Good Friday action for Lakeside

The Lakeside Vortex Hammers will be out for revenge following their humbling at King’s Lynn on Tuesday, when they take on the Stars at the Arena Essex Raceway on Good Friday (1pm).

Hammers slumped to a 58-34 loss at the Norfolk Arena, in front of the live Sky TV cameras, and co-promoter Jon Cook said: “Good Friday is a real season highlight and we have a red hot team visiting, which means we need to be at our best to take the win and make amends for a generally inept performance on Tuesday night in Norfolk.”

The meeting sees local Rye House rider Steve Boxall come in at Fast Track reserve for the Hammers in place of Ashley Birks, who is riding for his Premier League club Sheffield.

The King’s Lynn Stars bring in Kevin Doolan for Nicklas Porsing, who aggravated a knee injury and withdrew during the meeting in midweek. Fast Track reserve Lewis Kerr, who crashed in his second ride in the same meeting, will take his place in the Stars line-up at The Raceway.

The Good Friday meeting starts at 1pm, with admission from 11am onwards. Tickets can be purchased at the gate on the day or in advance through the Online Ticket Store, which can be accessed through the ‘Next Meeting’ button on the homepage on the club’s website.

Teams, Lakeside Vortex Hammers: Andreas Jonsson (captain), Kim Nilsson, Mikkel Bech, Edward Kennett, Richard Lawson, Adam Ellis, Steve Boxall.

King’s Lynn Stars: Neils Kristian Iversen, Robert Lambert, Rory Schlein (captain), Kevin Doolan, Kenneth Bjerre, Lewis Kerr, Ashley Morris.
