With three home matches due in the space of a week, the 'Cases' Somerset Rebels are offering their fans a special discount on admission prices for next Tuesday's (6th August) meeting at the Oaktree Arena against Workington, as promoter Debbie Hancock explains;
"Any fans who attend our match on Friday (2nd August) against Redcar will be able to use their admission till receipts in order to gain admission to our match against Workington the following Tuesday for just £10.00."
"In order for this special offer to apply, Friday's match against Redcar must reach its conclusion, i.e. there being a result declared, and fans must present their till receipt issued at this Friday's match in order to be admitted for the reduced price of £10.00 the following Tuesday. In addition we are making next Tuesday's match against Workington a 'kids for a quid' match for all those aged 16 and under."
"We appreciate that by introducing this special offer, it means that our loyal season ticket holders will be disadvantaged as their season ticket package loses some of its value, but in recognition of this season ticket will now be valid for the home leg of our KO Cup semi-final tie against Edinburgh, something that was not part of the original package."
The next few weeks could prove pivotal to Somerset's hopes of a top six finish in the Premier League table, which would then see them progress through to the Championship deciding Play-Offs.
The first of these crucial matches is on Friday (2nd August) night when the Redcar Bears are the visitors to the Oaktree Arena, the Bears harbouring play-off ambitions of their own, they currently sitting in 3rd place in the Premier League table, in addition to which, like the Rebels, they are also in the semi-finals of the KO Cup where they hold a 6-point 1st leg advantage over Rye House.
After hoping to have led the Bears a merry dance on Friday night, it is back to the Oaktree Arena the following Tuesday (6th) for the visit of the Workington Comets, the current Premier League leaders, the Comets returning to the West Country just a month after an absolutely thrilling KO Cup tie between the two sides when came back from an almost impossible position with just two heats to go to pip the Comets by a single point on aggregate in a last heat decider.
"Both matches are going to be tough ones," said Rebels team manager Garry May, "but then when you start getting to the business end of the season, all matches are tough, there are never any 'easy' matches."
"Redcar are up there in the upper reaches of the league table on merit and have had a great year, so we'll need to be at our very best if we are to take all 3 league points from the match, which is very much the order of the day."
"Then we have Workington back here at the Oaktree Arena the following Tuesday, and if that match is anything like the 2nd leg of our Cup tie against the Comets at the beginning of July, then the fans will be in for another great night's entertainment."
"So what we really need is for the Somerset fans to turn up in numbers and really get behind the boys, the fans are our 'eighth rider' and can really give the guys a boost in these two crucial home matches as we look to consolidate our place in the top 6."
