Mildenhall Fen Tigers are hoping for Four Team success on Sunday at the National League Four Team Tournament, at Coventry, 3pm start.

The Fen Tigers last won this event during their all-conquering 2012 Grand Slam season, and will be all out to bring the trophy back to Mildenhall once again.

They have been drawn in Group B, along with Cradley, Rye House and Kent.

Both groups look equally strong and it will be a battle from start to finish to gain one the two available spots from each group in the final.

Team Manager Robert Henry has chosen Danny Halsey, Connor Coles, Connor Mountain and Jack Kingston to represent the Fen Tigers and promoter Kevin Jolly feels they have a good chance of victory.
