    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2022

    Good signing, likeable lad, goes well round Scunny. If the team is more or less as rumoured, the only question mark left is whether its Aarnio or A.N.Other for 3rd heat leader spot.

    Unfortunately I've heard the same... That's me...I'm done... Scunny Speedway 50 years old today, it's played a major part of my life... I started supporting in 1974. Volunteering since the rebirth in 2005... Anyone want a crack at Incident Recording/Timekeeping get your applications in to the promotion... Its a good crack, you'll see sides to speedway general supporters don't see... And you get the best seat in the house! Over n out!

    Some teams have managed to spark some interest and enthusiasm... and good luck to them. My team, no such thing, same old same old... If Jake comes over and rides for someone else, that'd be the final straw for me. I've never felt so despondent going into a new season. Think my time as a supporter/volunteer is coming to an end.

    A good race track and close racing is one thing... as a home fan, losing at home on a regular basis is another, its demoralising... sadly that all I see happening with our proposed line up There's not much in this Scorpions line up that excites me, too many journeymen, Palin aside, where's the youth? There's a couple of riders in there that bore the pants off you... why no Ryan Kinsley? Sorry to seem despondent and negative... but after enduring the year we have, I need something to ignite some interest, so far there hasn't been any. I fear my involvement in the sport is coming to an end.

    I'm struggling to find any enthusiasm for speedway this year....hopefully as the season draws nearer i'll feel different. Obviously the covid situation is effecting everyone and everything, especially speedway....rider shortage particularly being my main beef...Scunny (and others) having to go extremely weak due to inability to fill the gaps makes me wonder if its worth it. Perhaps the speedway bosses have caused their own problem. If my math is correct (that would be a first lol), there's currently a 94 strong pool of riders in the top two leagues, 32 of which double up. Had they evened the leagues out (in terms of teams) to 9 premier and 9 championship, allowing the premier teams 5 double uppers, that would equate to a rider pool of 81.....the point i'm making is by increasing the number of clubs in the premier league would've eased the current rider shortage.

    Think Jake would require to double up to make it worth it... his place at Ipswich is taken

    I'm still hoping for two changes.... this one, I believe strengthens us at reserve.... then another for Jake's replacement. I doubt that'll happen though, too much of a rider shortage. Can see us going very understrength.

    As someone becoming increasingly bored of the team situation at Scunny... and someone getting used to life in the covid era... any inclusion of James Sargeant would be the end of my involvement in the sport.... I need my interest igniting, unless things change I fear im done with the sport.

    We all know you Dan.... Scunny through n through, you'll never desert the Scorpions. Was you p****d when you wrote that lol. Feel for Rob having to find a replacement for Jake... hope he can pull something out the bag.

    Whatever team we end up with... i'm anticipating a change or two to our original line up... we might get smashed at Poole... but Plymouth... if that happens we must be crap...

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    I know making several changes isn't likely to happen, difficult task given the limited rider availability! If the season gets underway, which is far from a given..it shouldn't be a case of just having speedway back. We need to reinvigorate interest, if we put a team out simply to make numbers up, that's my interest gone and probably forever.

    As if that would ever happen... Tai could've done so much for Scunthorpe Speedway since winning his first world championship.. he's done nothin. As for the Scorpions 2021... since Jakes announcement, reckon we need a major rebuild ... I think we need 3 new riders not just a replacement for Jake... I'd sooner us withdraw from the league than be just a number.

    Any idea of Theo's average?

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    Hardly inspiring....I did hear whispers of it being a short term deal, however no mention of that in the press release....so maybe not.

    Devastating news..... RIP Danny
