  1. Folks, I apologise if a thread already exists..... Lee Kilby has said he will shave off his hair to raise funds for The Ben Fund with an initial target of £500. This was quickly exceeded and raised to £1000 which has also been surpassed. Can we keep up the good work since The Ben Fund still has people depending on it and the dreaded virus has stopped other normal methods of fundraising. Well done to Lee. Sorry I don’t know how to do links but the details are as follows https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/leekilbyheadshave?utm_term=4MKAr3Xb5
  2. Well, I really am a technophobe, it’s official. I tried to add a picture about the great shave-off ..... failed. So just to let you know that Mitchell Davey was also involved in shaving his barnet - well done to Mitchell too

    Blair Scott RIP

    I have so many happy memories of Blair, especially on Southern tours in the good old days when tours lasted all week and Blair and Ally provided much of the humour. I have always had a soft spot for our likeable lad and it is with great sadness that I now say, RIP Bongo Sincere condolences to Margaret and Ally
  4. Good luck to Cookie and our neighbours from the West. Fly the flag for Scotland
  5. I’d certainly like to think so after the superb 5 years Cookie gave us There are a small few who haven’t gone to Glasgow since “that letter” and a small few who don’t like that Craig “defected to the enemy” but, I for one, will never forget Craig’s contribution to Monarchs and the joy it was to watch him then and now. The lad has to earn a living and always wears his team colours with pride
  6. I dragged myself along, choked with the cold, to support my pal Cookie and I’m glad I did. As testimonials go, this rates well. Great to see Craig giving meaningful track time to the youngsters who were very entertaining. The main event had lots of old and existing Edinburgh riders battling it out in a decent line-up. Such a shame the meeting was sandwiched between Edinburgh home and Newcastle away or I’m sure there would’ve been more Monarchs fans there. Everything appeared to go as planned and it looked like Craig enjoyed his well deserved day
  7. Me too, wishing you the best of luck

    Gutted to lose big Victor - 100% trier and a really nice lad. Good luck to him and I hope the crazy points limit allows us to have him back some time Really good to have Joel back tho’

    2nd leg play off final

    Doh, I’ve put my congrats on the wrong thread (tomorrows double) Absolutely stoked for Laura and all at Workington Speedway. Following a year of rain offs and injuries makes becoming League Champions even more awesome. Let the celebrations begin...... and Good Luck for the treble tomorrow
  13. That’s the way to do it!!! Hearty congratulations...... let the League Champions celebrations begin and Good Luck tomorrow for the treble
  14. Good luck to Laura and her Workington team & supporters tonight

    A’ra’best TAI - go get ‘em lad
  17. Good meeting with the tension kept turned up all night. Great effort from both teams on a flippin cold night Good luck to all in the play-offs..... I’ll be sitting in my cosy house with my feet up watching the updates May the best team win
  18. Funny old game Speedway..... my hubby looked at Friday’s prog on Sat am and declared us the winners BUT I reminded him this was Speedway where anything can and does happen and that Worky could do to us what we did to them...... hmmm All I can say now is well done the Comets and good luck as you progress
  19. Congratulations to Berwick, their riders attacked the track from ht 1 and got the result they deserved. Theo was the trump card Plaudits to the track staff (I would never have believed it would go ahead having been there from 5pm) and to Willie Dishington for rattling the meeting through in an amazing time I’m not having a go at our riders as, although they took too long to get going, they never gave up. Early bath for us but hey ho, that’s Speedway. KO cup time ........
  20. Jings, ever wish you’d never made a comment? There is no team management as it is an individual event. I get the second bit but I like Ricky and didn’t want to say that so I simply said Erik was unlucky with the last gate pick
  21. Picky, hardly relevant post....... so my turn...... 3rd loser actually as Cookie won it
  22. Congrats to Glasgow, by far the best team on the night, well deserved win. Cookie was worth the trip thro and the admission money - I’ve missed watching him riding flat out like that. Coming back to the Championship League has brought the smile back. I said Bomber would benefit from having Craig around so I’ll pat myself on the back now Have to say I was unimpressed and embarrassed by the boos from a small section of “Monarchs fans” towards Craig. Bl@@dy short memories some people have. 5 years of sheer joy and that’s what he gets for trying to earn a living......... Impressive nights for Broc Nicol (thanks lad) and Jordan Stewart
  23. Better late than never..... WELL DONE COOKIE and a great effort from Erik, unlucky last pick of gate lad
  24. Pre Friday, I would’ve agreed with you but losing Joel and Victor not fully fit (thumb & knee damage) could be a game changer Happy Birthday Paulco...... but we will be out to spoil your party
  25. What’s the weather doing at Worky.... raining all the way so far
