2022 British Speedway Season


    YOUNGSTER Vinnie Joe Foord has pledged his future to local club Eastbourne – and will make his debut in the National Development League on Sunday.

    Hailsham-based Foord turned 15 on Tuesday and will replace the unavailable Richard Andrews for the Seagulls in this weekend’s Arlington clash with Leicester.

    Co-promoter Lee Kilby said: “Vinnie cannot sign a formal Eastbourne contract until he is 16.

    “However, he will today (July 14) be signing a formal ‘Letter of Intent’ to join the Eastbourne Eagles as a full asset on his 16th birthday, and, therefore, pledging his future to Eastbourne, which we know has long been his dream, and an opportunity we have all been eagerly awaiting.”
