Ipswich Witches play-off hopes are over after Plymouth Devils secured all four points at Rye House on Saturday night.
It means the Suffolk side ended the regular Premier League season in seventh place – their lowest position since they dropped into the League in 2011.
What remains for the Witches this season is yet to be seen, but the 16-lap Classic is a definite fixture. If no others are arranged it will be the first time the Witches have finished their season in September for many years.
Meanwhile Mildenhall won a last-heat decider 46-44 against Rye House in the National League at West Row yesterday afternoon.
Dan Halsey top-scored for the home side with a paid 14 points.
On Saturday night the Fen Tigers were crushed at Eastbourne in a double header, losing the National League meeting 66-24 and the National Trophy one straight after 66-26. Over the 30 heats of the two meetings, Mildenhall’s Connor Coles was the only heat winner – when he won heat nine of the Trophy clash.
