But it was not a great evening for the Suffolk riders taking part.

Ipswich rider Daniel Pike fell in heat one (the first of three falls for him), while other local lads Adam Peck and Lewis Osborne had three exclusions between them.

But England held on for a memorable victory, running out 90-80 victors.

THERE will be a full match report and more pictures in the Star's Grassroots junior sports paper on Monday.
