With their KO Cup dates with Birmingham sorted for June 28th at Perry Barr and Thursday 29th at the St Boniface Arena the club’s original reserved date of Friday 16th June will now be used for the Devon Best Pairs.
All eight of the Devils squad will be in action along with six invited riders to make up the format of seven riding pairings. The club are inviting riders with Plymouth and Devon connections as much as possible.
First to accept the invite is Eastbourne’s Connor Coles , a Devon lad with the great pedigree of his father Mike and grandfather Bob, both Exeter legends.
Co-Promoter Mark Phillips believes the meeting will be well received by the fans, “With the cup match sorted we looked at the fixtures and decided to do something different. We then came up with the Devon Best Pairs and aim to make it an interesting one by inviting riders as far as possible who have connections with the club or have Devon roots . Connor Coles fits that perfectly and rides the St Boniface Arena well ….and no doubt will get plenty of support from the fans in Devon.”“We will announce other riders as they agree to take the booking and then look at the format of who will partner who. It should be an interesting night to be sure.”
