Redcar Rock Newcastle

  Redcar Bears 53:37 Newcastle Diamonds. That’s the kind of emphatic result that Teessiders really appreciate against the Geordies. The final score though only tells half the story because Redcar trailed through the first part of the meeting, at one point by as much as 6 points. In the end we triumphed. Ty Proctor scored a maximum and local lad Stuart Swales made a triumphant comeback.   It was a struggle early on for the Bears as Newcastle meant business and roared into a ....

Bears Beat Brummies In Thriller

  Redcar Bears defeated Birmingham Brummies in a rip-roaring night of speedway. The Bears couldn’t prevent the Brummies taking a point which was fair enough on a night when both sides were so evenly matched that points were equal from six of the heats (six of the first eight!).   The first surprise was that Benji Compton was back at reserve, for one more night only. New signing Stuart Swales was unavailable after all this week because the aggregate averages for the side would ....

Bears Maul Scorpions

    Redcar Bears romped to victory tonight over Scunthorpe Scorpions but it was a cliffhanger until the penultimate heat. And not just on the track but up in the heavens, would the meeting survive the frequent showers?   It certainly did on a wet and windy night that was more like April than June Redcar Bears took maximum Premier League points from Scunthorpe. Havvy and Stoney joint top scored for the Bears on 10 points but there was a storming display apologies for the pun) ....

Bears Bounce Back

Redcar Bears 49-41 Glasgow Tigers   In 19th century America they used to set animals against each other to see which would win, invariably it seems bears came out on top against the big cats. So it was tonight at the Motorsports Park. But the Tigers fought us all the way, in fact only in the final heat were all the points settled.   After being mauled twice home and away by Kings Lynn Stars Redcar needed to dig deep and show their mettle. Those crushing defeats were a major set ....

Bears Crushed By Kings Lynn Stars

Redcar 38-54 Kings Lynn Redcar have never beaten the mighty Kings Lynn and any hopes of righting that wrong were crushed last night as the Stars from East Anglia shone brightly on Teesside. Their superiority was imposed from the start when Stars skipper Tomas Topinka roared away from the tapes and floored Gary Havelock and Robbie Kessler. Havvy trailed round in third behind Linus Eklof the start of an exceptionally disappointing evening for the Master Bear finishing with only a meagre 3 ....

Bears Left Out To Dry After The Rain
