  • Ely Tigers maintain winning streak with 14 men

    Published: Mon, 22/10/2018 07:44
    Ely absorbed a lot of pressure early on as Thurston were pumped from the off. Disaster struck when Ely had a man red carded. Afterwards Thurston scored from an Ely error when the ball was knocked-on and fly-hacked through, the opposition won the chase and dotted down for a converted try. Thurston then lost a man to the sin bin and consistent

    Leading Midlands trainer Dan Skelton registered his first Huntingdon Racecourse winner of the season when Denmead blew away his opposition in the opening race on Tuesday.

  • More Ely and District Cycling Club take part in Cyclocross

    Published: Wed, 17/10/2018 10:24
    Despite the heavy rain, which made the grassy course very heavy going for the riders, five Ely and District Cycling Club riders took part in the race. In the Under 12s Kieran Vanhoutte had one of his best results of the season so far finishing in 15th place. In the Under 14s race Isaac Barton finished in 28th place. Moving onto the older age

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Teaser

    Published: Tue, 16/10/2018 10:19
    The rain finally arrived last week with a vengeance and with the downpours came an abundance of winter runners. Chepstow must have been pleased with their turn-out for their season opening meeting on Saturday and Sunday with the wet weather arriving just in time to give them the first ‘proper' jumping ground of the new season. Although we were not

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Hard Ground

    Published: Tue, 09/10/2018 10:23
    Despite the promise of some rain last week, it never really materialised with just over 4mm falling at Pond House throughout the course of the entire weekend. It certainly wasn't enough to save Exeter who were hoping to host their season opening meeting this coming Thursday. Unfortunately with the ground officially firm (hard in places) at the end

    Published: Mon, 08/10/2018 04:23
    A tough and physical encounter with Wisbech saw the Ely end up on top. The opposition started off the stronger side. Consistent possession led to Ely conceding two penalties early on with Wisbech converting both. Ely came back with a penalty of their own and just before the end of the half Charlie Coupland ran a storming line and slipped straight

  • Ely and District Cycling Club weekend race reports

    Published: Wed, 03/10/2018 07:03
    This weekend's racing started rather inauspiciously for members of the Ely and District Cycling Club with John Manlow's race in the VTTA 50 mile time trial being cancelled part way through the event. The race had to be stopped due to a road traffic accident unrelated to the racing in which a car left the carriageway resulting in the road being

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Golden Oldies

    Published: Tue, 02/10/2018 10:24
    With the unusually dry weather conditions of late and no rain in the immediate weather forecast the ground at the tracks remains unseasonably fast. People often forget that this can happen and it will be a few more weeks before the winter horses from Pond House will be reappearing. Consequently we have had relatively few runners, while there is a

  • Ely RUFC showed heart to beat Thetford away with a shortage of players

    Published: Mon, 01/10/2018 05:48
    Ely gained a penalty and opted to kick for the corner. The ball came out to Sam Benzie from the line-out and he scurried through the opposition defence to touch down for a converted try. The Tigers then lost players to injury nearing the end of the half and Thetford took advantage of this and touched down twice within minutes of each other after

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Members of Chepstow racecourse visit

    Published: Tue, 25/09/2018 13:01
    Autumn is now officially upon us and nice as the summer has been with an abundance of fine sunshine and sizzling temperatures. There is something about the changing of the seasons that brings a heightened anticipation to the place as the horses continue their preparations for the core part of the jumps season. Although maybe not as strong in number

  • Ely displayed a solid performance at home against Crusaders

    Published: Mon, 24/09/2018 05:47
    Ely Tigers were a different team in the first half compared to last week. The flowing rugby meant they would cross the white wash early on. Ever-present Luke Turner scored a characteristic try after the ball was shipped wide. Joel Scott Paul added another converted try of a similar vein moments later.

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Timeforben

    Published: Tue, 18/09/2018 10:18
    There was a somewhat truncated National Hunt programme last week with the jumps action finishing on Wednesday and as such we were limited to just the three runners. They were spread far and wide with Dell' Arca contesting the Kerry National at the Listowel Festival in Ireland. I am pleased to report that the horses continue to perform well as the

  • A night to forget for Ely Tigers away at West Norfolk

    Published: Mon, 17/09/2018 07:21
    Ely's opposition were fired up from start. The ball travelled back and forth for the first ten minutes with both sides conceding penalties. West Norfolk then broke through on the wing and touched down for a converted try. Ely answered with a penalty soon after through the boot of Joel Scott Paul. The Tigers continued to play in the opposition half

    Published: Tue, 11/09/2018 13:17
    There were only three runners from Pond House last week (and two of those were on the flat), but I am pleased to report that the horses continue in good form and we were back among the winners again with the success of Jacbequick on the level at Ffos Las. With the bulk of the horses at the stables continuing their preparations ahead of the core

    Although there were only a handful of runners last week, the majority performed well and I was delighted to produce a winner for long-standing (and colourful!) owner Stuart Mercer. While there isn't a huge amount of jumping in the coming days, we still have a handful of entries and even turn our hands to the flat this afternoon. I am pleased

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, A Few Good Runs

    Published: Tue, 28/08/2018 06:23
    It was a particularly pleasing comeback and stable debut from Midnight Sapphire who finishes second at Newton Abbot. We had her in the yard a while but a few little setbacks have kept her off the track for 18 months. Her owner/breeders have been very patient and it was great to reward them with a good effort. She showed a very willing attitude keep

    It was a good week for the yard with the stable enjoying a couple of winners from just four runners, which is considerably more success than we enjoyed on the golf course when playing in the Jim Old charity golf day at Marlborough last Monday! With a visit to the yard from the South West Hereford Association on Sunday, it has certainly been a
