  1. The rivalry goes back many years... mainly due to the clueless Devil Darren and his mates complete inability to accept banter as exactly that... banter. They've been bitter ever since.... and long may it continue
  2. Not often right and seems you're wrong again... suggest you read the rule book.
  3. He's well beyond stupid.... Every post he makes is designed to damage the credability of Scunthorpe Speedway.

    Plymouth v Scunthorpe

    Scunny had the majority of race winners.. enough to normally win a meeting... the obvious weak links cost us tonight, too many 0's on the scorecard.

    Amongst the supporters methinks... being in the box all those years was great, but I've missed the crack of being with mates in the crowd.

    I'm very grateful the town still has speedway team to support. Rob does a grand job keeping us afloat and providing us with a competitive 'home' team. My comment was a generalisation of all things 'Scunthorpe'. Like many Northern towns, we get treated like an Industrial outpost, a wasteland Central Government rarely takes much notice of when it comes to funding. A hard, run down town, its had its fair share of knocks over the years...but with that, it's bred a degree of apathy... we're expected to accept whatever you get, and we generally do. For what its worth, I think the team Rob has put together is a big improvement on the one that started last year. I didn't get to any meetings last year, but very much looking forward to attending next.

    Its a Scunny thing... whatever the sport, whatever the issue.. its in our DNA to accept mediocrity, it'll never change.

    I'd agree with that (if, as we expect, its Aarnio).. maybe it be better to just announce the three heat leaders in one swoop

    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
