The Mildenhall Fen Tigers proudly sponsored by Manchetts Rescue and Recovery got their season back on track with a fine performance in Saturday’s National League 4’s followed up by a convincing home victory this afternoon against Stoke.

An exciting 4’s finals at Stoke saw the Fen Tigers ease their way into the finals winning their group impressively without running a last place. They continued this form into the finals where the meeting reached it’s crescendo with three sides all tied on thirteen points ( Mildenhall, Stoke and the Isle of Wight). A thrilling final heat saw Connor Coles just claim victory for Stoke with the Fen Tigers taking a very respectable third place.

Today’s meeting also produced some fine racing with all the Fen Tigers top five in strong form. Charlie Brooks pass on visiting guest Jordan Jenkins was a early highlight, before some excellent team riding in heat six bought the crowd to their feet. Coming from the outside gate Matt Marson swept past the returning David Wallinger to join Danny Ayres at the front, Ayres then proceeding to cover his partner all the way to the line. Ayres was on fire again in heat thirteen after for once missing the start he passed both Potters to join the flying Henry Atkins at the front to secure the victory. Stoke recorded just one heat advantage as the Fen Tigers ran out convincing 53-37 victors.

Speaking after the meeting Malcolm Vasey said “This has been our best weekend of the season. I was very pleased with the fours lads last night in the Fours, they rode well, supported each other throughout and fully deserved their place on the podium.

Our victory today showed we still have plenty to race for this season, the whole top five were excellent today and if we can maintain this level of performance the play offs are still on our radar. The signing of Henry Atkins has been very positive and we now look to have the fire power to take points from our travels. Both Charlie and Matt were particularly impressive today and this sort of scoring from our second strings is just what we need”
