13 July match results
East London 70 - 102 Hethersett (Div 1)
East London 101 - 96 Hethersett (Div 2) (with penalty points added)
After last month's victory, it was back to what has become normal for East London - an under-strength squad putting up a brave fight against insurmountable odds. Led by the free scoring cousins Nicky Gunkel and Richard Austen, the hosts made sure that Hethersett worked hard for their victory. However, being a man down and with Kevin Smith not yet back to full fitness, the home side were never going to seriously challenge for the win.
Scorers: Richard Austen 20, Nick Gunkel 20, Steve Woodroof 13, Les Stevens 9, Kevin Smith 8.
The division two match - like the one against Great Blakenham in June - was a tense affair with penalty points having a real bearing on the outcome. But unlike the previous fixture, East London this time ran out the winners. Everyone contributed, with each rider reaching double figures. Austen was again top scorer and with plenty of support, the home team was able to send the visitors back up the A11 empty-handed.
Scorers: Austen 18, Stevens 14, Woodroof 14, Smith 10.
