"I wanted the season to end with a bang" said skipper Ludvig Lindgren - and as the Steve Brock photo tells, he certainbly did as his chain snapped in the final 30th race of the night.
 
The Sapphire Engineering Diamonds took a maximum six points from their last two SGB Championship league matches at Brough Park on Sunday with Workington taking a serious beating, 62-29, first up before a Bears' team full of guests ran Newcastle much closer 48-41, with moments of great speedway included.

Robert Lambert went through the card in the first match with a perfect 15 point maximum, but went down hard in his third ride in the second match, brining heat 10 to a close woth his exclusion, and a few moments of concern when it was feared he might have badly twisted his revently injured knee, but he was back to take a paid win in Heat 13 behind Steve Worrall, who had also gone through the first match unbeaten by a Comet for 13+2 points.

Against the bears he also took 13 points, but was beaten twice by double-guest number one, Aaron Summers who warmed up to the second match with great effect scoring 5 as a Comet and 12 as a Bear.

Ludvig Lindgren took a perfect four ride maximum against Workington but took 10 from five in the Beats' match, curtailed after that snapping chain sent him slamming in to the second bend fence, although was happy to joke about it afterwards despite the severity of his fall.

Stuart Robson was paid for 11 first off followed by a five points haul while Ashley Morris took both Heat Eights well, as he has made a habit of, taking 6+1 and 7+1 respectively.

Ben Hopwood scored a total of 7+1 all tolled, but provided some great moves in the Redcar meeting, blasting off bend two high and wide to pass in fine style, while Alfie Bowtell added 6+2 from the two matches in a good steady fashion to end his Diamonds season on a high.
