It's a tail in the jungle for sure how Kent Speedway fans have been rallying together to pick a name for their new mascot: not just the TouchTec King of the Jungle but a master of all he surveys at Central Park and there by right Royal Appointment!
The competition, backed by SpecSavers, saw a terrific response with a pride of great names including Lennie (a nod there surely to Kings' promoter Len Silver), Luke (ditto to much-loved former skipper 'Bowen 747'!), Kenny, Kingsley and Kingston!
At the Swale Borough Council Planning Committee last night (Thursday 28th April) permanent planning consent was given to Kent Speedway at Central Park Stadium, meaning that the sport can now carry on indefinitely at the Stadium. *** UPDATES TO FOLLOW ***
