Another scintillating display from the ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers saw them claim a 31 point victory against the Stoke ‘Potters’ this afternoon as they extended their unbeaten record to eleven in the National League.

Heat one saw a stunning ride from Drew Kemp as the youngster celebrated his sixteenth birthday in style missing out on the West Row track record by the smallest of margins 0.02 seconds! With Ryan Kinsley tucking in for second the Fen Tigers were up and running. A nasty looking clash between the Stoke reserves in heat two cost the visitors the services of the unlucky Joe Alcock who damaged his collarbone again after just returning from the same injury, and with his partner excluded the Mildenhall reserves took a straightforward 5-0 in the rerun. High class team riding from Josh Bailey and Jordan Jenkins in heat three saw another 5-1 as the Fen Tigers moved 15-2 ahead, before Sam Bebee produced a moment that had the crowd on their feet as he swept through inside Max Clegg on bend four to join Danny Ayres for another 5-1.

Heat five saw a nasty crash for Josh Bailey and another knock on the ribs for the unlucky racer. Heat six saw another 5-1 from Kemp and Kinsley before Ayres had a second flying pillar to post victory in heat seven! Although battered Bailey bravely kept going and combined with Jenkins again in heat nine for another 5-1 before Kemp unfortunately packed up when well clear in heat ten, his partner Kinsley coming through for victory as the Fen Tigers went into the interval 43-16 ahead. After the interval Matt Marson produced a superb ride to sweep around Connor Coles and Adam Extance to join Ayres for another 5-1, before Bailey completed a fine afternoon’s work in heat twelve with another win. Heat thirteen saw Stoke gain their first heat win with Clegg leading home Ayres, with Kemp unluckily suffering more bike problems. Captain Jenkins produced a great ride in fourteen as he tried to team ride home Marson for another 5-1 and the pair nearly succeeded before David Wallinger managed to split the two on the final lap.

Another win from Clegg in heat fifteen spoilt both Kinsley’s and Jenkins maximums but Kevin Jolly was pleased with another good day at the office, he said “The lads just keep producing more every meeting and every one of them today had moments to remember. Stoke may not have been the hardest opposition we will meet this season but the attitude of the team and their will to win is just spot on. If it hadn’t of been for a couple of bits of misfortune today we may have hit 70 points!

We head to the Isle of Wight and Plymouth in a confident mood and following conversations between the riders and management will operate rider replacement for Drew. The lads are so solid and together we all feel we have the quality within the six riders to cover his absence”
