Wimbledon speedway have received the best possible New Year present with news that the GMB Union have agreed to continue their backing of London's only speedway team.

The Plough Lane based outfit are preparing for their third successive Conference League campaign since returning to the sport in 2002, and once again they will be known as the Wimbledon GMB Dons.

GMB Dons Chairman Ian Perkin was understandably delighted to have regained the support of such a respected national organisation, "Retaining the valuable backing of the GMB Union is a major boost to everyone concerned at Wimbledon."

"To be associated with such a well regarded organisation is not only a positive benefit to both Wimbledon but to the sport as a whole." Perkin continued, "The GMB were very pleased with the benefits they obtained from being associated with the club last season and everyone at Wimbledon is looking forward to the relationship with one of the country's largest and well respected trade unions continuing well into the future."
