  1. With the season end fast approaching, its time to look towards 2019, and hopefully there will be a 2019 for the Scorpions. Personally I think we should try build our team around Josh, Jake and Jason, the 3 that have arguably carried our team this season. 1. Steve Worrall- Think he may be back next season after this season not going to plan. 2. Josh Pickering - Always seems to ride the EWR very well, would love to see him in a Scorpions racejacket on a full-time basis 3. Josh Auty - Is he really going to go anywhere else? Roumered to have his testimonial at the EWR in 2019 4. Jake Allen - Been the best rider in the 2018 Scorpions by far. He also intends to be in a Scorpions jacket next season 5. Jason Garrity - Just have a slight feeling he will be back in Scorpions colours next season 6. Broc Nicol - Likes the EWR track, would be a good addition to the Scorpions. 7. Joe Lawlor - Impressed in a short time with Sheffield this season, why not give the kid a chance Not sure what the averages would come up to, but a team that would be entertaining
  2. Personally I'd say Tero is the best choice of guest. He's been a superstar round the EWR this season and is a former Comet, so has to be booked for both legs, please Rob
  3. Advantage Scunny.. top team performance from the lads... Jake was awesome and fully deserved his paid max... 15 heats still left to go, but I quite fancy the Scorpions chances... theres a new fire in the bellys of the Scorpions and the Comets (hopefully) will find that out in the final
  4. The past 2 heat 15's at Scunny Heat15 Scunthorpe v Somerset (PL Playoff Final 2012) Josh Auty and Nick Morris v Jesper B Monberg and Richard Hall... Great team riding by Morris and Auty to give the Scorpions the league title with Hall on their tails for all 4 laps
  5. Scorpions at Peterborough on 13th Oct
  6. https://www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/sport/other-sport/kyle-howarth-ready-scunthorpe-scorpions-2050997 Looks like Kyle Howarth could be at No.1 for Scunny if Josh isn't fit enough to ride

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Run down on this years team.. Steve Worrall - was brought in as a out-and-out number 1, got injured in the first meeting of the season.. Can see Stevie back next season with a point to prove. Stefan Nielsen - at the start of the season, by far our most consistant rider, good for 12 points a meeting then crashed in a premiership meeting, which unfortunatley cost us our season. Jason Garrity - the thrill merchant but injury prone... top lad, would like to see him back Jake Allen - my rider of the season, great lad, great rider especially around the ewr! Defo one to keep for 2019 Josh Auty - pretty much nailed on for 2019, is he really going anywhere else? Had by far his best season this year Gino Manzares - started the season by doing his job, but then had his confidence blowing crash in the SON, which ultimatley made him the rider that he is now, I cant see him back at the EWR next season Danny Phillips - can''t see young Danny been back next season.. Started of by doing his job, getting the odd 3rd here-and-there, but with all the injuries the pressure mounted on the lad and had gone backwards, shame as I really like the lad and consider him a mate.. Realistically can see the 3 J's and Steve back at the Scorpions, wouldn't mind seeing Stef back if we can get him back to how he was at the start of the season... Can almost see 2 changes in the reserve berth, would like to see Ryan Douglas back if his average would fit and a rider like Jordan Jenkins (although doesn't want to commit to a full season of Championship racing with his exams in April/May, maybe a mid season replacement?) or maybe even bring Josh Bailey back?
  8. 44-46 would be wonderful, sadly cant see it happening
  9. Should be a relatively easy win for the comets, really really hope Im wrong

    2018 Season Highs & Lows

    For us at Scunny, cant really say we have too many highs, making the semis of the Championship Shield and KOC... Injuries for us have cost us this season, and has been the talk in the terraces of what could have happened if they all stayed fit... For the league in general it's pleasing to see teams like Berwick and Workington in the top, teams not normally up there battling for the playoffs. Its also amazing to see some up and coming riders like Drew Kemp coming up and doing so well in the league, looking forward to seeing riders like Anders Rowe, Jordan Jenkins, Tom Brennan etc come into the league in the next few years too

    Yeah he is a Scunny asset, most of us would love to see him back in scunny colours

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Take Jason, TJ and Josh out and im sure you and Sheffield fans will be very happy with that top 4 in a Sheffield racejacket
  15. Advantage Workington going into the 2nd leg, whenever that will be. Have to say I was looking forward to seeing Anders ride, but was shocked to see Danny there when we arrived. Fair play to Danny for turning up. Not the best of meetings for Scunny's very high standard. I believe the weather did alter track conditions which ultimately played into the Comets hands. Would like to say Scunny have the power to go through, but our reserves I have a feeling will let us down, yet again
