Far from funky effort by Tigers
MILDENHALL Funky Catering Fen Tigers crashed to a surprising home defeat on Sunday as they went to a 10 point defeat against the Newport Hornets.It was a very flat performance by the home team which lack very few positives and infact their supporters only had two race wins to cheer and when their favourites did make the gate they seemed to be passed at will by the men from Wales.
MILDENHALL Funky Catering Fen Tigers crashed to a surprising home defeat on Sunday as they went to a 10 point defeat against the Newport Hornets.
It was a very flat performance by the home team which lack very few positives and infact their supporters only had two race wins to cheer and when their favourites did make the gate they seemed to be passed at will by the men from Wales.
Newport with veteran Tony Atkin in fine form, new Aussie whizz kid Todd Kurtz wowing the fans with his fast all action style and with these two ably supported by Ryan Sedgmen the Fen Tigers had little in reply.
David Mason returned to form with a paid 13 point haul from 5 rides but with Barrie Evans having a very rare off day and Dean Felton struggling after recently being laid low with a virus the men from Suffolk struggled to get on parity with their opponents.
Team Boss John Adams said “Full credit to Newport they were more aggressive and seemed to want it more than us, we maybe were a little complacent and turned up expecting to win but we will learn from this and will try and make sure it does not happen again”
The next action at West Row is in two weeks on the 5th July when highflying Bournemouth come to town which will certainly be another tough test for the Fen Tigers.
