SPEEDWAY: Promoter Jon Cook has hailed youngster Adam Ellis as a match winner as the Vortex Lakeside Hammers denied the Swindon Robins a fourth consecutive win in Essex on Friday night.
With the Robins staging a mid match revival that ultimately gained them the extra point Hammers Team Manager Neil Vatcher brought Ellis into Heat 12 and the Vortex Hammers asset pulled out all the stops to join the similarly impressive Richard Lawson on a 5-1 beating the experienced Nicolai Klindt in the process.
Jon Cook commented after the match: "Adam was awesome and to claim such a notable scalp on his home debut is a mouth watering taster of what's to come in the seasons ahead. Praise too to Ben Morley for a terrific first Elite League meeting as a Vortex Hammer."
