NL Fours & Storm Meeting Details
This Friday (2nd October, 6.30pm start) the Fen Tigers travel to Central Park to take part in the 'Kent County Fours' along with Stoke, Eastbourne and hosts Kent. The Fen Tigers four will be Kyle Hughes (G), Connor Coles, Connor Mountain and Tom Bacon.
It has also been confirmed that Mildenhall's final meeting of the season will be on Sunday 25th October when the season is completed with a visit to Coventry for the re-running of the meeting that was abandoned back in late August. The meeting will start at 4pm and is another double header! Eastbourne will race Coventry first with the Fen Tigers due to follow that meeting.
Fen Tigers Stage Memorable Fight Back!
Fen Tigers highly promising youngster Connor Mountain capped a season of continued improvement in the final home meeting of 2015 with a sensational paid 20 points to lead his team from a twelve point deficit to a last heat victory.
The home side missing Jack Kingston (holiday) and having to draft in MDL rider Rob Watts into one of the reserve berths were under pressure from the start. A first heat fall from Captain Danny Halsey saw Luke Ruddick also come down, and with Halsey excluded and the heat awarded the Fen Tigers were immediately on the back foot. Things quickly went from bad to worse as the visiting reserves raced to an impressive 5-1 victory in heat two to take an early six point advantage. Two drawn heat followed with the visiting riders Tony Atkin and then Ryan Blacklock taking the chequered flag, and the Fen Tigers remained six in arrears and without a heat winner! Heat five saw Connor Mountain change that statistic and with partner Connor Coles tucking into third the margin was reduced by two points to four. A second fall for Halsey in heat six saw a second 5-1 of the afternoon for the visitors as Tom Bacon struggled to make an impression off 15 metres after a second tape offence of the meeting.
