Lions visit attracts first website meeting sponsor.

For tomorrow's visit of Leicester Lion Cubs to Mildenhall for the second leg of their Knock-Out Cup clash all our website news, diary and home page updates, links and graphics on this site will, for he first time this season, will be sponsored.
Prior to any fixtures being announced Phil and Sue Spence had already decided to sponsor Elliot to the tune of £25 towards his expenses in whatever his principle team's home fixtures were on the dates nearest to their respective birthdays. Phil's is next Thursday, 30 May, whilst Sue's is on 21 July. Purely by coinsidence Leicester will be visitors on both occasions, which is quite apt as they were both ardent followers of the Lions in their Blackbird Road days and the Lions new base is still their nearest track.
The Manchetts Rescue and Recovery sponsored Fen Tigers know it will be no easy task to overturn a twenty-one point deficit against a strong Cubs septet led by Danyon Hume, Ellis Perks and ex-Fen Tiger Luke Ruddick but home boss Malcolm Vasey is convinced his team are up for the challenge and still fancy their chances of making it through to face either either Plymouth or Stoke in the Final.

Mildenhall Fen Tigers:
1.Danny Ayres, 2.Matt Marson, 3.David Wallinger, 4.Charlie Brooks, 5.Jason Edwards, 6.Elliot Kelly, 7.Macauley Leek

Mildenhall's Trophy hopes hit by home defeat.

Despite a faultless fifteen point maximum from Danny Ayres and eleven points from David Wallinger the Fen Tigers hopes of further consolidating their position at the top of their National Trophy group were derailed in a last heat decider, where the visiting Kings duo of Morley and Jenkins were content to finish in second and third places behind Ayres and keeping Wallinger in last place to secure a narrow, 41:43, away victory.
One of three riders who failed to complete heat two, Elliot's only points came in his third outing, where he earned two points for finishing in second place in heat eleven.

Victory at Plymouth gives Mildenhall clear lead in Trophy group.

Level at the top of their National Trophy group on points with their hosts going into this fixture, a solid all-round team effort, spearheaded by guest number one Max Clegg, saw them run out 41:49 winners to draw two points clear at the head of the table.
Another excellent score of eight, paid ten from five rides from Elliot and impressive scores from Charlie Brooks and Ryan Terry-Daley proved too much for the Gladiators to deal with.
