The Mildenhall Fen Tigers had to settle for third spot in the Kent County Fours Championship on Friday.

An action-packed affair brought the curtain down on the 2015 season at Sittingbourne’s Central Park.

The hosts had grasstrack champion James Shanes, and National League Pairs champions Danny Ayres and Ben Morley receiving in their line-up.

The Kings finished just ahead of the Tigers in second spot, but as runners-up behind the consistent Eastbourne Eagles.

Mildenhall’s Tom Bacon lowered the colours of Morley in heat four - one of five race victories for the Tigers during the evening.

It was the hosts who posed the greatest threat to Eastbourne in the second-half of the meeting.

Bacon top-scored with eight points with his second race success coming in the penultimate heat of the night as Mildenhall finished in third place.
