MILDENHALL moved in to overdrive as they slammed 60 points passed Plymouth Sunday afternoon and moved within two points of leaders Newport at the top of the National League.

MILDENHALL moved in to overdrive as they slammed 60 points passed Plymouth Sunday afternoon and moved within two points of leaders Newport at the top of the National League.

It certainly was a field day for the Art and Stitch Fen Tigers with a paid maximum for No.1 Jerran Hart and double figures for both Barrie Evans and Joe Jacobs but it was reserve Nick Laurence who rally got the crowd going with a confidence boosting paid 9 points from his 4 rides.

Laurence who had been struggling for points finally got it right as first he pipped Jamie Pickard on the line and then was superbly shepherded home for his first win in his next outing by Captain Evans but saved his party piece until his 3rd race when passing Devils No.1 Mark Simmonds down the back straight to the delight of his team mates and Mildenhall fans alike and said” my confidence came flooding back after Barrie helped me get that first win and when I won my next ride I was really pleased, it was a great win for the team.”

Returning Matt Wright scored 5 points which included a win will certainly beef up the middle order of the team once his fully fit as he is still suffering from a hip injury suffered earlier in the season.
