MILDENHALL TEST LOOMS

Two of the big beasts of the National League clash tomorrow (May 20) when Eastbourne go to Mildenhall in the National Trophy.

The home team have taken a firm grip of the competition's southern section and the Forman IT Eagles will be aiming for a win to give themselves a chance of proceeding from the group to the final.

Team manager Connor Dugard said: "It will be close, I'm sure of that.

"The team had a good work out against the IT First Eagles tonight and everyone scored well.

"We head to West Row with high morale and the team in good form. It's a match which will really test us but we are up for the challenge."

Charley Powell will be back in the team after missing tonight's meeting for family reasons while rider replacement will be used for Kelsey Dugard, who has a pre-arranged engagement.
