Elite League scores give Workington Comets speedway star boost
Last updated at 12:44, Wednesday, 20 June 2012
Workington Comets’ Adam Roynon has received a confidence boost for this week’s matches by racking up big scores in the Elite League.
For his club Coventry against King’s Lynn, last week, Roynon scored a paid 11 points to inspire a mid-meeting fight back and then guested for Wolves on Monday scoring nine points.
Roynon hopes that his good form will continue when Comets travel to Ipswich tomorrow and entertain Glasgow on Saturday.
He said: “I was already riding pretty well anyway and I am enjoying my racing at the moment. It is paying off as I am getting good results on the track.
“However, it is a long season and I have just got to try and keep my consistency up in all three leagues but my main priority is Workington.”
Roynon was disappointed that the Comets dropped points away to Glasgow on Sunday where they surrendered an eight point lead with two heats to go ending up drawing.
However, he said the Comets must try and take the positives from that match but focus on the two upcoming fixtures.
He said: “We still got two points which is better than one or nothing but when you are eight points in front with two heats left it is pretty disappointing.
“I didn’t get the points when we needed to on Sunday but you have got to stay positive.”
Workington should be stronger for Ipswich and Glasgow as they welcome back Kyle Howarth who missed the Glasgow match still recovering from an injury suffered at Berwick.
The Manchester youngster had a spin at the Northside training track on Monday and declared himself fit to race.
The Comets will be hoping to do a lot better than their visits to Ipswich last season which both resulted in heavy defeats and Roynon is hoping for better luck after he broke his femur there last year riding for Redcar.
He said: “Hopefully, I will get round safely this time. Last year there was nothing wrong with the track I was just unlucky.
“I just want to keep safe, like I do every meeting, and score some points which I have been doing.
“We will be hoping for a better result but it is two completely different teams than last time so hopefully we can come away with some points.”
