    Swindon - Belle Vue 17 6 19

    He has not looked dominant this year thus far, the track has been up and down.Heeps beat Doyley on merit and if i hazard a guess i recon it could be 1 a piece tonight.

    Could Anders Thomsen be an option? i cant see Tobi being back within two month's so it is going to be a difficult decision for Rosco.

    Swindon - Belle Vue 17 6 19

    Cant wait for this meeting a tough ask with no Tobi i think a narrow home win.If the track is as good as the other week i can see Fricke having a field day he is improving rapidly i love watching him ride reminds me so much of Leigh Adams.

    Kent Kings vs Leicester Cubs

    Will Gilkes be fit for the 23rd the Swindon match?

    Young Rowe at Swindon is improving rapidly, and i have followed him along with A- ORLOV ( Avid Swindon fan) since his mini track appearances at the Abbey.My big hope is Anders can go Prem with the Robins by 2021/22 as you said we have some real talent coming through now and the N.L is a terrific route to come through.

    Belle Vue Colts 2019

    A terrific amount of talent in this side reminds me of going back to the great Dent Oliver era young lads getting a chance.I hope two or three come out of this period and go on and have careers in speedway.Just naming a few Bickley, Rowe, Palin, Thompson ( 2) Kelly, Ablitt, Gilkes, Mcgurk(2) Simpson,Freeman, Wirtzfield,(etc) how exciting is the NL just shows you what that plank Cook knows about speedway.

    Belle vue v Peterboro 13th june thursday

    Mike i don't what is happening at most clubs but my club Swindon with Lee Kilby on board progress is being made.The other week one of the bars was packed with potential sponsors also our club is doing a lot to encourage youngsters (i.e.) going in the pits meeting there heroes the riders.Lee Kilby i would say is in the Barry Bishop mould he has seen the good old days (i.e.with his great dad) but he is innovative and his greatest strength is his people skills.He is always willing to speak and listen and we need a lot more of these people in Speedway for the sport to move on.

    Belle vue v Peterboro 13th june thursday

    Great post Hawk at Swindon we have Doyley look i love watching him ride but can we really afford him getting 12/1400 everyweek?.What i would like to see happen for the sport to survive is for every club to cut its cloth and run it as a viable long term business.It is a myth to believe that say bringing a Woffinden say in at Wolves would put 500 on the gate he would not.The extra few fans you would get would only go towards paying Tai the days of say a Ivan/Briggo/Ole riding and putting an extra 300 on the gate are long gone.Get more fixtures get the product right and start from there speedway when put together correctly is spectacular whatever the level of rider.

    Really would be great if Mr Bishop did, other posters over the month's have really praised how good the Isle of Wight is.In this day and age and in this difficult climate under Bishop they are reaching out a great family day out.He seems to have a balance pay the bills get some of the new punters back again and put money into the future .

    You know more about the NL product than me Sings- but the league is doing a great job. Last night i watched the young Brennan and/ Mum video on the Eastbourne tv and god how professional and heartwhelming was that.What they have achieved with there media side of things is terrific so Cook's ridiculous comments should not tar all the Eastbourne set up with the same brush.

    Lyager would be a really good shout, Pickering/ Stewart are two others i would consider if they were available.

    Swindon 2019

    What do Budgie fans think do we sign Starke now?? or wait and go in a different direction.Even with Starke ( Pickering mentioned) i believe this side will win the league now Jensen on a 4.51 average a steal unreal really.

    Ipswich v Swindon Prem Lge 13th June 2019

    Glad this is off to be honest, i would rather see two full strength sides ride i did fancy a close home win.

    Thanks City, i have only ever been there once before in 1975 when the Hovercraft came out.

    Totally agree with you, to think Chadster how riders in the 60s /70s would win a second half junior scurry then line up against the likes of Briggs in there next race.It is amazing how many riders that did come through as novices and how some did not get demoralized along the way and give up.

    I am going to try to get there City this year for a 2 day stay with my wife.I fancy the Leicester or Kent encounter is it best to get the crossing from Southampton - City.???

    Does anyone care what John Cook says ? he should be fined for his ridiculous comments em he probably could not afford to pay.!!!!Look at the difference of Cook and passionate and progressive MR Bishop at the Isle of Wight they are like chalk/ cheese.

    We have a youth meeting coming to Swindon in a week or so also with Kent bringing a side down in another meeting.I have seen a few NL meeting's and Swindon had a few a couple of season's ago ( Danny Ayres great value and entertainment).It showed me it does not matter what level it is at speedway it can still be entertaining the NL has come along way in my opinion a good product in its own right.
  21. Can anyone help please could anyone give me the heat details and scores of these three matches please.I have the speedway stars in the loft but it will take an eternity to find them.

    1983 Halifax v Poole. Belle Vue v Poole Sheffield v Poole BL fixtures.

    He also did not ride Halfax that much over the years, but the Golden Helmet you mentioned i remember going to Poole on the Wednesday and he had bike issues. that night in the two runs with Shawn.That caused him to not turn up for the second leg if i remember rightly Eric Boocock was not being a happy Larry about it.
