Mildenhall Speedway boss Malcolm Vasey has offered high praise to his riders after they clinched the National Development League title.

The Fen Tigers put themselves in the box seat by winning at Kent last Tuesday and then finished the job at Armadale on Saturday to secure the club’s first third-tier crown since 2012.

Vasey said: “These are a brilliant band of riders who have not given a moment’s difficulty to me all season.

Co-owner Phil Kirk added: “What has been a challenging season from the start has ended on a massive high.
