Following a difficult few weeks that has seen their interest in the KO Cup end and the loss of the National Trophy, the Mildenhall Fen Tigers proudly sponsored by Manchetts Rescue and Recovery have made two changes, pending BSPA approval, to their septet as they look to reignite their season.

In comes Somerset reserve Henry Atkins from the Championship to give the Fen Tigers a much needed boost in the second heat leader berth. Atkins has impressed the Mildenhall management previously and is a rider very much on the up in his career. Henry will join the Fen Tigers on a 6.90 average and will make his debut next Saturday (22nd June) at Stoke. Due to the tight points limit this season the fall out of this signing has left the club needing to let Macauley Leek go in order to remain within the points limit. Leek’s position will be taken by Arran Butcher who comes in on a 2.00 average after impressing in a recent second half and is a rider the club feel has potential to score valuable points at reserve after showing promise last season.

Speaking about the changes Mildenhall General Manager Phil Kirk said “It is never easy to tell riders we are letting them go, but we felt we had to act now to bring life to a season that was starting to drift a little. Henry (Atkins) is a rider we have always thought could be a Mildenhall rider one day and we are confident that he can produce the big performances as our second heat leader that will get us the points we have been lacking away from home especially. He has Championship experience with Somerset and is raring to go for us. Macauley was unlucky but a victim of the points available this season and it was a decision we didn’t want to make but had no option if we were to strengthen the top end.

We would like to thank both David Wallinger and Macauley Leek for all their efforts for the club and wish them the very best for the future. Hopefully both riders will quickly get fixed up elsewhere”
