King's Lynn have switched the date for their SGB Premiership 'B' fixture away at Rye House.

The Stars were initially due to travel to Hoddesdon on Saturday, July 29, but the fixture will now take place on Wednesday, August 9.

Stars boss Dale Allitt said: 'We're really grateful to Rye House for their assistance and willingness to switch the date for this meeting and a special thanks go to Steve Jensen and Peter Schroeck. The World Games will now be taking place across the original date and we would have been going there without Robert Lambert, Chris Holder and Kai Huckenbeck.

'Naturally missing three riders would have been a blow but fair play to Rye House, they're keen to have riders with the calibre of Rob and Chris on display for their paying public and home fans too. We had that Wednesday free as our home meeting against Somerset had been brought forward 48 hours for BT Sport television coverage.'
