The weekends sad incidents have added nothing to the goodwill of Mildenhall, their fans, riders and sponsors.
In reflection the whole matter should have been handled differently, with the overall good of the sport very much at the core of our decisions.
However we have to accept that Cradley applied the rules in a correct manner, and whatever our personal opinions were, we should have applied correct business principals.
We were under the opinion that Cradley were asked to re-consider our decision to call off the meeting, this has proven not to be the case.
Speedway and the overall well being of the League is paramount, and Mldenhall will now work hard to restore the publics faith in our team and the sport.
We have spent the past hours reflecting on the events and everyone can be assured that Mildenhall will resurrect from this weekend with a fresh and positive approach to the future
Cradley Meeting Off - Club Statement
Mildenhall speedway would like to apologise to Officials, riders and supporters of both clubs for this afternoons meeting being called off.
Following a recent build up of personal and club issues over recent weeks, club promoter Kevin Jolly made a ‘heat of the moment’ decision this morning that he regretted straight away. He immediately made efforts to correct the situation, but his offers were sadly declined.
He will now be taking a brief rest from the sport but hopes to return for the meeting on Sunday 17th July when the Isle of Wight are due to visit West Row. No further statement will be made at this time.
‘KJM’ Fen Tigers Look To Extend Home Win Sequence
This Sunday sees the eagerly awaited clash between the Mildenhall ‘KJM’ Fen Tigers and the Cradley Heathens. In recent seasons these clashes have been highly tense affairs and with both sides looking to make their push into the play-off places this season will surely be no different.
Both teams have strong home records but are yet to win away, Cradley arriving on the back of four straight away defeats whilst the Fen Tigers have been getting closer to that elusive away victory following a two point defeat at Kent and a one point reversal at the Isle of Wight on Tuesday. Tuesday night went down to the wire with a Heat 15 match race between Fen Tigers No 1 Connor Mountain and the Islanders No 1 Ex-Fen Tiger Joe Jacobs to decide the outcome.
