HITMEN v MILDENHALL - PREVIEW

Saturday August 04, 2018
BUXTON entertain table topping Mildenhall Fen Tigers in the Travel Plus National League at Hi-Edge Raceway on Sunday afternoon, 3pm.

The Hitmen will again use rider replacement for the now retired James Cockle in what is otherwise unchanged side.

Mildenhall will be led into action by 15-year old teenager Drew Kemp who turns sixteen shortly and has become the Tigers number 1 and he will be well supported by Ryan Kinsley, Josh Bailey, Danny Ayres and returning from injury skipper Jordan Jenkins providing a powerhouse top five. At reserve the Fen men have Matt Marsen and Sam Bebee completing the Tigers septet.

The Tigers have won all of their opening eight league matches so far with the Hitmen having failed to pick up a point in their opening six matches and team manager Joshua Moss commented “I’m under no illusions that this is going to be an almighty ask for the lads but we have a good tour of the Isle of Wight and Plymouth and have a brilliant atmosphere with all the team and we will be trying our best. Connor (Coles) has come back and did a great job last week and it’s great to have him back in the line-up. Corban Pavitt is also getting back to fitness and Ben Wilson and Tom Woolley are a force to be reckoned wit around their home track so we will see how things go.”
