    workington ..

    I'm sure you Brian and most Birmingham fans were thankful for the NDL, as we were at Eastbourne. Now we are both back in the middle tier.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Thank you for pointing that out. It is 1,403.6 per 100,000.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    I don't have the time to check Covid-19 deaths in Leicester but the city is still No 1when it comes to Coronavirus cases per 100,000 of population. The figure is 1,4036 per 100,00 well clear of Ashford which is is 2nd on list at 1,045.

    berwick bandits 2021

    I have seen that Brennan has been to Plymouth a couple of times and was with the Eagles at King's Lynn. I'm not sure what Leon has done this year but full credit to him for going. He will have learned loads...as Tom did when he did the U-19s a couple of years ago. Riding in Europe is the way forward for these youngsters as has been shown by Robert Lambert; an extraordinary talent who has raced in the hard leagues of Poland where the promoters are, to coin a phrase, Ruthless.

    Tom Brennan 4th in u21 semi today. Qualifies for the final. Well done Tom. What a result.

    Not this year. No-one has done a lap at Eastbourne this year ...stadium is closed for renovations. Tom been to Plymouth and Kings Lynn.

    Eastbourne 2020

    I would say today's statement from Eastbourne Speedway is a model of how to communicate with supporters in a transparent and open way. It sets out what's been happening, the decisions that have been made and the reasons. Now we know where we stand. It's all on the website.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    I was looking at the Eastbourne website and the interview with Ian Jordan. He was sitting in what was once called the Royal Box. I can see the seats are numbered. I can't remember them being numbered last year. Maybe they wear and I took no notice.

    Eastbourne 2020

    You will be most welcome--guess you will have to buy tickets in advance so numbers can be controlled and for people's name/addresses register for the track and trace folk. We have to hope for a dry autumn. Fingers crossed.

    Eastbourne 2020

    I'm holding on to the hope of some speedway late-on at Arlington this year, after listening to Ian Jordan today. Be great to get some action in 2020, even it is limited to some October action. I wonder if Eagles will also have a run at NDL level. They've got the bones of a decent team, depending on the averages. A couple of CL-level matches, some ND, all backed with the MSDL Seagulls would be a real result.

    I'm really getting into Polish Speedway. Was always a quick skim in the past to see if any Eastbourne riders got a mention. Following it now and reading the heat details.

    British Championship Series

    The decision whether to open, run meetings and the type of meeting is down to individual promoters. Personally, I don't see this proposed travelling 'circus' as a crowd puller.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Defeatist and brave in the same breath. But what else can you do? I've watched speedway at Central Park a few times but can't now recall: is it a greyhound track? If so, no surprise they have bailed out of 2020.

    Season Cancelled

    It is just the leagues that have been binned. Clubs have an option to run challenge matches in October, if crowds are allowed.

    Eastbourne 2020

    Superb news this morning about the Eagles youngsters, all called up for European action next month. Club assets Tom Brennan and Jason Edwards, along with Drew Kemp, on loan from Ipswich, are in the Euro u-19 qualifier on August 14. Tom is in the Euro U21 qualifier on August 1. This is brilliant for these youngsters and for the Eagles. Eastbourne have gone down the route the last couple of years of backing the Brits. Shows what can be done. Especially pleased for Tom, after last year's terrible injury. I'm told he has had lots of laps already this year in practice sessions, has worked on his body strength, and is looking really strong. Congratulation to Tom, Jason and Drew and to the Eagles management.

    Corona virus

    Cyril Crane used to get the crowd going wild, cheering, booing as he stalked over the centre green at King's Lynn, up the ladder where he was then seen wildly waving his arms around in the referee's box and going generally bananas. Crowd loved it. Cyril did this for total effect (on most occasions) to get the crowd going. He would be asking the ref: would you like a cup of tea? do you take milk? What about sugar? Can we get you some crisps, or a chocolate bar? Those were certainly the days.

    Corona virus

    I think for speedway 20 per cent will be insufficient in many cases.

    Ove Fundin came to King's Lynn once for a 2nd half.

    Corona virus

    Probably not the media...as the words are used in many countries. Probably the words were first used by WHO. Be interesting to know.
