The ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers go into Sunday’s KO Cup Final 2nd leg drawing confidence from the incredible Play Off final of 2011, where for a last heat exclusion they could of overturned a twenty nine point deficit!

This time it is only twenty eight points but to add to that figure the Fen Tigers go into the meeting without Captain Jon Armstrong, Danny Halsey and now Connor Mountain. Mountains season is over following a recurrence of his recent shoulder injury after riding for Ipswich last evening. Kevin Jolly is again left to seek a replacement number one, whilst Alfie Bowtell comes in for Armstrong and the Fen Tigers continue to run R/R for Danny Halsey.

The Fen Tigers have though shown incredible spirit against the odds at times this season and promoter Kevin Jolly refuses to believe that the comeback to end all comebacks is not beyond his team, he said “We seem to be having nothing but bad luck at the moment, but the spirit is still very strong and we will go all out on Sunday from the off and see where it takes us. Sourcing number one riders at this stage of the year has proved almost impossible with many riders having packed up for the season but I am confident of finding a suitable replacement for Connor. To lose the three heat leaders you started the season with is almost unheard of but that is where we are and we have to get on with it. Hopefully our supporters will get behind the lads from the off and encourage a monumentaal performance from them”

Following the main event the ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers will close their season with their outstanding league fixture against the Isle of Wight. Entrance prices for Sunday are £18.00 for adults and concessions with children admitted for free. The gates open at 2.30pm ahead of the 30 heats on offer and following the Isle of Wight meeting there will be a firework display for fans. One of the clubs sponsors Stonefield Farm Shop will be handing out pumpkins to children prior to the meeting.
