King’s Lynn Stars hoping to sign off miserable campaign with a home win
Dale Allitt has challenged his side to end a tough year on a high with a win over Rye House on Wednesday night (7.30pm).
The Stars will bring the curtain down on their miserable campaign as the Rockets visit the Adrian Flux Arena.
Allitt says they already have one eye on bouncing back in 2018, and he believes one more victory would set them up nicely for the winter break.
Allitt said: “It’s been a difficult year for the club for a number of reasons, and for me personally as well.
“But it’s the last meeting of the season, and we’ll be looking to go out with a win to set us up nicely for 2018.
“This season hasn’t panned out the way we’d hoped, but we can at least start planning for next season and focusing on making it a much better year.”
King’s Lynn will be without both Tomas H Jonasson and Nicklas Porsing due to the Swedish play-offs, with rider replacement at number three and Simon Lambert coming in at reserve.
Stars owner Keith Chapman has moved to repay loyal fans by offering money back for supporters who were left short of racing at recent double headers.
Those who were present at the Wolverhampton meetings on August 23 can claim a £5 refund on production of their entry ticket. And the August 31 double header which saw the Rye House clash in the second half washed out sees fans entitled to £8 back – again on production of their entry ticket. Season ticket holders have been invited to a VIP experience.
Said Chapman: “We are trying to repay them in some way and we hope to see them all on Wednesday when we are hoping to sign off the season with a win. Yes, it’s been eventful and turbulent at times but we are now looking to start building for next season.”
Stars are hoping to be at full strength, although there are still doubts over Tomas H Jonasson.
Stars: Robert Lambert, Kai Huckenbeck, Tomas H Jonasson R/R, Thomas Jorgensen, Michael Palm Toft, Josh Auty, Simon Lambert.
Rye House: Scott Nicholls, Ben Barker, Ricky Wells, Krzysztof Kasprzak, Chris Harris, Stuart Robson, Ben Morley.
