Cradley ready for Stoke challenge

First published in Sport

CRADLEY will look to continue their stunning run of form when they head to neighbours Stoke on Sunday (6pm).

They’ll be without the services of Steve Worrall, who is riding for Edinburgh in the Premier League Fours Championship. His rides will be shared amongst his colleagues.

Skipper Paul Starke, who broke the Cradley track record at Monmore in last week’s win over Coventry, is hoping to keep the momentum going.

He said: "It was obviously a great night for me personally but for the team it was an important win as well.

"We wanted to set a precedent against a strong Coventry side, and I think that's what we did.

"It was a result which sent a message out to other teams, and I can't see many sides wanting to ride us at the moment the way we are going.

“Now we go to Stoke and hopefully we can just keep picking up those points and put ourselves in a strong position for the play-offs.”

Worrall, meanwhile, is delighted to be racing for the famous old club.

"Everything has gone really well since I joined Cradley - it couldn't have gone much better really,” he added.

"It's a club I've wanted to ride for for a few years now, and I'm just glad to have the chance this year.

"Fortunately everything has come together well - we have a great bunch of lads and we are riding really well as a team.

"Fingers crossed things carry on as they are for the rest of the season and we can end up winning the league again."

Cradley are next at Monmore on Tuesday, August 12 when they face bitter rivals Mildenhall with more league points on the line.
