King’s Lynn Young Stars were forced to withdraw from Sunday’s National League Fours at Coventry.
The Stebbings Car Superstore side had been reduced to just two available riders for the showpiece event and therefore were left with no option but to pull out of the meeting.
Team manager Dale Allitt explained: “We’re very disappointed to have to withdraw from Sunday’s meeting and we can only apologise to our supporters.
“Josh Bailey picked up a knock to his ankle racing for Scunthorpe at Ipswich on Thursday and he needs to rest it for a day or two longer.
“Tom Stokes is still under the weather with a virus and he’s just not ready to race yet.
“Shane Hazelden suffered a broken leg at Kent on Monday so that one speaks for itself.
“Ryan Kinsley was hurt in the same incident and was told on Monday to rest for at least seven days.
“Nathan Greaves was always scheduled to race for Sheffield at Newcastle in the Premier League so he was never an option anyway.
“That leaves us with just Scott Campos and Lewis Whitmore and you don’t have to be a genius to work out you can’t go to a fours meeting with two available riders!”
