    Martin wasn't Arthur's son. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Lampkin

    They lived quite near me, I remember Martin riding second halves at Halifax, there was another brother Alan, I think he was also known as Sid.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    While this side has a fairly solid look to it, too many here won't improve their averages and the latter heats might be something of a struggle.

    I think they might have a point, particularly as there look to be some reasonable alternatives mentioned, that would retain it for sports use.

    Sheffield 2020

    And they have a man in charge who can really make seven riders into a team.

    You forgot the grey mare.

    They did say that they MIGHT only have to make one change.

    Redcar 2020

    I would hope he does get a NDL ride, it is after all supposed to be a development league but sadly it seems to be over populated by career third tier riders and veterans.

    Leicester Lions 2020

    Probably so but Sheffield's decision was much criticised on here and Kemp actually had a decent average.

    I would say the Thompson boys are better riders than those you've named, every so often naturals come along (the last one was Dan Bewley) and they need to progress quickly, anyway some of those on your list aren't finished yet.

    Lack of opportunity is certainly a factor, as is cost, look at the equipment some of these beginners have, I can remember the day when some internationals turned up with one bike on a rack on the back of the car. It's good that we now have more opportunities for under age riders but a young bloke should be able to afford to race and many can't.

    Redcar 2020

    That would depend how you read it.

    Redcar but I'm not a frequent visitor, I'm getting on a bit, not always well and unfit to drive, I started in the 50s and would travel all over to the big meetings or away matches for my local Halifax and Bradford clubs.

    Doubling up matters to me but I respect your opinion.
