Hawks/Swinton and Co
opened their 2015 South East League campaign with a
convincing win at Great Blakenham. Both teams were
down on full strength and struggling for early season
fitness but, apart from a maximum by Lewis Osborne, the
home side had little to trouble the solid Hawks. The
visitors lost just one race in each half opening the
match with a Dan Butler / Dan Chambers 7-3 win. Dan
Chambers was the pick of the riders suffering his only
defeats at the hands of Osborne.

Hethersett could only track four riders in the Division
2 match so were always facing an uphill task with tired
legs but still gave a good account providing eight race
winners in the 13 heats.

The first team are next in action on March 29th when
they visit champions Ipswich Whirlwinds.
The first action on the Hethersett track this season
took place under floodlights with an open evening for
members of Hethersett Velo Club. They fully enjoyed the
difference in the bikes to what they are used to and
sampled normal racing as well as time trials, handicaps
and relay races.
The cycle speedway club welcomes any groups who want an
evening with a difference.
This season sees
two big events coming to the Hethersett Memorial Playing
Field track - a British Women & Girls League fixture
in May and a British Youth and Junior League National
Round in July.
