    Two teams coming up from the NL

    Following our announcement issued on Thursday 15th November after the promoters’ AGM from 12th - 14th November 2018, we would like to issue this latest update: "There have been some significant developments in the past week regarding the day-to-day management and operations of Arlington Stadium which have now reached an exciting and positive conclusion. “The future direction of Eastbourne Eagles Speedway Club has been intrinsically linked with these prolonged discussions; and we are delighted to report an equally exciting and positive conclusion. “Eastbourne Eagles will be pressing ahead with plans to accept an invite to join the British Speedway Championship League in the coming week, and to also announce a new promotional and management structure in the same timescale. “We have been especially active in on track matters and rider recruitment; with the aim of building a strong side with the potential to have League and Cup success; and will be in a position to name new team members; together with a new title sponsor; and other exciting sponsorship; media, marketing and supporter news and packages in the next week. “We anticipate making a further more detailed announcement to you all over the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of December when we hope to give you all a complete insight into the prospect of a truly exciting and positive new era and 2019 season, on and off the track; and a vision of a 3-5 year plan for Arlington Stadium and the Eastbourne Eagles."

    Coventry v Eastbourne Play Offs.

    COVENTRY know a fast start is essential if they are to pull off an incredible comeback in the National League play-offs on Saturday. TheEuropress Bees host Eastbourne at Leicester (6.30pm start) in the second leg of their semi-final, trailing by 30 points after a tough night at Arlington on Wednesday. They now need to exceed their biggest score of the season so far, but they have previously hit the 59-point mark three times at home in league matches. Both sides are at full strength with Jon Armstrong, Danny Phillips and Ryan MacDonald all returning for the Bees, whilst Ethan Spiller is available for the Eagles. Coventry manager Martyn Macdonald said: “I’m sure when the first bloke got to the foot of Everest he thought there was a massive mountain to climb, and that they’d never be able to do it! “But it’s a funny old game, and although the tie is 50 per cent over there’s still 50 per cent to go, and it’s been proved in the last few weeks elsewhere that teams can come back from a massive deficit and win. “Obviously the first five heats or so on Saturday are crucial, and we’ve got to get going with some 5-1s immediately to put them under some pressure. “We didn’t ride well on Wednesday, and they were just too good on the night. Everywhere they put a bike on the track they seemed to go forward compared to us,and obviously, the 19 points from Charlie Brooks at reserve made a huge difference. “Fair play to the kid, he wasn’t scared to go anywhere on the track, he was up under the air-fence at times and it’s no wonder he scored the points he did. I’m sure he’ll remember that meeting forever. “But I thought about it afterwards and really we did no worse there than Mildenhall a few days earlier, and they’ve been head and shoulders above everyone all season, although I do suspect Mildenhall probably rode better than us. “Every one of our riders were trying, though, and I couldn’t fault Nathan Stonenman as a guest getting stuck in. You get nights like that sometimes, and now we need to see if we can turn it around and even if not, still finish on a high.” Supporters are reminded that Saturday’s meeting starts at 6.30pm and a free racecard is available on admission. COVENTRY: Connor Mountain, Luke Harris, Danny Phillips, Luke Ruddick, Jon Armstrong, Jamie Halder, Ryan MacDonald. EASTBOURNE: Georgie Wood, Jason Edwards, Mark Baseby, Ethan Spiller, Tom Brennan, Charley Powell, Charlie Brooks.

    Leicester Lions 2018

    I actually emailed Leicester Speedway and asked for clarification (yes I'm that sad) . I was told that they now intend to stick with the original team, so now there is no changes. An article will appear in the Leicester Mercury newspaper. Why they didn't say this themselves...............who knows.
  7. Do a screenshot of it
  8. I would like to think that Leicester will win this. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Bell Vue victory. Best I can do
  9. I would imagine they had a good reason. Why else would they? Perhaps they feel that they don't need to explain or that they have already done so. I don't know why it was called off. I assume they have stated that the track was no longer safe to carry on, just because you don't agree doesn't mean they are wrong. The rules to call off are, or should be, stated in the club programme. Perhaps they will implement reduced admission to the next home meeting. The fact of the matter is it was called off. If you're not happy with that write to them see what they say. You can go around in circles forever and a day, if you've been going to speedway for any length of time you will know, I'm afraid, that is just the way it is run.
  10. Who gives a toss who's to blame, I very much dought if just one person has the ability to call a meeting off anyway. If you're that fed up with the situation write to Poole speedway and see what they have to say. Why not just accept the situation and if your really unhappy don't go again.
  11. There is a difference between confidence and cockiness. Speedway is a funny old game, might be well to remember that.
  12. In fairness I would'nt count on it. Think they would probably struggle in the Championship at the moment

    Leicester Lions 2018

    Although some people make money from Speedway meetings, the vast majority are volunteers. Keen enthusiasts who love the sport, without them there would be no speedway in the UK. All though it is fine to use volunteers as track staff, turnstiles operators etc. When it comes to the presentation side of a meeting to give a smooth, professionally presented event. You get what you pay for. .................... and in the case of Speedway , that is fairly evident.
