  1. Oldest Surviving Team

    Oops - apologies. That will teach me to skim read a post during my lunch break
  2. Oldest Surviving Team

    Your post got me thinking so did some quick Googling for the Premiership teams I wasn't aware of. Not 100% sure on accuracy but sure you'll get the gist. Will try and do the Championship ones when I get more time. Premiership Belle Vue (1928 to present) King's Lynn (1965 to present but missed 1996) Leicester (1928 to 1931, 1937, 1948 to 1962, 1968 to 1983, 2011 to present) Poole (1948 to present but missed league racing in 1957) Rye House (1974 to 1993, 1999 to present) Somerset (2000 to present) Swindon (1928 to 1929 with open meetings, team racing from 1949 to present) Wolverhampton (1928, 1951 to 1954, 1965 to present but missed 1982/3)

    Imagine Belle Vue are the longest running of the presently running teams. Started in 1928 and kept running even through the Second World War (not team racing mind). Coventry also started in 1928 but didn't run during the war years and of course sadly missed out last season. Back in the National League for 2018, albeit at Leicester.

    Thinking more at the top of the team rather than the bottom. Hoping I'm wrong

    Got a feeling there will be a Danish feel to this evening's proceedings but maybe not the main Dane everyone is hoping for

    What the same Ty Proctor who averaged more than Thomas Jorgensen (in the same team) who was pretty much our rider of the season? The same Ty Procter who averaged more than Heeps, Auty, Palm-Toft, Kerr, Rose, Bates & Robson amongst others. Think people are doing him a disservice. He'll know most of the Premiership tracks, seems to be a good team man and ridden very well at Lynn previously. it might work, it might not but I'm at least going to give him a chance before writing him off.

    Will see how the season starts before criticising the side, we've got to at least give them a chance. Proctor wouldn't have been my first choice, but at least give him a fair crack of the whip. Also most of us haven't got a real idea about what to expect from Kasper Andersen. If he comes in and clicks at reserve, the dynamics of the team changes. The one thing I do hope is that if things aren't working, we are proactive with making changes. The promotion do seem overly loyal/patient with underperforming riders at times. Poole & Swindon both spring to mind in being good at strengthening during the season. We tend to limp along until changes are forced upon us through injury.

    Don't think Manzarez is in the 1-7 though I've heard he's keen. Replace him with Lewis Rose. Lewis Kerr at reserve. Adding Iversen & Lambert is a must. I'm sure Niels will be back, all the signs point that way. Guess depends on what happens with talks with Robert.

    Fair enough, not read the statement. Only saw the news on here. Kennett is 6.39 so that leaves 6.42 for the final one if they used him. Could fit Doyle & Morley in.
  10. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Top detective work sir Possibly 2+2=5 or maybe not. Just seems a bit random for him to suddenly follow 3 Lynn related accounts in one go. Think the conversion rate is 1.3 so that would make him 5.50. Means we should always have a strong reserve (either Kerr, Rose or Proctor) to partner Andersen.
  11. Rye House 2018

    Can't see Rye not using Harris, Nicholls & KK again. Not sure what that would leave for final two places but wouldn't be surprised to see Kennett back and maybe Morley/Perks for final reserve spot.
  12. Kings Lynn 2018..

    It's a moot point discussing Doyle because as I understand it, he's not coming. i also noticed a rider seemed happy on twitter yesterday and the most recent people he's followed are Dale and two (potential) new team mates. Seem to point he's in the mix for a team spot. Wont spoil the fun by naming him

    Pretty sure Kerr will be back at Lynn next year. He all but confirmed it before deleting the tweet.
  14. Kings Lynn 2018..

    I believe so. Might be a tough ask for him to get near that but guess he has something about him. I can see a couple of possible connections to see why he's ended up with us. He used to be at Esbjerg who's team manager is Tom P. Madsen. Also it's Niels' Danish side. Hopefully that means that Niels recommended him and will be back to look mentor him.

    Could be, but like Haza I've been told he's signed. Apparently he spent sometime staying at the stadium a few weeks ago. I just didn't want to to be the first to blab
