KING’S Lynn brushed aside badly depleted champions Poole with a stunning show on home shale.

It was the first time in three attempts at the Adrian Flux Arena to beat the Pirates after previous defeats in the Shield and Cup.

And Poultec Stars hero Michael Palm Toft enjoyed the night after saying they should have won the title last season after Grand Final heartache against Poole.

“I enjoyed that,” he said. “We should have won the league against them last season and it still hurts so I’m really pleased.

“I felt good, I was determined and really felt comfortable on the bike, I was really confident.

“Hopefully we can keep this going and get a good run going.”

Lynn made a perfect start with skipper Lambert leading from start to finish and Michael Palm Toft took advantage of a Jack Holder mistake for a 5-1.

And they followed it up with another maximum from reserve duo Simon Lambert and Lewis Kerr in the next to go 10-2 up.

Erik Riss, back in the side after injury, pulled off a good move to pass Nicolai Klindt in Heat 3 for a Stars 4-2 to lead 14-4 - and even at this early stage it was a long way back for Poole.

Palm Toft thrilled the fans with a stunning swoop on Poole’s Jack Holder in Heat 6 for a 4-2.

Poole’s last throw of the dice was Nicolai Klindt as a tactical sub in Heat 9 but Riss was brilliant with a move to pull away and the visitors could offer no more.

Lynn’s dominance continued although there was concern over Thomas Jorgensen who withdrew as a precaution with a shoulder problem.
Poultec Stars head to Swindon in more Premiership action this Thursday.
