    I am sure that I have read that Jenkins has ruled himself out of Championship racing to concentrate on his studies.

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Like Charlie boy I too live near Ty, I walk to the stadium every meeting takes me 25 to 30 minutes to get to the stadium. Ty literally lives on the doorstep, anybody who was given the opportunity to cut down such a drastic amount their travel to their job for the same money or around the same money would jump at the chance to do it. Ty also in the interview was at pains to thank the Promotion and fans for the opportunity and support that he had been given at Workington, and if wasn't down to long commute which now does not have to face he would have more than likely stayed with the Comets.

    Sheffield 2019

    So we now put down our calculators and the Tigers class of 2109 has been named. And I have to say that I very impressed as to what the team that the promotion has chosen, and i am confident that we have a team that has the potential to bring on some silverware for next season. Danny King should be if he is fully over his injury problems ( he assure's he is) be a very solid number 1 in this league. Kyle Howarth is a far better rider than his average and should be more than capable of improving on his starting average. Ty Proctor again should be able to make improvements, our main problem with Ty is keeping him fit. Kasper Andersen, for me one of the aces in the pack, we saw enough of him last season to suggest that on 5.20 he is a steal of an average, and I would not mind betting that if he had not signed for Sheffield there would have been a host of clubs ready to fit him in their teams. Broc Nichol show some promise last season, with a full season ahead of him should move forward plenty of experience within the Sheffield pits to give him some advice. Zaine Kennedy, bit of a unknown quantity, but again he has plenty of experience in the pits to help him along. Drew Kemp. a rider that due to change in points limit I think every club in Championship when Ipswich announce that they were moving up a league would have put into their side given what he has already achieved and done in his short career. Personally I am really looking forward to watching him develop over the season. Roll on April.

    Riders ride in number of leagues in a number of countries. As a young and up and coming rider you should aspire to ride against the best opposition. And the best opposition you can race against is out in Poland, at this moment. Young Drew has the potential to go very far in the sport and by the looks of it his ambition matches this, it should not be knocked and I am pleased that he has chosen to ride for our team to try and move his career along. .

    Workington 2019

    Well deserved first signing and one should have been for the Comets. Staying behind and ricking his chances of a visa shows commitment for a club and richly deserves to be name the first name on the team sheet.

    Sheffield 2019

    I would be very surprised to see Lawson at Sheffield for 2019, after the shenanigan's last season when agreeing to come and then signing for Lakeside, I think that feeling will still be a bit raw, add to the fact that his average is pretty high I think he may struggle to find a Championship place at all. And on a personally note I don't really fancy having in the team as he does not entertain me a bit of a gating tart for me. Schlein is a maybe, did read somewhere that this is to be his last season in racing, maybe he fancies returning where it all started with the Prowlers, but somehow I get the feeling that he is not totally comfortable with the Sheffield track. Of the three Danny King would be my choice, quality rider who can race a bit and of the three for me suits what Sheffield are looking for rather that the other two.

    Sheffield 2019

    Well Done to the Sheffield Promotion, for quality signing in Drew Kemp, and a name that would have been on most Championship teams shopping list. Also admire the riders ambition to sign for a big track club and get to learn a type of track that he will not be used to, looks like the Simon Stead factor has swayed the lad and what he can learn from Steady. Will be interesting to see who the two riders are to be announced a week on Wednesday, but so far so good.

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Hansen and Lidsey have raced league racing so come in on an 5 point average.

    Very much doubt it will be riding in Poland on a Sunday I would imagine.

    Sheffield 2019

    I would say that Andersen is a key rider, but there be a problem if he wants to ride Poland and race days been Sundays at Sheffield. Berge could be a problem as well with Grass track and Long track commitments. Its looking as though we will probably be predominately using British riders with a few Aussie riders. Edinburgh are going have to of load a few riders maybe Josh Pickering might be rider that could be released. One rider who will be able to name his price will be Drew Kemp.

    Sundays is fine by me, but I was not expecting Sunday race day, I was expecting Wednesday to be honest. Will be interesting to see how the changes will effect crowd figures. The new points limit was the shocker for me, going to take some careful and creative team building.

    They can own but they are not allowed to be a promoter of the club.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    I think that you only have to see the type of riders that Glasgow have signed over the present Promotion's time as owners of the club to realise the the type of budget's been pumped into the club. Unfortunately the big spending demands big success and this has not really happened for the club, and I always fear for the Glasgow supporters that this day would come around sometime unless they got that success. Lets hope that a solution can be found and the club does not go out of business, maybe if budgets were reduced things could get better financial and keep the Promotion at the club.

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Not defending the rider. as you and your other Scunny fan has pointed out Phillips was not scoring the points all season, so why did it take your Team Management while after the cut off point for team changes to decide that he needed dropping. Your Team Management were caught with their pants down, I find it more than frustrating that you vent your frustration out solely on the rider the rider, why not the Management team as well?
  21. Sad sad day for the sport. Feel for Lakeside as the problems seem to lie with the stadium owners, any I would imagine that the Lakeside promotion will more that likely look at this and realise that they cannot continue to use the Rye House stadium for now and the foreseeable future. For me Lakeside should do the honourable thing and forfeit the tie, a sad day for them not fault but needs must. But serious questions need to be raised as to why after a reduced fixture list and and the best weather for some years we are still trying resolve completing fixtures.

    Grand total of 2. And if they buy a season ticket god Scunny will be quids in.

    totally agree and what I was saying in a round about way.

    Scunthorpe 2019

    If you get caught with your pants down then chances are that you will get your arses slapped. By the sounds of it the rider could or should have been dropped anytime this season. But the Scunthorpe decided that to drop him/ rest him after the transfer deadline. To drop him would have meant the rules were broken. To rest him and the rider is deemed to withholding his services and receive a ban. The rider does not agree to been rested as he has riding commitments elsewhere and still wants to honour those commitments. Rob Godfrey was caught with his trousers firmly around his ankles and his arse must have been slapped so hard its a wonder he could sit down.
