Stars dimmed at Purfleet

Lakeside Hammers ended a busy 72-hour spell with a crushing win over Kings Lynn Stars at the weekend.

Following contrasting defeats at Peterborough and Coventry, Hammers returned to home shale to ride to a 61-32 success in front of their own fans and go into a two-week break in positive mood.

Adam Shields produced four race wins in a paid 14 tally, a figure matched by reserve Stuart Robson, while Lee Richardson, Kauko Nieminen and Robert Mear all chalked up a dozen points apiece.

Guest Ryan Fisher missed out somewhat with six points from four rides, as Hammers went into battle without Piotr Swiderski (eye) and Peter Ljung (back).

Swiderski had top scored in a battling 50-42 defeat at Peterborough on Thursday, before a patched-up Lakeside outfit were thumped 58-34 at Coventry on Friday.

Hammers return to action with a KO Cup tie against Birmingham on June 9-10.
