Adams: 'We can do well in Trophy'

MILDENHALL Funky Catering Fen Tigers roar back in to home action this coming Sunday (4pm) as the Buxton Hitmen come to West Row in a National Trophy fixture, but before that they travel to Plymouth to meet the Devils in the same competition tonight.

The much-changed Fen Tigers are now considerably stronger with the additions of James Birkinshaw, who returns to the side after missing the trip to Bournemouth with illness, and Australian Taylor Poole, who has amassed 17 points in two meetings on tracks he had never seen before, are looking to round the season off in style.

The National League Trophy is something that team boss John Adams sees his side doing well in: “I really think we can do well in this competition and I am looking for us to win all our remaining home fixtures and maybe pick up the odd win away as well, we have a young vibrant team who will excite supporters wherever we go.”

Adams continued: “Plymouth are very strong at home but we will be pushing them hard this time, we were there the other week so know what to expect and the riders should be dialled in as a couple of them had never seen the place before.

“We also have Taylor (Poole) riding who was not in the team on our last visit so we should stronger so I am looking for us to keep it tight there. As for Buxton we do owe them one after slipping up at home against them earlier in the season but they have a good side so we will not be going into that match taking them lightly.”

Sussex-based Fen Tigers reserve Nick Laurence, who has made rapid strides since having second half practices earlier in the season and was promoted to the team earlier this season, is now a Mildenhall asset having been offered a contract by the club.

Assistant team manager Blayne Scroggins said: “I am really pleased for Nick, he is a rider that stood out for me in early season practices and Academy League matches, it is great that he has become a Fen Tigers asset, this is what this club has to be about bringing on riders like him, looking after them and getting them in to the main team when they are good enough.”

Mildenhall: 1. Barrie Evans (cpt), 2. Ollie Rayson, 3. Luke Priest, 4. Joe Jacobs, 5. James Birkinshaw, 6. Nick Laurence, 7. Taylor Poole.
