King’s Lynn Stars’ Premiership clash against Somerset Rebels on Wednesday evening has been postponed.

With England taking on Croatia in the semi-finals of the football World Cup the decision has been taken to rearrange the meeting for later in the season. A new date will be announced in due course.

Meanwhile, the Stars have moved to clarify the discount available to fans, who attended last Wednesday’s abandoned clash with Leicester.

The meeting was called to a halt nine races short and the result does not stand after serious leg injuries to Stars racer Lewis Kerr and a shoulder injury for Kasper Andersen. As a consequence fans producing their readmission ticket from Wednesday at a future Stars meeting will be given a £9 discount in accordance with the standard policy of £1 off per heat lost. In addition, the decision has been taken to have two ambulances at future meetings to avoid delays in the event of crashes and injuries which require hospital attention.
