Wednesfield Aces remain top of the Midland Cycle Speedway League after a big score win over an under strength Stoke side

Match report from Glyn Rowley

Wednesfield Aces remain top of the Midland Cycle Speedway League after a big score win over an under strength Stoke side from the Potteries last weekend.  Stoke had to use several of their junior riders to make up their team but the meeting held plenty of entertainment with the Aces top riders very sportingly slowing the pace when up against the Stoke youngsters giving them good racing experience.

There was some good racing between the Aces and Stoke’s top riders with Stoke’s Lewis Bates the match top scorer on 18 points, Chris Jewkes top scorer for the Aces on 17 points in a very sporting match.

The Division Two meeting was run in the same vain as the first team match with Stoke having to use the same riders that rode in their first team and giving away 51 penalty points to Wednesfield before they even got a stride a bike.

This rule applies to riders that have ridden in the first team match and are over the age of 16 years.  The visitors, with no chance of recovering those points, very sportingly did what the Aces did in the first team match and slowed the pace a little when up against the Aces junior riders.  The Aces ran out winners of the fixture without the use of the penalty points given.
