    I don't see any alternative. I've stopped keeping programmes but my recollection is of his scoring quite heavily round BP within the last 2 or 3 years and Roy offering the view that he couldn't join us because we run on Sundays: however if I'm wrong about that, I apologize. My recollection is of him and the Australian Scott Smith doing laps in the second half around that time.

    Thanks, PTBAB - I was aware of that but was trying (perhaps unsuccessfully) to make the point that if the Newcastle team is to be strengthened it's not only one of the reserve berths that might be looked at.

    It's all about opinions. And you've got a lot of 'em! :-) I'm no statto but iirc Ulrich's record round BP puts Tommy Gun's in the shade.

    Ruffy, if you were -- just for the sake of argument - putting together a Diamonds team, would you consider Ulli to ride, say, at no. 5?

    You've lost me there, sorry.

    Berwick v Edinburgh Saturday 15 June, 7pm

    I don't know, why were they? (Only joking...) Face it, Berwick is usually Baltic. Good atmos at Shielfield generally tho, which is why we attend fairly regularly.

    Dandelion, may I suggest you take up watching Love Island? You've been on Fantasy Island too long. Does anyone know if we had any interest in Ulli before he signed down the road? Unlike some I could mention he goes round BP like a train.

    Everything at Berwick is always cold, where are you keeping the polar bears this season?

    Newcastle v Berwick KO Cup Sunday 2 June at 5.30pm

    As I've been trying to say, there may be a bigger picture here which makes this a pointless (no pun intended!) exercise. We'll see.

    He was only impressive in comparison with others on Sunday. Very decent though, yes. However unless my memory fails me he was riding in the Conference for Redcar ten years or so ago and didn't make the step up. For my money the discussion on our reserves is academic. We shouldn't let the perfect be the downfall of the good.

    Marginal decision - viewing at Redcar can be tricky if, like us, you arrive close to the start time. I'll keep an eye on the weather and on the field, I think.

    Happy with this signing...hopefully some tall scoring from reserve.

    Not for me. He looked several steps behind Max Clegg and surely, if we're talking about replacing Simon L, it has to be a rider at least as good as Max. Bukhave hasn't set the heather on fire in the UK previously but - for the present at least - he is well ahead of MacDonald, who is not Josh Pickering Mk. 2.

    On the strength of tonight at Redcar, from.a Diamonds perspective I wouldn't be interested in Jedd List at all, and I wouldn't fall over myself to sign Josh MacDonald. Granted MacDonald looked in a different league to List but not competitive with Max Clegg. I don't know what Bukhave"s average is (just like others on here, possibly!) but he was head and shoulders above the Australians and looks as though he might be a proper rider.

    Julie Lewis Memorial @ Redcar 24/5/19

    I thought that this was a very enjoyable meeting - a very well thought out format and some top class racing to match. The Redcar promotion should take a bow!
