King’s Lynn to “put some gloss on a tricky season” against Premiership champions Belle Vue Aces

Team manager Alex Brady wants King’s Lynn to “put some gloss on a tricky season” against club legend Robert Lambert and Premiership speedway champions Belle Vue Aces as the Stars close their home campaign on Monday.

Born in Norwich, Great Britain and Grand Prix star Lambert is set to return to the club where he made his name in the UK.

He rode in 2013 for King’s Lynn Young Stars in the National League, scoring 15 points in his first meeting, and was promoted into the Stars’ Elite League senior team the following year.

Lambert appeared for the Minors & Brady Stars until 2019 before concentrating on continental, country and international commitments before joining the Aces recently.

Brady wants to put aside Monday’s disappointment League Cup Final first leg result against Sheffield (see pages 52/53) and said of the 24-year-old: “It will be great to see Robert back, all being well.

“We obviously want to win to put some gloss on what’s been a tricky season, shall we say.

“It’s been full of ups and downs and when you think you’ve cracked it, unfortunately it comes back to bite you the other way.

“Sometimes in performances you don’t get what you deserve but tonight I feel if I’m really honest we probably did get what we deserved. We weren’t quite good enough.

“Next Monday gives us the chance to send these fans home happy. It’s a long winter without the sport so hopefully as many can come and join us as they can.

“We’re going to try and put some gloss on the season by beating the champions.”

Brady added of Monday’s 39-51 home defeat to the Tigers: “There are some performances the riders individually were disappointed with, and rightly so, the fans are too.

“It’s a professional sport and there has to be winners and losers but you can’t afford against a tea like Sheffield to carry five riders.

“Tonight it just wasn’t enough for us, and I include myself in that, the full eight of us.”

Lynn rider Richie Worrall said: “The track was slicker and I was not happy with my performance, with some of the form I’ve been on lately.

“Every one of their team did a job, one or two of our lads had an off night. We’ve got to regroup and go again.”

Minors & Brady Stars skipper Josh Pickering said: “Sometimes in speedway it just happens, you can get 15 points in one night, and then you come back...

“Like Richie, for example, he got a maximum last time he was here. He rocked up with the same set-up tonight and it didn’t work. It’s just speedway for you.”

Last night’s (Thursday) second leg was postponed at Owlerton.

This was due to heavy rain hitting the area throughout the previous night which was also forecast for the majority of the day.

The Tigers are now in talks with their stadium bosses regarding the availability of Owlerton and news on a potential restaging will be announced in due course.
