EASTBOURNE continued their recent revival with a fourth straight home win - this time 53-40 against local rivals Lakeside.

Simon Gustafsson was the Eagles’ hero with wins in the last two races as the home side secured all three points against the Elite League’s third-placed team.

And Slovenian star Matej Zagar delighted the crowd by overhauling former Eastbourne man Lee Richardson for second place in an exciting Heat 15.

Eagles co-promoter Mike Bellerby said: “The supporters, along with ourselves have witnessed a superb night of entertainment - a close, no quarter given meeting and of course the right result for the Eagles.

“Thanks to our ‘Kids for a Quid’ offer in collaboration with The Argus, to whom we again give our grateful thanks, the crowd was significantly up on last week’s attendance and certainly within sustainable levels.

“The final two races were right out of the top drawer and to coin a phrase ‘worth the admission money alone’ and they had everybody on their feet. The crowd have gone home happy, with only positives to draw upon, we couldn’t be happier and on this sort of form we certainly believe that we could be a match for anyone, and anywhere.”
