Stand-in team manager Dale Allitt signed off his time in charge of the King’s Lynn Roger Warnes Transport Stars with a 50-43 home victory over the Belle Vue Aces on Wednesday night.

After the meeting, Allitt said: “I am pleased to be able to sign off my time in charge with a victory.

“The boys improved from last Friday’s defeat (at Lakeside) and produced a solid display to get all the league points.”

Allitt was pleased with the return to form of Kenneth Bjerre, who top-scored with 11, paid 12, points.

“With Kenneth scoring well it took the pressure off the rest of the team a little bit, but there is still some room for improvement. I think our reserves Lewis (Kerr) and Ashley (Morris) were unlucky tonight, their totals are not a true reflection on how they rode.

“I can now hand the team back over to Rob (Lyon) knowing that the boys have put some good points on the board and we remain unbeaten at home this year. For me I am concentrating on the Young Stars now and I am looking forward to the season starting.”

A reminder that the Stebbings Car Superstore Lynn Young Stars will hold their Press and Practice today (Friday).

The gates will open at noon and after pictures and interviews fans will be able to then watch the riders take to the track.

Young Stars reserve rider Layne Cupitt crashed out of Sunday’s British Under 21 semi-final at Mildenhall and will likely be out for a few weeks.

Four Lynn riders are in the final on Tuesday.
