Mildenhall Fen Tigers will get their first taste of team action in 2022 on Thursday in a special all-Suffolk challenge at Ipswich Speedway.

With these line-ups, it means that four of the 2022 Mildenhall National Development League squad will be in action, with new signings Alex Spooner and Josh Warren donning the Witches race jacket for the evening.

They will be taking on 2021 NDL winners Jason Edwards and Sam Bebee (reunited for this one match only with fellow rider from that memorable title win, Sam Hagon). Youngster William Richardson completes the quartet for this Suffolk derby challenge match.

Mildenhall promoter Greg Palmer said: “When Chris (Louis, Ipswich promoter) contacted me about bringing a team over to Foxhall Heath this Thursday we were happy to oblige, as this will give some of our lads valuable track time ahead of the forthcoming NDL season.

"Hopefully some of our supporters will be able to make the relatively short trip across the county to cheer the boys on.

“The club are looking at further possibilities to run these type of matches in second halves at our at home meetings on occasion this season and we hope to have some news on that front soon.”
