The BMR Rockets aim to finish their SGB Premiership programme on a high tomorrow when they head to King’s Lynn for their final clash of the season.

With four wins from their last five matches, the Rockets will be on a roll when they arrive in Norfolk to face a team also completing its league fixtures, and which has avoided a place in the relegation play-offs by just two match points. The Rockets, in contrast, will finish fifth in the final table, and know that a victory by seven points or more will give them the four match points that will leave them just one adrift of what would have been a title-chasing play-off spot.

Rye House Team Manager Peter Shroeck is aiming for the perfect wrap-up to what has been a highly positive first season for the club in the top flight. “We have absolutely nothing to lose at Lynn, so we are going up there to enjoy ourselves and get the points that will remind everyone just how good a season we have had.

“All the boys are fired up, and they all want to come back to Rye next season, which is a brilliant attitude. We are hoping that all seven of them will ride; Ben Barker suffered a fracture of his left wrist at Redcar on Friday but he is absolutely determined to be there if at all possible – he is that sort of battler. If not, we will operate Rider-Replacement for him.

“A lot of people have worked really hard to bring the feel-good factor back to the club, but it has really worked and the atmosphere at Rye House this year has been absolutely incredible. It’s all helped lay the foundation for where we want to go next year, and hopefully the result at Lynn will be the next step of the way.”
