Lakeside Young Hammers & Anglian Junior League

In 2012, The Hammers ran a Junior Hammers team in the Anglian Junior League, along with the promotions at Ipswich, Kings Lynn, Lakeside, Mildenhall, Peterborough and Rye House.  Each four a side meeting was staged over six heats, with the key aim of providing competitive track time and to nurture young British Talent.

The Lakeside Young Hammers quartet  for the opening Anglian Junior League matches were all regulars last year at the very successful Training Schools staged at the Raceway by George and Linda Barclay.  Further information about the Training school can be found here.  To view both the Anglian Junior League Fixture list,  table and results from the 2012 season, please scroll down the page.
