EDINBURGH FALCONS cycle speedway team return to their Redbraes Park track tomorrow for a Northern League match against Sheffield Stars (2pm) which is a re-run of last season’s title decider which the hosts narrowly edged.

Falcons will be looking to bounce back from a 108-70 defeat at Astley and Tyldesley when heat leader Craig Newsome was a notable absentee and Mikey Hewitson had to take on extra responsibility.

The match will be followed by a second team match in Division Two when Falcons will again feature 70-year-old Johnny Murphy, who has shown in his last two meetings he retains a sharp edge.
