Palmer Trophy To Start 40th Season
The Fen Tigers will open their 40th Anniversary season with a look back into their past whilst simultaneously looking ahead to the future. After 34 years the Suffolk based club are proud to announce the return of the Palmer Trophy which will be held on Sunday 29th March at 3.30pm!
In the early days of the Fen Tigers history both Derek and Brian Palmer were great friends and supporters of Mildenhall Speedway sponsoring the first ever ‘Suffolk Open’ meeting in 1976. This meeting that drew the very best of a powerful National League to West Row became ‘The Palmer Trophy’ in 1978 and ran through to 1981. Previous winners are Mildenhall legends Bob Coles, Ray Bales and twice victorious Melvyn Taylor, along with Newcastle great Tom Owen and Rye House Rocket and 1975 Fen Tiger Cub Bob Garrad.
Team Sponsors For 2015!
Mildenhall Speedway are very pleased to announce that they will be known as the Mildenhall ‘KJM’ Fen Tigers for the 2015 season.
The tie up with Trevor Murkin of KJM as team sponsor is a continuation of the excellent relationship built up between KJM and the Club since Trevor first came on board as a club partner in 2012. KJM is a large road sweeper concern around the East Anglian region and have been supporting the Fen Tigers in various ways for a number of years.
