Trelawny will operate rider replacement for the injured Richard Wolff in the semi-final of the Premier Knock-Out Cup away to the Isle of Wight on Tuesday evening (7.30pm). Wolff damaged his wrist in last week's home win over Newcastle and has returned home to the
Czech Republic for treatment.

Promoter Ray Purvis says: "He has not broken any major bones but he has cracked a couple of small plates and has been told to rest for a week." The JAG Tigers will be defending a six point lead from the first leg of the semi-final at the Clay Country Moto Parc a fortnight ago.

On the same night there will be speedway at the Clay County Moto Parc when the Damerell's Pitbulls entertain Carmarthen in a Conference Trophy fixture.

The Pitbulls will include three 15-year-olds in their team. Local favourite Ben Barker is joined by Chris Johnson, who will be making his home debut, and Harry Gent, who will be taking part in his first speedway meeting.

Barker, who captains the side, continued his impressive season when he won the British grass track 350cc schoolboy championship in Yorkshire on Sunday. Johnson top scored for the Damerell's Pitbulls with 14 (paid 15) points in their 51-37 defeat at Carmarthen. Gent, a regular grass track performer, impressed the Trelawny management in a recent practice session at the Moto Parc.
