Peterborough Panthers v Lakeside Hammers.

The two clubs have agreed to meet home and away on Sunday September 23 – but Panthers fans should note that the ‘away’ leg will take place at Rye House rather than the Arena-Essex Raceway.

The Hammers will be leaving their established venue, which is set to close to motorsport at the end of the year, in mid-month and switching to Hoddesdon.

The first leg will take place in Hertfordshire at lunchtime, with an evening return at the East of England Arena. Exact times are to be confirmed once all logistics have been finalised.

The news also means the ‘away’ leg of Panthers’ KO Cup semi-final against the Hammers on Saturday September 29 will take place at Rye House as well.

The remaining outstanding meeting between the clubs is the away league fixture, and this has been arranged for Saturday September 8. This meeting will take place at the Arena-Essex Raceway.
