Robert Lambert has ensured King's Lynn will have at least one representative at this year's British final.

The Stars rider nabbed one of the seven qualifying slots up for grabs at Friday's semi-final in Scunthorpe. The 18-year-old scored 10 points in a meeting which was won by former Star Simon Stead on 13. Lambert's Lynn team-mates Carl Wilkinson (seven) and Simon Lambert (five) missed the cut.

Lewis Rose tried to become the club's second finalist at next month's showcase when he competed at Sunday's semi in Glasgow.

But the Lynn reserve could not do the same as he fell short of making the cut in Scotland.

The Stars rider scored five points from as many rides to finish three behind the seventh-placed rider, Ben Barker. Richard Lawson and Scott Nicholls top-scored with 13.
