Subject to BSPA approval the Mildenhall Fen Tigers, proudly sponsored by Manchetts Rescue and Recovery, are pleased to announce their first two riders for 2020.

It’s a big welcome back as their new No 1 and Captain for the 2020 season RYAN KINSLEY. Ryan is back home following a season in the Championship with Scunthorpe where he rode with great credit achieving a real time 3.17 average. He also answered an SOS call from the Fen Tigers late in the season when Danny Ayres was injured and immediately showed he had lost none of his skill and style around the Mildenhall circuit with an immaculate fifteen point maximum in the defeat of the Kent Kings. Ryan had previously been part of the fine 2018 Fen Tigers septet. A surprise signing for some Ryan quickly became a fans favourite upping his average by over three points and riding at No 1 for part of the season. He also undertook the Captain role in Jordan Jenkins absence.

Speaking about his return to Mildenhall, Kinsley said “This is like home for me and I am so happy to be back at Mildenhall as No 1 and as Captain. It is an honour to be captain and one I will take very seriously. The chance to work again with the management team at Mildenhall is fantastic for me and with the team they have put together it should be a really good season for us. We have a wonderful fanbase at Mildenhall and I can’t wait for the meetings to start now, I know if I can perform well for the Fen Tigers my chances of getting back into the Championship can only increase”

The second name on the Fen Tigers team sheet is another popular rider returning ‘home’. After starting his career at Mildenhall LUKE RUDDICK returns after two seasons away. Luke spent the 2019 season with Edinburgh in the Championship and Leicester in the National League. Like Ryan Kinsley, Luke impressed greatly at Edinburgh posting a real time average of 3.08 before injury curtailed his season. In the National League with Leicester he rode in four meetings only but was heading for an 8+ average when his season ended. The fast starting Ruddick comes into the Mildenhall line up on a potentially ‘false’ 6.67 average and now fully fit and already practicing in the weeks leading up to Christmas the Mildenhall management are confident they have signed a rider on the way up and on a very attractive average.

Speaking about his return, Ruddick said “A couple of seasons back I felt the need to move on and challenge myself at a different track, but Mildenhall was always a special place for me and I am very pleased to get the opportunity to return for the 2020 season. I feel I have learnt a lot and improved since I have been away and want to show the great Fen Tigers fans how far I have come. My time at Edinburgh taught me so much and as well as hopefully helping the Fen Tigers to success I want to put myself in the shop window should opportunities become available in the Championship”
