Edinburgh Monarchs’ scheduled Championship Shield speedway opener against Workington Comets has been postponed with the Armadale track staff unable to get the circuit into a raceable condition for tonight’s match.

It was the second washout Monarchs have suffered since the season began earlier this month. A Monarchs spokesman said: “With the track already waterlogged following heavy overnight rain, it was concluded it would not be possible to get the track into a fit state for racing with the temperature again at a low level.”

No restaging date has yet been announced. Monarchs travel to Workintgon on Saturday in the hope of getting their qualifying group up and running. Monarchs have a decent record at Derwent Park, winning there once last season.
