Armadale Devils speedway team are outshone by Newcastle Gems
Armadale Devils speedway team tumbled to defeat last Friday in their second home fixture against a Newcastle Gems team strongly led by Max Clegg, but equally importantly, with solid backup from their other six riders.
Nathan Greaves did manage to lower Clegg's colours in heat 1 in setting a NL track record of 58.6, but in the big heats 13 and 15 the visiting number one romped home.
Danny Phillips had a fall while leading Clegg though whether he would have held on is doubtful.
Team scores were:
Stellar Devils - N Greaves 12, G Rothery 12, T Woolley 11, D Phillips 7, S Davies 1, L Millar 0, G Millar 0.
Gems - M Clegg 14, D Smith 9, J Embleton 5, K Dugard 5, R Terry-Daley 5, J Alcock 4, A Freeman 4.
