It’s the National Development League’s [NDL] big individual meeting today [Sunday 25th.] with the Mildenhall Fen Tigers – proudly sponsored by Manchetts Rescue and Recovery – represented in the NDL Riders Championship at Scunthorpe Speedway by Jason Edwards and Jack Kingston.

The third tier’s Riders’ Championship wasn’t held in either of the past two years due to the pandemic and was last won by a Mildenhall rider when Dan Halsey triumphed in 2014 and is Jason’s second NDLRC (having ridden in the rain affected meeting also at Scunthorpe in 2019) and a debut in the event for Jack. For the Fen Tigers’ skipper Edwards today marks his return to the track after suffering that bad knock to his shoulder three weeks ago.

The field sees three former champions at this event take to the Normanby Rd track: Kent Royals’ pairing Max Clegg & twice-winner Ben Morley and one-time Fen Tiger favourite, Adam Roynon (now representing Plymouth).

The two teams definitely joining reigning champs Mildenhall in the season-ending Play Offs, Leicester Lion Cubs and Berwick Bullets are represented respectively by the Thompson twins, Joe & Dan and by Luke Crang and Mason Watson. The fourth place in the Play Offs is still yet to be decided and is between Belle Vue and Oxford. The latter have former Mildenhall skipper Jordan Jenkins representing them alongside a rider who’s had a meteoric rise in 2022 from second halfer junior last year to GB U21 finalist his term, Jody Scott.  

The Colts from Manchester (who next week need to take at least a point from their final NDL fixture at Armadale to clinch their place in the Play Offs) are represented by Jack Smith and Harry McGurk. Talking of Armadale, the Scots have Lee Complin as one of their two representatives – Complin has been a hugely popular and respected visiting rider at West Row this term, as opponent and Guest and has to be a Dark Horse for the title at Scunthorpe this afternoon.

The action gets underway at 3pm at the Eddie Wright Raceway, Normanby Road, Scunthorpe, North Lincs DN15 8QZ.  There is also a live streaming service available for £11.99 at https://tvscunthorpe-speedway.com/
