Poor weekend for Fen Tigers

MILDENHALL Art and Stitch Fen Tigers suffered a double disappointment at the weekend as they were beaten twice in as many days as they went down at Rye House and then at home to Kings Lynn in their first two meetings of 2010.

MILDENHALL Art and Stitch Fen Tigers suffered a double disappointment at the weekend as they were beaten twice in as many days as they went down at Rye House and then at home to Kings Lynn in their first two meetings of 2010.

With both Rye House and Kings Lynn already having raced before the Fen Tigers looked ring rusty as they struggled to find the correct set ups and race sharpness to compete with their local rivals.

At Rye they went down 60 – 31 with Luke Priest heading the scoring with a commendable 14 points and on Sunday they battled gamely but went down by seven points 43 -50 to a solid Kings Lynn team lead by former favourite James Brundle with British U18 Champ Jerran Hart top scoring for the Fenmen.

Team Manager John Adams said” It was disappointing to lose both meetings but I thought we were gradually getting better as Sunday’s meeting progressed and I really do believe that we are just lacking that vital race sharpness especially out of the start, Barrie had problems with his first machine so he had to ride his spare bike for some of the meeting so I am not unduly worried at the moment as I know we are much better than those performances suggest.”
