Exeter Falcons 20 Isle of Wight Wizards 16 (8th June 2018)

Falcons secured their lead in the Southern Development League defeating Wizards tonight 20:16 despite loosing a rider just before their first race.  Great to see Adam Sheppard back on the bike in Falcons colours following a two year spell on the sidelines with a nasty foot injury.  Hats off to James Chattin our maximum man ( 9 points ) and time of the day achiever (56.69s).  James won the last heat re-run on his own following the controversial exclusion of Saul Bulley.

Exeter scorers:  Saul Bulley 6; James Chattin 9; Adam Sheppard 5+1

Isle of Wight scorers:  Chris Watts 7; Morgan Williams 2+1; Ben Ilsley 5+1; James Luckman 2+1

National League Four Team Tournament Challenge 31/05/2018

The Exeter Chris Richards Falcons have been invited to take part in a National League Four Team Tournament Challenge on the Isle of Wight on Thursday 31st May – 7pm start.  Our opponents will be two teams from the Isle of Wight (The Warriors and The Wizards) and Weymouth Wildcats.

Exeter based and Plymouth Devil’s star Henry Atkins will wear the Falcons’ race jacket alongside 16 year old Tom Brennan and Kelsey Dugard, both from Eastbourne with Ryan Terry-Daley, also from Plymouth making up the quartet.

It would be great to see some Exeter Supporters cheering us on, on the island.

 

Looking ahead to the 2018 season ……

The Exeter Chris Richards Falcons SDL side will be running out of Plymouth for the 2018 season. Sadly, Somerset are unable to accommodate us this year due to change of race night but we would like to sincerely thank the Somerset promotion for giving us a home over the last 3 years and without their help we would not have got the Falcons back on track. So on to Plymouth where we will be competing in the SDL league against Kent , last year’s champions Reading , Isle of Wight, Weymouth and possibly Bristol (subject to track venue). We will also try to put on some MDL vs SDL challenge matches . In addition, we have spoken to Mark Phillips (Promotor at Plymouth) about the possibility of running a PLYMOUTH vs FALCONS National League match some time in the season and we will keep you posted if this goes ahead . So to all you Falcons supporters out there please come down to Plymouth on a Friday night and support two Devon sides:   the Plymouth Devils  and the Exeter Chris Richards Falcons.
