PREMIER League Scunthorpe are
fighting for survival after promoter Rob Godfrey issued a warning about falling
attendance levels this week.
The Scorpions have endured a
tough season on-track after a string of injuries and are currently bottom of
But boss Godfrey
is more worried about poor crowds at the Eddie Wright Raceway, something which is
threatening the future of the Lincolnshire club.
Godfrey said: “Last year, I
informed our fans that we needed around 100 more people through the gate a
week. This year, the situation has worsened, maybe because we haven't been
successful on track.
“The Bank Holiday crowds have
been okay, but our Friday night attendances have been very poor. We no
longer need another 100 fans a week, we now need another 200.
“Whether we're finished as a
club, I don't know. I don't want this to be our last season, but I have to say
we're fighting for survival now. No decision has been made yet, but I need to
know that people still want speedway in Scunthorpe and that we're going to get
the level of support we need to make it viable to continue.”
