Somerset Rebels announce new date for League Cup semi-final against Newcastle Diamonds
Cases Somerset Rebels will stage their rearranged League Cup semi-final first leg match against Newcastle Diamonds next Friday, September 28.
Last night's meeting between the two sides at the Oaktree Arena was abandoned after just five heats following a heavy downpour at the Highbridge circuit.
The Rebels were leading 18-12 at the time but, with no sign of the rain easing, the meeting was called off in the interest of rider safety.
The home side struck the first blow with a 4-2 advantage in heat one through Jason Doyle and Kyle Newman - in as rider replacement for the unavailable Alex Davies.

The two sides will do it all again at the Oaktree Arena on Friday, September 28 (7.30pm). The second leg in Newcastle is scheduled for Sunday, September 30.
As a result of the rearranged cup fixture, the Rebels have been forced to put back the date of their first Premier League play-off match.
That match will now take place at the Oaktree Arena on Friday, October 5 (7.30pm) with the opposition still to be confirmed.
