Contrasting fortunes for Fenmen
Mildenhall Art and Stitch Fen Tigers inconsistent start to 2010 continued as they slipped to defeat at home again at the weekend going down 41 -49 (Agg78 – 107) as they bowed out of the Cup at the first hurdle to Buxton in a disappointing match at West Row.
MILDENHALL Art and Stitch Fen Tigers inconsistent start to 2010 continued as they slipped to defeat at home at the weekend going down 41 -49 (Agg78 – 107) as they bowed out of the Cup at the first hurdle to Buxton, but then won at Dudley on Tuesday evening.
The Fen Tigers never really got in to the match with only guest Darren Mallett and battling Ollie Rayson shining for the Fenmen.
The Fen Tigers were unlucky however when Rayson was harshly excluded for unfair riding when impressive Aussie Nick Morris bit the dust after the teenager went by him in heat 8 and Captain Barrie Evans ground to a halt a few races later while leading.
Team Manager John Adams said” Today was a real disappointment as we at least needed to win the meeting as the 21 point deficit would have been a big hurdle to overcome but losing at home was not an option.”

Evans, the returning Jerran Hart and Joe Jacobs lead the way all recording double figures and ably backed up by Rayson and Luke Priest the Fen Tigers came away 44 – 46 victors.
