TWENTY-FOUR hours after Rye House's trip to Lincolnshire, the Silver Ski Rockets are back on home turf to face the Redcar Bears in more Premier League action.

The 2007 Young Shield winners are currently mid-table, but still targeting silverware in the shape of the Knock-Out Cup.

The Bears have a 50-39 first leg deficit against Scunthorpe to overturn on Thursday, August 13, in order to face King's Lynn in the final four.

Key to their hopes is fast developing Australian and team No.1 Ty Proctor.
