A rare Saturday evening fixture starts off a busy weekend for the ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers when Stoke ‘A R Richards’ Potters are the visitors (7pm start).

The Fen Tigers will be missing Kyle Hughes who crashed out in only his second ride for his new team on Sunday (v Kent) and will now miss the remainder of the season, rider replacement will cover for Hughes. Also missing will be impressive debutant versus Kent, 15 year old Jordan Jenkins who will be on route to Belle Vue for Sunday’s British Youth Championship round. Jenkins is currently well placed in the Championship lying in third position behind Tom Brennan and Kyle Bickley. Joe Lawlor who guested for Mildenhall at Belle Vue early in the season will step into the vacant reserve berth in Jenkins absence.

Stoke feature ex Fen Tiger Ben Hopwood in their line up and will be looking to claim a rare victory after six defeats in their last seven fixtures! Following the National League meeting the ‘Stonefield Farm Shop’ Fen Tiger Cubs will race MK Knights in an MDL fixture as they continue their chase for a place in the MDL Play Off final.

The following day see’s one of the National League seasons biggest meetings as the Travel Plus National League Fours Final takes place at Coventry (Sunday 2.30pm start). The ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers quartet will be Jon Armstrong, Danny Halsey, Connor Coles and Alfie Bowtell. Cradley, Rye House and Kings Lynn will be the Fen Tigers opponents in Group A.

Kevin Jolly was in positive mood ahead of the weekend even with both line-ups weakened by the loss of Hughes, he said: “I was so proud of the lads on Sunday after a miraculous fightback against Kent, although the win was tempered by losing Kyle (Hughes). He will be a big miss on Saturday and with us having to utilise rider replacement the lads will again have to dig deep if we are to overcome Stoke. I have no doubt they are up to the task and that a good win on Saturday will carry them forward into Sunday where I feel we can have a real say in the outcome of the meeting”.

Mildenhall speedway received excellent news over the weekend that Connor Mountain has had his operation on his back and that it went well, he now starts on the road back to full health and fitness and the club look forward to seeing him soon.
