Mellish: 'A Year To Be Proud Of!'
Club reserve Andy Mellish has echoed captain Matt Williamson’s determination to round off their season in a blaze of glory when the Cool Running Colts tackle Birmingham and Coventry on Friday.

Mellish said: “It’ll be tough, there’s no doubt about it. With Birmingham you’re faced with perhaps the hardest team in the league while with Coventry maybe not quite as tough, but still very feisty.
“We know the Brummies quite like our track, given the result they got here last time but the Storm are still relatively unknown quantities here; Even at this stage, this is a circuit they’ve yet to visit!
“But we won’t be underestimating either of these teams. Coventry haven’t had the greatest year but they did a number on us at Brandon and so of course we’re up for returning the favour on Friday.
“That was a very important weekend for us. That night in September, we were the second of a double-header that began with the Coventry Bees and admittedly that was my first look at Brandon.
“It was a disappointing result because we didn’t necessarily ride bad. It perhaps just took us a while to get going as we were certainly stronger towards the end of the meeting than we were initially.
“By then the damage was done which is why, as I mentioned, we’re keen to put right our mistakes. Friday’s a big night for the team. We want to win both meetings and put on a show for the fans.
“All seven of us have been lucky to be with the Colts this year. We’ve not taken that for granted. The fans have been fantastic and to finish on a high would be our way of giving something back to them.”
