King's Lynn Stars topped the Premier Trophy South table following Wednesday's 63-31 win over Newport.

Chris Schramm and Tomas Topinka were unbeaten by opponents, while Christian Henry had his best night yet for Lynn, scoring paid-10 points.

The club also announced they have secured a new team sponsor for the remainder of the season.

Local haulage firm Roger Warnes Transport will have their names on the team's bibs for the rest of 2009.

The Stars started their season without a major sponsor after the financial downturn led to a number of deals falling through.

After their win Stars team manager Rob Lyon was delighted that one of his summer signings was starting to achieve his potential.

"It's good to see Chris getting to grips with the track a lot more this week, and probably rode his best meeting for us I think," he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"A sixty-plus score line again, and some good racing tonight I thought, midway through the meeting Newport started to make a bit of a match of it."

Schramm, who scored maximum points for the second week running was delighted with his own contribution.

"It's going really quite well at home, I've got quite a good setup for the track, I'm just playing with it at the moment to make it that much better," he said.

The Stars' next fixture sees them travel to Scunthorpe in the Premier Trophy on Friday evening.
