    Take Brennan away from the comfort of Arlington & he is not that impressive, in fact his away average is only 6.88 against Kinsley's 7.78.

    NO. Now if it was Cradley that would be different!

    Play Off Run In

    I assume the new averages come out 1st October, if thats the case then its another reason for Mild to pick Kent. Hurry will be 4th in the averages so Kent will effectively lose their No1 & only be able to use r/r to cover for Hurry (Rowe, Hampshire & reserves). Makes them sitting ducks in the play offs & 2nd leg of the KO cup.

    Play Off Run In

    The only way Eastbourne won't qualify is if Birmingham win at Mildenhall (no chance). So they may as well go to Buxton when they have a full team & not ride a double header the night before.

    Eastbourne 2018

    Buxton offered Eastbourne this sunday (16th) to have their meeting but Eastbourne said they couldn't make it.

    Cradley v Mildenhall

    I really don't see anything wrong with Cradley entering a team in the NT this year & if it keeps the club running thats good, but by allowing them to cherry pick any riders they want from all the other teams (to get under the points limit) means they were guaranteed to at least reach the final. This is what has caused unnecessary friction with the rest of the league and pretty much made the trophy a non event for the other teams, which must have affected their crowds. There were plenty of riders without team places to make up a competitive team, why were they not told to make up a team from these riders. Fair play to Mildenhall this year & good luck in the 2nd leg.

    Cradley v Mildenhall

    Im surprised 'Cradley' are not allowed a guest for Taylor.

    Colts vs Kings

    There is only 1 reason Wood or Morley would get a ride at Kent & that is if Bowens injury does not allow him to return, as I'm sure he will want to do another season if fit. I would pick Bowen at No1 over any other rider in the league.

    Colts vs Kings

    O right. William O'Keefe is named in the Kent 1-7 so is our usual reserve, Couzins replaced him at Kent on Monday because O'Keefe was on holiday.

    Colts vs Kings

    Wilson is for Bickley, Morley for Hurry, Wood for Thomas but i don't no who the 4th guest is? I no what you mean people like to see the same team (myself included) & it gets really frustrating when a series of guests show up, but this is a development league (yes i no its now a 3rd division) thats why I am actually in favour of the reason Thomas & Bickley are missing, its a natural progression to ride in the next league up & beyond & to improve they have to ride against stronger opposition. At Kent we have noticed a big improvement in Thomas since he started riding at Glasgow.

    Colts vs Kings

    As i am travelling up for this meeting i was wondering why replacing missing riders will make it a farce? I also seem to have missed a guest, i thought the guests were, Wood, Morley & Wilson, just wondering who the other guest was?

    Buxton v Kent today is called off.

    Buxton Vs Kent (NL) 26/08/2018

    They did not call off early. The forecast was a belt of light rain passing through, this was forecast for days before hand. B V were asked by the Kent management early morning if it was going ahead & were told definitely yes. I no of at least 4 cars that made a wasted trip up (me included). B V then called it off after lunch, when we got the message we were 30 mins away from the track. I have absolutely no problem with calling it off, but why not when its against a team from the other end of England call if off earlier in the morning, the rain was forecasted for days. As you say there was little if any rain, but that can happen when a match is called off based on a forecast. The match at Kent v B V was not called off because of forecasted rain but because of over night rain flooding the track.

    Buxton Vs Kent (NL) 26/08/2018

    The forecast for tomorrow does not look good, I no Buxton are usually very good at giving an early call to save the long trip up, unlike Belle Vue last week.

    Stoke v Kent

    I think it’s because of a pre arranged grasstrack commitment.
