Adrian Flux Arena outfit suffer back-to-back defeats at start of new speedway campaign
King’s Lynn Stars riders and management have vowed to get things right following a shaky double-loss start to the season.
Lynn have so far lost 59-31 at Ipswich in the Supporters’ Cup and gone down 40-50 at home to the Poole Pirates in Monday’s Premiership Shield first leg.
They host local rivals Ipswich Witches on Monday in the Premiership Supporters’ Cup.
Co-promoter Robin Brundle said after Monday’s home defeat: “I’m a little disappointed, to be honest because we did put in a lot of work over the winter and I thought we were going to have a flying start as I’m sure many of the supporters have done.
“We do need to regroup, we do need to reflect a little bit and just see where we’re going because there’s certain people you expect to get a certain number of points and that hasn’t happened.
“We need to understand why because we should be winning. That’s where we’re heading and we’ll make sure we’ll get there.”
Captain Robert Lambert, pictured, said: “I’ve got some problems I’ve never ever had before. Obviously I need to fix it. I’m learning all the time, it’s something you never stop doing. I need to sort it fast and I’m not happy about it.
“I just need it fixed. Sorry to everyone we lost but it’s still early days and there’s bright prospects for the team. We had a fantastic season last year and I don’t see why we can’t do the same this year.”
Vice-skipper Ty Proctor added: “So far this year I’ve either made the start by a mile or miss it by a mile. Tonight I missed them.
“These new starting procedures have kind of pickled my head a little bit. It’s something I’ve been working on and it’s something I’m just getting used to, I guess.”
