BRAVE King’s Lynn ace Lewis Kerr has told his team-mates to “Keep Calm And Carry On” in their much-awaited Premiership Play-Off final.

The Tru Plant Stars go into their first-ever league title decider against the Poole Pirates tomorrow night with the second leg at the Adrian Flux Arena on Wednesday night.

Kerr sustained horrific leg injuries after a awkward crash at the circuit three months ago and is now finally out of a cast and getting fit for the 2019 season.

But for now his heart is set on seeing his pals win the first-ever top flight league title for the Stars.

His message to the team is clear, he revealed: “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. They’ve come this far, there’s no need to change anything.

“Finishing top of the league, having Michael Palm Toft at reserve and everyone flying makes us favourites I’d say but of course, you should never take anything for granted.

“We just have to carry on what we’re doing. If we do that we will be champions. This team has performed all season and now it is about making sure we see it through.

“Now it’s about staying focused. Poole have been in so many finals, they are experienced at it so will maybe try some mind games.

“It really is a case of our boys sticking to the saying ‘Keep Calm And Carry On’. If they do that then the title is in the bag.

“I know they got hammered at Wimborne Road a couple of months ago but I don’t see that happening again. This is the final and our boys will be fired-up big time and I do believe we have the better side.

“If they can keep it close in Poole it is going to be one heck of a night at King’s Lynn on Wednesday night. Maybe even the greatest in the club’s history.”

Kerr has also expressed his thanks for the backing he has received in his hour of need after his massive crash in July.

He added: “I would like to thank the fans for their support, everyone here has been superb and the collection made a big difference as well.

“The people here from top to bottom have been always been fantastic to me and I really appreciate it.”

He’s also said he is bang on target to return to the saddle next season and wants to be back in Tru Plant Stars colours if possible.

“I want to be back, I’ve loved it at King’s Lynn. Obviously we’ve got these big meetings to focus on first and I would love to see us win the league.

“But once the dust settles on this season I hope the club can find a way to accommodate me in their plans next year.”

POOLE: Chris Harris, Josh Grajczonek, Kacper Woryna, Nicolai Klindt, Nick Morris, Richie Worrall, Frederik Jakobsen.

KING'S LYNN: Robert Lambert, Erik Riss, Ty Proctor, Thomas Jorgensen, Niels-Kristian Iversen, Michael Palm-Toft, Simon Lambert.
