    Doyle had strained his back earlier in the match and wasn't fit to take another ride .

    Poole v Somerset. prem B 27/8/18 12.30pm.

    I am fully aware that he said it on TV but it was tongue in cheek and Poole bit hook line and sinker !!! As far as TV entertainment value goes we thought it was a great meeting and so did they. By the way, how did your lot get on tonight !!!

    Poole v Somerset. prem B 27/8/18 12.30pm.

    Poole should be fined heavily for that, why wasn't the referee consulted after the incident with JD ? You lot had a nerve accusing Somerset of doctoring the track at Oaktree ! At least we tend ours !!! Yours resembles a bomb site !!!

    They certainly were ray c !!! I wish we still had them !!! Nobody moaned quite so much then either, least of all Poole ! In those days they were a good outfit of fans and riders. One Malcolm Simmons springs to mind !!!

    What ? Like the "Track Spare" we used to have in the old days !!! I remember Frank Aufrett who rode for Leicester in the 70s rode the "Track Spare" one meeting because his own had packed up and he scored the most points in that match than he had all season !!! It was reported that he liked it so much he offered Vic White money to by it from the club !!!

    Didn't take too many meetings for the Wimbourne Road Faithful to get back to there old carping ways and whinging at just about everything. Why can't you lot be gracious in defeat for once !!! You were stuffed !!! End of !!!

    FRN have never been a good idea, anybody with half an idea about finances and figures would know that by having FRN's you cut down your potential foot fall through turnstiles as you don't get the floating fans that will pull in a couple or more Premiership meetings a week but now have to be content with only one !

    What a shame there are not more level headed, eloquent people like yourself on these forums. Well written and unlike most of the garbage written on here a good read. Thank you.

    Somerset v Poole Prem A. 20/6/18

    A bit like his riding career as for longevity !!! Fair enough, his riding career wasn't so fruitful but of course the teams around him weren't that good, unlike the teams he had at Somerset.

    Garry May in his riding days and now, standing next to Charles Wright who he has binned a far better rider than May could have dreamed of being !!!

    Somerset 2018

    This I suspect has been bubbling for the last month or so since the track was in such poor state and the riders showed their displeasure. Wrighty being Wrighty is a nice bloke but as a northern chap calls a spade a shovel and wouldn't have minced his words if he was being gagged by the promotion. The track didn't suit his style and he was being hampered from giving his best and I think that's why it's boiled over and May has cut his nose off to spite his face IMO. Doyle kicked up a fuss but Miss H wouldn't upset him because he is WC. There by hangs another point in question, any WC is only as good as his last ride and he won the Crown last year ! He hasn't come to the party in the guise of WC, far from it !!! There is frustration all around in the Somerset camp !!!
