Vatcher also said, “this is a meeting that is bound to cause a lot of interest around the Peterborough area as there will be a lot of local talent on display”.
Ipswich will be represented by Connor Mountain (also Mildenhall) and Danyon Hume (also Birmingham), Kings Lynn will have Josh Bailey, Danny Phillips and Ryan Kinsley in attendance, and riders invited from the Lakeside and Kent clubs will be Zach Wajknecht, Nathan Stoneman and Jack Thomas, along with Premiership League riders James Shanes, Nathan Greaves and Ellis Perks.
