Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators had two riders competing in round six of the South East and Eastern Grand Prix series at Somersham in Suffolk.

Both riders are in contention for honours in their categories for the series and gave their causes a boost.

Owen Wells scored 14 points which gave him choice of starting positions in the Under-18 final which he won while Glyn Morgan scored 11 and finished second in the Veterans' final. They will look forward to round seven on September 23 as this is at Hethersett.

The rearranged Norfolk Go-Ride Grand Prix at Hethersett saw Hethersett riders fill the minor places in the senior final behind Paddy Wenn. Wells was again in good form to hold off Leigh Cossey with Karie Adams fourth. He also won the Under-16s.

Wells and Morgan will be joined by Harley Hamill this weekend as they contest the British Individual Championships.
