Edinburgh Monarchs are waiting to hear if title sponsors Scotwaste are going to back them for a tenth year next season.
Despite scooping all the major silverware in the Premier League last season, the speedway outfit dipped into the red again – underlining how important securing a company logo on their race-bibs is for the Armadale-based club.
Club chairman Alex Harkess said: “I have no reason at this stage to think they won’t be back on board and I’m due to have discussions with them.
“They had some great exposure last season, which I would hope will persuade them to complete a decade in their association with the team.
“Sponsorship – as everybody knows – is hugely important to every single speedway club in the country, and we are extremely grateful for all the help and support that Scotwaste have given to us over the past nine years, and we would all like to hope that this will continue.”
Meanwhile, Monarchs’ newest signing Max Clegg has been appointed captain of his National League speedway club Cradley Heathens.
The 17-year-old is a Cradley asset and has won the league title with them for the last two seasons.
Clegg said: “The last couple of weeks have been pretty special for me.
“Firstly, signing for Edinburgh, and now this. I’m a pretty lucky guy.”
