Having staged a terrific comeback from fourteen points down to win the 2003 Elite League Knockout Cup the Pirates became very precious about the trophy and were determined to retain it in 2004.

That mission shone through as they disposed of Peterborough early season in the quarter finals earning them the opportunity to race against Wiltshire neighbours Swindon nearly six months later! A 61-30 Wimborne Road thrashing of the Robins gave Poole a healthy first leg lead that was efficiently defended despite  going down 40-53 at Blunsdon just 24 hours later. At the same time Ipswich were securing a semi-final double over Arena Essex (Lakeside) to set up a clash with Pirates.

This coming Wednesday (15th July) in association with Speedway Portal and with the co-operation of ReRun Productions, speedway fans will have the opportunity to follow the first leg of that final, staged at Foxhall Heath, Ipswich on October 21st 2004.

The Witches line-up consisted of Hans Andersen, Danny Bird, Jesper B.Monberg, their present day promoter Chris Louis, Scott Nicholls, 2020 Pirate Danny King and Kim Jansson whilst the Pirates had a strong Scandinavian make up of Bjarne Pedersen (1), Antonio Lindback (4) , Daniel Davidsson (6) and Magnus Zetterstrom (7) augmented by Krzysztof Kaszprzak (2), the late Matej Ferjan (3) and Ryan Sullivan (5).

The Premiere streaming of this meeting goes out at 7.30pm on Wednesday night.
