Wolverhampton captain Rory Schlein has set a date for his farewell meeting.

Wolves speedway captain Rory Schlein, with Jacob Waters, aged 4, of Birmingham.

The event will take place at Monmore Green on Sunday, July 26 (4pm) as he prepares to hang up his racesuit at the end of the 2020 campaign.

Schlein said: “It’s good to finally have a date set and it means we can begin planning for the big day now.

“I’d like to thank Chris (Van Straaten, promoter), the stadium and the BSPA (British Speedway Promoters’ Association) board members for their help along the way.

“I’m going for a standard individual meeting with 20 heats and 16 riders – and I’m going to do all I can to get some riders involved who the British fans don’t get to see too often or haven’t seen for a while.

“From the moment the gates open to the moment they shut, I want to make sure it’s a show for the fans who will be coming and spending their hard earned money.

“We’ve got lots in mind that we want to do - now to start putting the wheels in motion.”

The Parrys International Wolves’ press and practice session takes place on Monday, March 23 with the media session expected to start at 5.30 and track action getting under way around 7pm.

The following evening (Tuesday, March 24), the club will hold their annual Pre-Season Talk-In with riders and management at the Cleveland Arms Sports Pub from 7.30.

Plans continue to be assembled behind the scenes for their season opener at Monmore on Monday, March 30.
