Hungate Rovers 2

Dersingham Rovers 11

Both sides played this game in a very good spirit, but it was Dersingham who were the stronger and ran out very comfortable winners.

The away side started well and scored at regular intervals but did concede two sloppy goals.

This meant at half-time the score was 5-2, which was a credit to Hungate who never gave up.

The second half was a more one-sided affair with Dersingham scoring another six goals without conceding any more.

Goals for Dersingham came from Will Woodhouse (4), Ben Welch (4), Jack McGee, Noah Handley and James Wicklam.

Overall another very good team performance by Dersingham, with outstanding efforts from Owen Desborough and James Wicklam who capped his performance with a good headed goal.

Next game is at home to Litcham on Sunday, 1.30pm kick-off.

Under 12

Downham Town Blues 8 Shouldham 0

Downham Town Blues had to play some good football to break down a hard-working Shouldham team.

Sam McDonnell gave Downham an early 2-0 lead with two fine finishes. Sam Lloyd made it 3-0 by half-time, pouncing on a rebound.

After the break, Lloyd got his second of the game, his persistence paying off when he chased down a through ball.

Ben Terry made it 5-0 with a great strike, before crossing for Harrison Brant to volley home the sixth.

Sam McDonnell completed a fantastic hat-trick with a 25-yarder, and Terry got the eighth, slotting home a Brant cross.

Shouldham were unlucky not to score and had several promising attacks, but a customary solid performance from Downham’s defence and goalkeeper Elliot Phillips earned another clean sheet.

Special mention goes to Joshua Grobelaar at left back who had his best game of the season so far.

King’s Lynn Stars will be represented by Chris Holder and Robert Lambert at the SGB Premiership Pairs at Somerset on Friday, March 31 (7.30).

The duo will link up together for the first time in Stars colours at The Oaktree Arena as they aim to bag some early season silverware.

Lynn boss Dale Allitt said: “We want to state our intentions right from the off and this is a great opportunity to do just that prior to our first league fixture.

“We’ve got the 2012 World Champion and one of the most exciting, young British riders we’ve seen for a long while now.

“While the line-up is looking pretty strong, I have every confidence that Chris and Rob will be strong contenders for the Pairs title.”

The speedway season gets underway at the Adrian Flux Arena on Sunday, March 26 (2pm) when Simon Lambert stages his testimonial.

The club’s Press and Practice event will take place on Wednesday, March 29 before opening their SGB Premiership campaign at home to Somerset on Wednesday, April 5.
