Craig To The Rescue

NEWS Tuesday 19th June 2018, 8:30pm

by Toby Lerone

Following on from Erik's injury at Newcastle on Sunday we were searching for a replacement when the call came from Craig Cook to confirm that he would ride.

Craig was in the original list of riders invited but couldn't confirm until he knew that he wouldn't be required for practice in Poland. Thankfully that confirmation came just in time to join our meeting.

Rider sponsorship packages are available for just £120. Riders still available are Mason Campton, Max Ruml, Paul Starke and Joel Andersson. Within the package you will receive:

  • 2 x Stadium admission
  • 2 x Souvenir Jubilee Magazines
  • Signed Jubilee racejacket worn by your rider to take home
  • DVD of the Jubilee

Also on offer is the opportunity to rub shoulders with some Monarchs legends in our hospitality lounges with our Platinum VIP package priced at just £40 including:

  • VIP hospitality throughout the event including food and drink
  • Glass of bubbly upon arrival
  • Souvenir Jubilee Magazine
  • DVD of the Jubilee

Book Tickets and Packages

We are hopeful on the night to be joined by many ex-Monarchs and those that have indicated that they hope to be there are riders from the Old Meadowbank, Coatbridge, Powderhall and Armadale eras. We hope to welcome Bobby Beaton, Alistair Brady, Ross Brady, Brian Collins, Les Collins, Neil Collins, Sean Courtney, ex team manager George Cummings, Harry Darling. It will be great to see Mitchell Davey. James Grieves, Neil Hewitt, Rob Hollingworth, Scott Lamb, Steve Lomas, David McAllan, Cal McDade, Kenny McKinna, Gordon Mitchell, Alan Robertson, Guy Robson, Jock Scott, Derek Sneddon, Sean Stoddart, Glyn Taylor, Doug Templeton, Dave Trownson and Brian Turner. And not forgetting Max Fricke.

Peter Carr, perhaps the greatest of our Armadale riders, is 50/50 on attending and that's much more positive than he normally is but he does promise that if he doesn't make it on Friday he will visit later in the season.

Gold members are reminded that this meeting is not part of their package although special low priced tickets can be purchased online or through their normal admission gate.

It's going to be a great night on and off the track!
