Mildenhall Fen Tigers v Sheffield Tigers


Mildenhall 44 Sheffield 46

27th August at West Row Suffolk

Excellent Premier League speedway at the home of the fen tigers slightly spoilt by poor refereeing which in the end led to defeat for Mildenhall.

The big contoversy of the meeting came in the 2nd heat the reserves race. Jordan Frampton was hit from behind by Benji Compton who was clearly out of control and was never going to make it round the bend but to the amazement of everyone in the stadium the referee gave the decisio the other way and excluded the mildenhall rider. This decision alone was enough to cost the Fen Tigers the result.

On reflection Sheffield rode more as a team and everyone contributed showing their strength in depth. Ashworth, Compton, Sanchez and Legault all contibuted wheras for Mildenhall in the main the points came from just Lyons and Daniel King who rode a perfect 5 wins and was man of the match.
