King’s Lynn Stars’ Elite League clash against Rye House was postponed due to a waterlogged track.

The heavy rain in the morning and more inclement weather forecast for the rest of the day saw Rye House decide to postponed the meeting and a new date will be announced in due course.

The Stars are next in action on Friday night away at Belle Vue before another trip on Monday evening to Wolverhampton.

The Stars’ next meeting at the Adrian Flux Arena is against Leicester next Wednesday when anything but victory against the Elite League basement boys would end their faint hopes of making the play-offs.

It has been a troubled campaign for the Stars with owner Buster Chapman instigating a shake-up of his line-up which saw both Chris Holder and Troy Batchelor leave.

The new line-up are yet to taste victory with their latest loss against Somerset on Monday coming live in front of the BT Sport cameras.

Latest from the EDP

A mother has dedicated her debut novel to the memory of her daughter, who died in a car crash on her way to school. Terri Wyatt, from Corton, took an early retirement from her job as a bank manager to write ‘The Baptist Gospel’, a crime thriller that sees a priest make a shocking discovery about the origins of Christianity. Mrs Wyatt’s daughter, Abbi-Lee Sherratt, died in 2001 at the age of 13 following a collision on her way to the former Great Yarmouth High School. The sudden loss of Abbi led to Mrs Wyatt falling out of love with reading, before a recommendation from a friend not only led to her rediscovering her passion, but also contemplating penning a book of her own. “Losing Abbi changed my life completely,” said Mrs Wyatt. “I always used to be a big reader but then I suddenly had no interest at all. “A friend of mine recommended that I read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and I loved it. From that moment I started reading more and more crime thrillers and thought ‘that’s exactly the type of book I’d like to write.’ “I didn’t have much writing experience but they say everyone has a book in them. Although I’m not sure how true it is, I took an early retirement at the end of the 2014 and set about doing my research.” Three-and-a-half years and 150,000 words later, Mrs Wyatt finally completed her novel two months ago after an extensive process of thorough research to ensure the accuracy of its historical and biblical references. Set in various locations and during different historical periods, the book has been independently published by its author and is now available for readers to buy from Amazon. Mrs Wyatt describes her debut effort as “Val McDermid meets Dan Brown” and has been delighted with the feedback she has received so far for her venture into uncharted territory. “It’s been great to get some really positive reviews, especially as it’s so difficult for new writers to get any publicity without the backing of a publisher. “Abbi’s death is something that changed my life and I really do think she was with me on the journey of writing this book.” The Baptist Gospel is available to purchase via the Amazon Kindle Store.
