The Monarchs Fans Trust have been a huge help to the Club, particularly with financial support, since being set up in early 2015. Now they are branching out in another direction but with the same objective as before to help secure the future of Edinburgh Monarchs.
Although fund raising from outwith race meetings has proved vital to the Club in recent times the best way to ensure that Edinburgh Monarchs have a strong future for many years to come is to bring more supporters through the gates on race night and that's what the Monarchs Fans Trust are setting out to do during the summer months.
The Fans Trust have arranged to attend gala day events throughout West Lothian in the hope of placing Armadale Speedway in front of the eyes of those who do not stay very far away from the stadium.
Said MFT Chairman, Len Jones, "We want as many people as possible to know that speedway racing takes place every Friday at Armadale Stadium and that the Parsons Peebles Monarchs and the stadium itself are very much alive and kicking. We are starting off at Bathgate Gala Day this Saturday and then we have events every Saturday in June. We're quiet during July and the early part of August and would welcome suggestions of events taking place in this period that we can attend."
The Monarchs Fans Trust are always looking for new members and are also interested to hear from anyone who would like to help out at the forthcoming events. Speak to any member of their committee at the stadium on Friday.
