rearranged Premiership meeting on Sunday, September 26 – the last day before the cut-off for the play-offs.
