Mildenhall Fen Tigers will hold their annual Meet the Riders evening in the Fenman Bar at Mildenhall Stadium on Saturday, February 13.

Staff signing on for the coming season will commence at 6pm with the main event starting at 7pm.

Promoter Kevin Jolly is hoping that all of the 2016 Fen Tigers, with the exception of Connor Coles, (currently in Australia) will be present.

Coles was revealed as Mildenhall’s first signing for next season in November - a year after he was recovering in hospital having undergone a leg-saving operation.

Connor Mountain, Dan Halsey and Luke Ruddick have also re-signed for the club, while Fen Tigers legend Jon Armstrong, exciting prospect Alfie Bowtell and rookie Rob Parker also put pen-to-paper for the West Row outfit.

The club will also be introducing some of the 2016 Fen Tiger Cubs team, sponsored by Brain Pacey from Stonefield Farm Shop of Inworth near Colchester, during the evening.

This annual get together is always well attended as supporters get a chance to meet up prior to the season getting underway and this year is expected to be no different.

The evening will be hosted by the respected Kevin Long, who will again conduct interviews with the management and riders.

As always, admission is free and the fish bar will be open during the early part of the evening.

Young Fen Tiger fans will also have the opportunity to join the Junior Supporters Club and be in with a chance of being the club mascot for the day.

For just £5, they will also receive a birthday and christmas card signed by the team and a photograph will be taken with your favourite rider.
