King’s Lynn Stars miserable luck with the weather has continued after today’s meeting with Belle Vue became their seventh home fixture of the season to be rained off.

Stars chiefs decided to postpone the clash after rain fell in Lynn at around 3pm. Forecasts suggest more is likely to follow throughout the day.

The meeting has been immediately rearranged for next Wednesday meaning the Stars will ride three times in four days.

First, on Monday 20, they travel to Belle Vue, before welcoming the Aces for the return fixture two days later. The next night they travel to Peterborough Panthers, weather permitting, for a hotly-anticipated A47 derby.
