Kelvin Tatum praised the efforts of his Lakeside Hammers team after their season was ended by Belle Vue on Friday night.

Tatum, the Vortex Hammers co-boss, was absent from Manchester as his side crashed to a heavy defeat in the second leg of their National League play-off semi-final.

But he said: “I think most people would agree it’s been a fine effort to reach the play-offs and well done to the boys who have got us there.

“I’ve enjoyed working with the riders and I know they’ve given it their very best but I think everyone knows what a powerhouse team Belle Vue are around their own track.

“I was naturally disappointed not to be able to be there, which is another reason why I want to say thanks to all the guys.

“Also to our track staff, sponsors and supporters, it’s been tough going at times but thanks to them all for supporting the club.

“I congratulate Belle Vue and wish them well in the final and I’m looking forward to charting the progress of Dan Bewley in particular, he’s got a big future ahead of him.”

Belle Vue: Dan Bewley 18, Jack Smith 16+2, Kyle Bickley 11+3, Rob Shuttleworth 11+3, Luke Woodhull 7+3, Andy Mellish 6+1, Lee Payne R/R.

Hammers: Max Clegg 6, Paul Hurry 5, Ben Morley 5, Alfie Bowtell 3+1, Jason Edwards 2, Jamie Cousins 0, Nick Laurence R/R.
