    And what's your point? That they shouldn't be allowed to pay their way and have a good skid?

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Expect some wildly differing levels of co-operation from the various councils, counties, cities, even countries.......

    Very interesting and encouraging announcement today about Monarchs' plans for an Academy conduit -- leading from tiny toddlers' bikes right up to the Championship team.

    Berwick Bullets 2021

    Closed P&P for the Bullets at Shielfield tonight. Plus Berwick Academy NJL riders such as Luke Harrison, and a few invited guests, mostly called either Pijper or McGurk......

    Isn't it P&P for just the Bullets, plus Academy (NJL) riders?

    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    Is this not a case for taking up the government offer of cash to cover a club's outgoings due to Covid restrictions?

    Whats actually going on?

    Looking at the IoW situation from afar, l'm baffled as to why such a go-ahead, progressive promotion (as l'm repeatedly told they are) felt they couldn't continue to promote their terrific brand of speedway in what would be a nine-team NDL? All the reduced points limit would in effect have meant is they would have to replace one seven-point rider with a new three-pointer -- and if their promotional ideas are so effervescent, their shows so attractive to their public -- surely this shouldn't have been a deal-breaker? The NDL set-up seems to suit the other eight teams well enough -- what is it that the IoW promotion feel would prevent them continuing to put on their much-acclaimed presentations?

    Berwick Bullets 2021

    I'll stand by my original post - - four doubles, two singles and a stream.. A nice mixed selection box!

    Plymouth Gladiators 2021

    That's an interesting thought. Let's imagine that everything goes well, crowds return and there is a Championship Pairs (at Somerset, a handy neutral venue, the night before Cardiff) featuring all twelve clubs. A Plymouth walkover - - or are there any other opinions?

    Berwick Bullets 2021

    Yeah, we could each be right -- or wrong! I was taking my data from the BSPL site, which listed four. Now the Bullets (and Bandits) fixtures are on club website, it is still a bit hazy, as the club site has Bandits v Newcastle on BOTH June 19th (which would be a double-header) and July 3....... BSPL have that match on July 3rd, as has the Newcastle website.

    IOW 2020

    Well, these are special times. What has happened in the past, in every walk of life, far beyond speedway, has been swept aside by the global pandemic. While the Island promotion have every right to decline membership of this year's 3rd Division, it might be worth thinking that, if the team average had been set higher, say at 39 or above (as l have seen quoted as their preference) we might not have had an eight-club NDL this time around, with other teams unwilling, or unable to join the league under such terms. While having every sympathy for the deprived Island fans, l personally feel their promotion's withdrawal might be seen in hindsight as a somewhat excessive reaction to a decision which has been accepted by the remaining eight clubs - - with just a whiff of the terrible Coventry/Peterborough furore from a few years back....

    Berwick Bullets 2021

    Berwick's fixture list at present offers only four double-headers (incorporating NDL matches with Belle Vue, Leicester, Kent and Eastbourne) plus two stand-alone NDL matches (Newcastle and Mildenhall) and the opening meeting of the new UK season on May 1 (against Armadale) which will be a closed-door event, streamed live around the planet! If this schedule is maintained (fixture-lists can prove pliable) having just four double-headers may retain their novelty as 'special occasions' and allow extra promotion of the matches at the appropriate time. Despite a personal preference for stand-alone matches, l readily submit to the financial advantage of running the occasional (and four, over a season, is about right) well-promoted CL/NDL double-header instead of two separate meetings.

    Championship League Predictions

    Bullets might be pushing it to finish 11th, but Bandits will be much higher than 9th......

    Eastbourne 2021

    Yes, the NJL is most certainly running a full programme, and has published the competing teams, and the format -- which this season adds 250cc racers to the mix -- a while ago. I have no knowledge of what the MDL and/or SDL are planning.
