THE Ben Fund Bonanza at Swindon on March 8 will feature a four-team tournament between England, Australia, Poland and Denmark.The English quartet will include Craig Cook, who won the individual event at Leicester last year, Richard Lawson and Bonanza ever-present Ben Barker.Already lined-up to ride for the other nations are King’s Lynn skipper Rory Schlein (Australia), Leicester newcomer Szymon Wozniak (Poland) and Denmark’s Thomas Jorgensen.Cook said: “Yes I’ve told Paul (Ackroyd) I will do it again. I don’t have any bikes ready at the moment and I need to get some practice, because I don’t want to go straight into bumping handlebars without having a few laps, but assuming I get that organised I will be there.”(SPEEDWAY 2)

NEWCASTLE have reached agreement with the BSPA to make new skipper Ludvig Lindgren a full asset of the club.Lindgren had previously been on the retained list of the former Birmingham promotion, dating back to his Premier League campaign with the Brummies in 2009, reverting to the BSPA when the Perry Barr club closed last year.Newcastle co-promoter Alan Hedley said: “We entered into discussions with the BSPA to bring Ludvig to the club on a full time basis and after a few weeks of negotiation we were able to reach a satisfactory settlement that both sides were comfortable with.“We are delighted with the move as Ludvig is very much part of the Brough Park scene now and indeed in 2015, which will be his fourth season with the club he will also take over as club captain so the fact that he will be an asset of the club will give that position even more credence.”
