Injury victims Lukas Dryml and Kim Nilsson are back in the Eastbourne Lifestyle Eagles team for Monday’s clash at Arlington against King’s Lynn.

Nilsson, whose injuries proved less serious than initially feared, has declared himself fit for action.

And Dryml, whose collarbone injury has been protracted, has been practising in the Czech Republic before flying to England on Sunday for a further session at Arlington ahead of the meeting.

Captain Cameron Woodward and new Danish sensation Mikkel Michelsen also return to the fold after last week’s international commitments.

Eagles’ team manager Trevor Geer said, “It is a pleasure to announce a full-strength team and not to be scouring the country for replacements.

“When Kim crashed at Lakeside last Friday it did look as if he had broken his ankle. Fortunately that was not the case and he was back racing on Tuesday.”

Co-promoter Mike Bellerby emphasised to supporters that the match would not be on television.

“This is not a Sky meeting,” he said.

“Fans saw a tremendous meeting against Lakeside last Saturday and with the return of the missing riders fans can look forward to another super night of speedway action on Monday.”

The meeting begins with the parade at 7.30pm and the first race at 7.45pm. Turnstiles open from 6.00pm.

Bellerby also confirmed the Eagles would stage a double header on August 31 with Birmingham on first (7pm) and Peterborough following.

Admission prices will be: Adults £25 and Concessions £22.

Prices for children are unaltered at £6.

Holders of an Eastbourne Elite League Pass will be given a free programme for the remaining meetings starting with the match against King’s Lynn.

The collection for the Speedway Benevolent Fund at Arlington last Saturday raised more than £860.
