Lewis Kerr is hoping he’s kick-started his season after putting in a superb display as to score 11 points against Peterborough on Thursday night.
The Witches’ number three came into the season having not raced since suffering a serious head injury in a track crash at the start of August, but a superb display of gating and impressive speed saw him pick up three wins in the Witches’ 48-42 win at Foxhall.
Having understandably taken a few meetings to find his feet, Kerr was delighted with Thursday’s display and is now setting about the task of ensuring he’s a dominant force on the Foxhall track.
“I’m easing my way in, I’d had such a long lay-off last year but hopefully this is the start of things to come,” he said.
“I still feel exactly the same as I did before the accident but maybe having had so much longer off the bike I was maybe a little bit rusty.

“Thursday was great but hopefully I can keep it up, it was only my second home meeting for Ipswich and it was a strong Peterborough side we beat.
“Hopefully I will be on my way now, I’ve always liked the track (at Foxhall) and have done well there so there are plenty of good memories.

“For a Premier League track it’s known to be one of the more grippy tracks so if we can get the home advantage then that would be great.”
