Veteran racer to ride for Lakeside

Fans favourite Paul Hurry will be back in Hammers colours on Friday – seven years after he last rode for the club!

Lakeside host Kent at The Arena Essex Raceway in the second leg of the Tunnel Trophy (8pm), holding a 46-43 lead after Monday’s victory at Central Park.

With Zach Wajtknecht on SGB Premiership duty with Swindon, the Vortex Lakeside Hammers have opted to use 42-year-old Hurry in the number five position and he said: “It’s going to be a great occasion and I really cannot wait!

“I’ve been through a hell of a lot but I’ve always stayed pretty close to the sport.

“I’m definitely no stranger to the raceway and I’ve been getting a few laps in.

“Kent are a pretty solid side so it should be a great meeting for the fans to come and watch.

“I’m just going to enjoy the night – but of course I’d love to get a good score and help the team win as well!”

The Hammers look set to welcome back George Hunter after sitting out of Monday’s first leg and will also hand Jamie Couzins another opportunity to impress at reserve after a solid showing in the away fixture.

Kent include experienced campaigners Luke Bowen and Ben Hopwood as well as 2017 British Under-21 finalist Nathan Stoneman.

There will also be six junior races prior to the start of the main event, with the youngsters expected to take to the track around 7.30pm.

Hammers: Ben Morley, George Hunter, David Mason, Alfie Bowtell, Paul Hurry, Jamie Couzins, Nick Laurence.

Kent: Luke Bowen, Luke Clifton, Ben Hopwood, Jack Thomas, Nathan Stoneman, Bradley Andrews, Alex Spooner.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
