Apology from Jitendra Duffill
Redcar ‘ECCO Finishing Supplies’ co-promotor Jitendra Duffill would like to make the following apology to Bears fans:
On behalf of myself and our squad I would like to apologise to our supporters for our recent performances. I feel embarrassed by our scores over the last week which were completely unacceptable. All of us are underperforming and I take full responsibility for the position we are in at the moment. I know it’s tough to watch but please believe me when I say nobody is hurting more than us. No excuses, we simply haven’t been good enough!
Last nights match at Scunthorpe was humiliating and I honestly felt ashamed to be a part of it. We all were. I promise that we are not taking this lightly and we will work hard to put things right. Unfortunately there is no quick fix to this and it is up to me and our 7 riders to improve and regain some pride.
We now have 2 weeks to get our house in order for our first league meeting at home. We must do better and have to see a big improvement in all of our performances. All of us are aware that things cannot go on as they are. We don’t get new and ‘real’ averages until the 1st June and we will have to review our options closer to that time.
Unfortunately in sport things don’t always work out as planned. Nobody likes to lose and riders don’t choose to score poorly. If a rider doesn’t score he doesn’t get paid. We can’t change what’s happened so far but we can change what happens from here. I won’t give up on our supporters or this club and I promise that we will do everything we can to put things right.
