The Mildenhall Fen Tigers proudly sponsored by Manchetts Rescue and Recovery ran riot this afternoon against the previously unbeaten Plymouth Gladiators recording a massive 61-29 victory.

All seven Fen Tigers scored at least a paid win in a high quality, all round team performance which saw them record seven maximum heat advantages. For Plymouth only Ben Wilson and Nathan Stoneman were at the races with 9 and 10 respectively.

Danny Ayres threw down the gauntlet with a heat one victory in less than half a second outside the track record. Reserves Elliot Kelly and Macauley Leek then combined for a 5-1 in heat two as they collected paid 21 between them from their afternoon’s efforts. The engine room of Jason Edwards and Charlie Brooks were both in fine form, Edwards his usual stylish self, whilst Brooks after a first ride fall reeled off three heat wins including a highly impressive pillar to post victory over the charging Stoneman. The returning Matt Marson and David Wallinger also contributed decent scores, Marson improving throughout the meeting to finish unbeaten in his last two rides and Wallinger scoring paid 8 from his first three rides before coming off worse in a battle for third place with Stoneman in heat thirteen.

Speaking after the meeting Team Manager Malcolm Vasey was pleased with his charges, he said “Today we managed to turn our performance in the later part of last weeks meeting into a full fifteen heat performance. Every rider was on their game and it was particularly pleasing to see our reserves scoring so well. Elliot and Macauley have both impressed me greatly with their effort and skill and should be a match for any reserve pairing in our league. If I have to pick a highlight it was seeing Charlie looking so impressive and smooth, he is a rider of great potential and fully deserved the chance in heat fifteen.

We must move on though as meetings are coming quickly for us, and look to take the momentum of todays win into tomorrows trip to Cradley for our opening league fixture. It will not be easy as they are a decent looking side, but we have the team to challenge them and to bring back something from the meeting”
