After a wet start to April has seen both the opening home fixtures for the Mildenhall Fen Tigers called off, everyone involved with the club is hoping that finally the season can get underway as they welcome the Plymouth Devils to West Row tomorrow, writes Phil Kirk.

The Devils arrive at Mildenhall led by two ex-Fen Tigers, Adam Roynon and James Cockle, and 2012 Fen Tiger Ryan Terry Daley. Missing from their line up will be teenage starlet Henry Atkins and the Devils will operate rider replacement in his absence.

Promoter Kevin Jolly said: “I have been impressed by what I have seen from our boys, I think there is so much potential in this team and they are capable of far more than what their averages are now. There is a hunger and desire that I’ve not heard in a team for a long while.

Fen Tigers Team: Josh Bailey 8.87, Sam Bebee 3.00, Jordan Jenkins (C) 7.19, Ryan Kinsley 4.53, Danny Ayres 8.38, Drew Kemp 3.00 and Matt Marson 3.00
