CLUB NEWS: 3 Stars riders in action at Somersham

Norwich Stars had 3 riders in action at the Somersham Open on Saturday June 12, none of whom were originally scheduled to ride but due to a gap in the programme in the Open event and withdrawals in the Veterans event all 3, who offered to ride, had their offers taken up. Jamie Medler filled the gap in the 1st Open Semi-Final where he finished tied for 9th with 11 points which meant a place in the Open Consolation Final where he finished 9th with 12 points.

In the Veterans event Paddy Wenn was called up to replace Leicester rider Mark Whitehead and finished tied for 8th which included a race win in heat 10. Steve Copping, who was 1st in line to replace any rider who withdrew, replaced John Evans but could only score 7 points on his former track, his cause not helped by it being his first cycle speedway event since March 2020

The Stars are next in action as a team on Sunday 20th June in the final round of the Norfolk League at Hethersett where the Senior match between the Stars, Hethersett & Spixworth starts at 1pm and the Youth match between the Hawks and the Stars follows at 3pm
