  1. So it looks like that Mr Bates will be getting "2" wooden spoons this season !!!,
  2. According to the Scunthorpe speedway site it was Redcar at the EDW last night !! Just about sums it up. I recon that there is not one black cat left in Scunthorpe now . After last nights injuries every member of the team has now missed meetings at some time in the season .I feel sorry for Rob, as imo he put a very good side together at the start ,and with all the injuries things just have not worked out. Lets hope that the team progresses in the two semi finals yet to come and something can be saved of the season.
  3. Totally agree I was stood opposite the start line and MOST of the jump starts came from a desperate Sheffield side!!
  4. This should be a good meeting if all the former Sheffield riders are in attendance. That is if it is on as up to now at 09:36 there is NO mention of this meeting on the Scunthorpe Web- site. The last thing on it is telling us that the amateur meeting to be held on Sunday 29 July is off . Not everybody has access to Twitter etc where it seems most information is now posted from Scunthorpe Speedway ! It would be very much appreciated if meetings etc where posted on the web site as they used to be in the past. Thanks Rob.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    I have just been on the Redcars Speedway web page and it has Richard Lawson , Aaron Summers and Joe Lawlor as guests for Scuni on Thursday,
  6. Any one know who the replacement riders are yet and if there are any more changes apart from Danny and Kyle.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    Good morning!! 36 races around Scuni. and only 9 points scored. By now I would have expected at least 3 points a meeting, which is not out of the way considering his experience in the National League,

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    See my post on page 1 Scorpions v Lakeside 22-6-18.
  9. Sorry but it is time for Danny to go. 5 points from 15 races speaks for itself. A very pleasant young man but it seams to me ( and others ) that his hart is not in the cut and thrust of Championship racing .Racing for Coventry v Cradley 7points from 5 races, and a league 7.49 average shows lad has the ability to be successful, but just seems to have something missing in his drive to be able to present this form in the Championship .
  10. HOW are the two qualifying rounds going to work?? 11 into 2 groups I don't think so. Wouldn't it be better to give the winners of the 4s in 2017 a by to the final and have 2 groups with the same number of teams in them, the winners going to the final with the highest points scoring 2nd team from the groups. If my memory is correct one of the past discussions was that the winners of the last years final should be able to defend the title, and that all teams should be at the meeting ( remember all the fuss when 2 teams were taken out then re-instated ) Why make something so difficult when the answer to a good meeting is so simple!! don't the organisers of these events learn from the past or do they just like to upset the fans.
  11. How about Last years winner or Redcar direct to the final. This gives 2 groups of 5. Winners of the group to the final, both 2nd teams have a race off or the highest scoring team goes through, giving 4 teams in the final.

    Championship Shield

    That's one way, but if you take points scored minus points against you get a totally different result over the 6/4 matches. so which is it, do you know? because I don't.
  13. Can someone please explain how the 4th place team is selected. With having 2 groups of 4 teams and one of 3, the 2nd highest scoring team is awarded 4th place, ( so it says on the SGB Shield chart page ). What I would like to know is how this is calculated? Is it an average points scored: most wins; etc or something else that no one knows until the top teams of the 3 groups are known???
  14. Lets all hope he scores more then Lewis Kerr did (5 points ) at Newcastle !!
