KING’S Lynn Young Stars picked up a hard-fought consolation point after a 48-42 defeat at Belle Vue on Friday.

The Stebbings Car Superstore side were involved in some tremendous action at the National Speedway Stadium and trailed by only four points entering heat 15.

Although they were unable to snatch a draw, they nonetheless ensured they did not go home empty handed.

Team boss Dale Allitt was delighted with a strong all-around performance from his side on their travels.

“It was one of those meetings that was always close,” Allitt said. “You always want more, and there were a couple of times when we got within touching distance.

“It ultimately became more about securing a point at the end after Nathan (Greaves) was excluded from heat 15, and we were pleased to hold on.

“There were some good performances. Taylor Hampshire rode well and showed what potential he has, Jon Armstrong was a superb No.1, Scott Campos did well and Nathan Greaves battled with bike problems all night but still scored good points.

“It was a good team performance, and if you can’t win away you always want to come away with a point which we did.

“We’re only four points behind Mildenhall now, so it’s still all up for grabs as we try and move up that extra spot in the table before the end of the season.”
