HITMEN 50 STOKE 38

Sunday May 27, 2012
After a disappointing away result at Stoke on Saturday night the Buxton Hitmen hit back with their first win of the season at the return home leg on Sunday. Taking all three league points with a 50 - 38 win.

Team manager Jack Lee spoke after the meeting "I'm over the moon with todays result I was really worried after our defeat last weekend against the Isle of Wight and after a tough night at Loomer Road last night I thought we were in real trouble but the lads had some social time together last night and got a chance to re group and finally got down to business today and we got this fantastic win.

"It was an exciting meeting and hopefully the first of many successful wins for the Hitmen this season. Ryan Blacklock proved what a fantastic reserve he has turned into with a paid eleven and Robert Branford again was back on the gas. The lads still have some way to go, not all of our riders are getting in the points they should but hopefully this win will help spur
them on, the team spirit is back and now they have tasted success they won't want it to end here".
