Weymouth chief Brian White is trying to take speedway training schools back to the Wessex Stadium. The Dorset track is famous for the schools run by Lew Coffin down the years. And White is in talks with landlords Weymouth Football Club and the Speedway Control Bureau about getting them up and running again.

White said: "I am trying to work out an arrangement with the football club to allow us to run training schools on Friday nights. We are trying to come to some arrangement over rent because we wouldn't be in it to make money, we'd be in it to get lads into speedway at the grass roots."

"I have spoken to Graham Reeve and he has told us that we need to apply to run training schools. We have spoken to Graham about getting a training licence and we're in the process of doing that at the moment. A lot of people have asked about training schools. Weymouth used to be a training school and there is a lot of interest now from local grasstrackers and moto-x riders who want to give speedway a try."

The Wildcats Supporters' Club stage a get-together in the Wessex Lounge at the Wessex Stadium tomorrow (October 24) starting at 7.30 pm, when it is hoped speedway videos will be screened. Weymouth are also staging a presentation night, Christmas party and disco all rolled into one at Swansons Restaurant in the town on Friday, November 28.
