KING’S Lynn suffered a 52-40 defeat in an eventful clash with Poole at the Adrian Flux Arena.

The Trucks R Us Stars were condemned to a disappointing home loss on a difficult evening in Norfolk.

The home side were trailing by six when the meeting was delayed for track work to take place after riders encountered difficulties in the first nine heats.

And the Stars were dealt a further blow when team manager Dale Allitt was taken to hospital after falling ill during the interval.

With Troy Batchelor withdrawing with a wrist injury and a total of four exclusions for riders missing the two minutes’ time allowance, they were always up against it.

Paul Starke and Hans Andersen both bagged double figures whilst Richie Worrall and Jack Holder added paid 10 apiece as the Pirates took full advantage.

Robert Lambert bagged 10 points whilst Kai Huckenbeck won his final two rides for the Stars, but they could not replicate their stunning success at Wimborne Road the previous evening.

Full reaction to Thursday’s events will follow on Friday.

KING’S LYNN 40: Robert Lambert 10, Kai Huckenbeck 9, Troy Batchelor 5, Thomas Jorgensen 5, Chris Holder 4, Lewis Rose 4, Simon Lambert 3.
POOLE 52: Paul Starke 12+3, Hans Andersen 11+1, Jack Holder 9+1, Richie Worrall 9+1, Krzysztof Kasprzak 6, James Shanes 5+2, Nicolai Klindt R/R.
