CLUB NEWS: Hethersett’s disjointed start to 2018 continues

Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators have had their disjointed start to the season further affected by the wether with the track unfit for Sunday’s home fixture with Kesgrave after two days of rain.

This is not the ideal preparation for this coming weekend’s European Club Championships in Wolverhampton, where the Hawks are taking on the best teams in the UK and Poland.

Eight Hethersett riders did fair better on Saturday competing in wet conditions at the picturesque Somersham circuit in Suffolk, where the U10s finished fourth in the Little League and the older Juniors and Girls finished third in the Youth & Junior League section.

Star turn was Shaun Kell, who dropped just one point in his heats and finished third in his grand prix final. Charlie Lyth also made an impressive debut in competitive racing while Paul Delaiche and Daniel Longlands impressed in a couple of races each, Glyn Morgan finished third in the Senior grand prix final.
