King’s Lynn Stars axe Dersingham speedway rider Lewis Kerr and will make Polish leagues signing at the weekend

King’s Lynn Stars team manager Alex Brady confirmed tonight long-serving Dersingham racer Lewis Kerr has left the team.

The struggling Kerr has departed the one-to-seven and Lynn will announce the signing of a rider who is currently in the Polish leagues some time over the weekend.

The 32-year-old, who was ruled out of tonight's derby 43-47 defeat at home to Premiership leaders Ipswich with an aggravated collarbone injury, has been associated with the Minors & Brady Stars club in most seasons since 2010.

Brady told the Lynn News about Kerr: "I wish him all the best.

"Equally I'm not prepared to let this season to just drift along and just get until the end of September and think 'that's it'.

"I want to give ourselves the best opportunity. Ultimately I felt I've done that. Whether that pays off at the end of the season, we'll find out.

"I'm here to do a job for everybody. I felt what I've done is right.

"We can't say who the signing is now but check social media on Saturday or Sunday."

Lynn on Monday travel to Sheffield Tigers in a re-arranged away clash that they must get something from – even a losing away league point at the bare minimum – to have any hopes of reaching the play-offs.

Fourth-spot Sheffield are in the last play-off berth and are 11 points ahead of Lynn, who have eight meetings remaining.

Brady added of the run-in: "We can only afford really to slip up in one. Every match now is a must-win.

"I've still got every faith we can do that. If I didn't, there's no point in turning up, I believe."
