National Trophy Mildenhall Fen Tigers 57 Kent Kings 33

Mildenhall Fen Tigers made it three National Trophy wins in four days as their impressive start to the 2018 continued.

Devoid of track action because of the weather so far this season, Kevin Jolly’s side have enjoyed three stunning victories – away at Isle of Wight, Plymouth and then this afternoon at West Row against Kent.

It has put them top of their National Trophy table.

Skipper Jordan Jenkins roared to a 15-point maximum against the Kings as the whole team produced another solid performance.

On a hot afternoon, Mildenhall took an early grip on the meeting and never let off.

Josh Bailey and Sam Beebee got the home side off to a perfect 5-1 start, while Jenkins and Ryan Kinsley repeated the dose in heat three after Kings’ Nathan Stoneman fell.
