KENT 'Kestrels' vs ISLE OF WIGHT 'Wizards'
Southern Development League : 12/08/2018
Wizards Looking For Magic In Kent
Fresh from a win on home shale last Thursday, the Isle of Wight ‘Wightlink’ Wizards speedway team head East on Sunday to take on the Kent Kestrels in the Southern Development League (SDL).
The meeting will be staged at the training facility at Iwade on the banks of the River Medway and unusually will form part of a triple header meeting as the Kestrels will also be taking on Exeter and Weymouth before the Wizards get on track.
Those who attended the home SDL fixture against Kent will remember what a strong quartet the Kestrels can be, running out with six maximum heat wins in a power packed display and therefore it’s no surprise that the Wizards have gathered together their best riders for this meeting.
Wizards (alphabetical): Ben Ilsley, Jamie Sealey, Chris Watts, Rob Watts.
Wizards Bow To Champions
Kent 28 Isle of Wight 8
The Isle of Wight ‘Wightlink’ Wizards Development League team today headed East to meet the Kent Kestrels in meeting number three of a busy afternoon of Southern Development League (SDL) speedway at the Iwade track.
The Kestrels have been the team to beat this year and before the Wizards meeting they were crowned SDL champions. Any hope that the Wizards might have held that the Kestrels would relax as the title had been secured were soon dispelled as the home side produced a gating master class that left the Wizards trailing all afternoon.
As always there was no lack of effort from the visitors, but the better side ran out rightful winners leaving the Wizards to regroup ahead of their final home SDL match against Reading at the Andrew Younie Smallbrook Stadium next Thursday.
Kestrels: Jamie Cousins 7+2, Alex Spooner 9, Jacob Clouting 5+1, William O’Keefe 7+2.
Wizards: Chris Watts 3, Jamie Sealey 3+1, Ben Ilsley 0, Rob Watts 2.
