Rain halts Fen Tigers’ Trophy charge

Mildenhall Fen Tigers 24, Stoke Potters 6 National League Trophy (Abandoned Rain) - Result does not stand

MILDENHALL Fen Tigers were left frustrated by the weather, as an unexpected deluge led to their National Trophy clash with Stoke being abandoned after five heats at West Row.

The home side were heading towards a huge win having already wracked up four 5-1s and a 4-2, when the heavens opened. “It’s frustrating, but typical of the season the whole sport has had to endure,” mulled Mildenhall co-promoter Michael Lee.

The meeting will be re-staged this Friday (19th October) with a 7.30pm start. It means Mildenhall have now had to abandon plans to stage the Bernie Klatt Memorial Trophy individual meeting planned for that night.

The club have also announced that after further talks with West Row’s owners, that if the Fen Tigers qualify, they can now stage the second leg of the Grand Final against Dudley, on Wednesday 24th October. “We were concerned that the only date available seemed to be 31st October,” said Lee, “which would have left us no where to go if that meeting was rained off. Now if we reach the final, at least we have another option.”
