It’s not only the greyhounds that have to wear face coverings currently at Yarmouth Stadium, one of, if not the, first sporting venue in the UK to be allowed to readmit spectators, after the Covid19 lockdown.
Once racing behind closed doors was permitted, with the racing accessible online, hope that the East Anglian Greyhound would be run became a possibility.
The competition has featured every year since racing re-commenced at the Stadium in 1947, after the second World War. It would have been a major disappointment had Covid-19 ended the sequence, this year’s is the seventy fourth running. Once Racing Post Greyhound TV came on board as sponsor, the event was on.
