King’s Lynn co-promoter Dale Allitt is urging supporters to back both of the club’s sides in tonight’s (Wednesday 13) double-header at the Adrian Flux Arena (7.30pm).
Some 30 heats of action will be taking place as the Roger Warnes Transport Stars take on Coventry in the Elite League before the Stebbings Car Superstore Young Stars open their National League campaign against Stoke.
The Stars suffered a disappointing 54-39 defeat at home to Belle Vue last time out, but Allitt is confident his side can get back to winning ways against the Bees tonight.
Said Allitt: “We showed our capabilities at home to Lakeside on Good Friday and they’ve made a great start to the season.
“We know we can put in some big performances, it’s just a case of everyone clicking and everyone doing their job on the night.
“We always seem to have some great battles against Coventry and I’m sure we’re in for another entertaining meeting at the Adrian Flux Arena tonight.”
Meanwhile Allitt says the ‘underdogs’ tag suits his Young Stars line-up down to the ground and he predicts an exciting season is in store for the Travel Plus National League outfit.
“Certainly from the media point of view, the attention always seems to be on the likes of Birmingham, Eastbourne and Cradley for example,” Allitt commented.
“But we feel we’ve assembled a very good side; we’ve got strength in depth and we’ve got some great young riders who it’s going to be a joy to watch progress over the course of the season.
“We feel we can have a really positive season in 2016 and we want to hit the ground running with three points against Stoke tonight.”
A reminder that admission prices for all 30 heats are £19 adults, £16 concessions, £5 juniors while children go free.
However, any fans who don’t wish to stay for the National League clash will be given a voucher on exit to get a free programme at the next Elite League meeting.
