    Lewis Bridger Returns

    William Lawson? He looked a real talent while riding for the Newcastle Gems had a few seasons in the old PL and then retired, and came back last year with Edinburgh. Someone might correct me if I'm wrong but think he might've retired when he spent the season at Berwick as #1 and is now a reserve. Although I think his machinery leaves a lot to be desired at times.

    berwick bandits 2021

    Yeah I was reading that I didn't realize he had a bit of an association with Rybnik through junior ranks, yeah can definitely see him being loaned to a lower division side it didn't seem to do Anders Rowe any harm he got better as the season progressed so hopefully same can happen to Leon, along with Tom Brennan, Jack Thomas recently signed to Poland too I think it's great Poland is the place to be and will improve riders no end best of luck to all of them.

    berwick bandits 2021

    For any Berwick fans Leon Flint has signed a long term contract with Rybnik in Poland, great news to continue his development.
  4. Didn't he recently reject the chance to ride abroad because he hadn't rode much or something? I think he should've stayed at home tonight he's been woeful so far. Racing hasn't been great either mind.
  5. What is up with Bickley? "retired" from his first two rides but the bikes still been going by the looks.

    Hello I'm a postie and don't really think the packaging has anything to do with delayed deliveries. At my office there are probably around 85 staff and for the last week we have had 40+ people off with Covid so unfortunately some people will receive mail late and there's not a lot we can do about it we are trying our best but we just don't have the resources, and I'd imagine it's the same up and down the country. but hopefully things should start to improve in the next week or so.

    Polish Extraleague 2020

    Hopefully he can do well, if he gets all his rides riding against better riders should improve him. The only thing I'd say is he will need to improve his starting hopefully woffy has been giving him some tips.

    Newcastle 2020

    During this pretty scary period nothing much is happening on the side of news in speedway, i'm just trying to keep speedway in people's minds if you like. I was thinking would people like to select there dream team 7 from any riders who have ridden for us until the current day? It might help pass a bit of time I'll start I only started going to speedway in 97 when the diamonds re opened, 1) Jesper Olsen (Was very exciting to watch a great servant to the diamonds unfortunately had a few injuries later on in his career. 2) Nicki P (Only with us for one season but wow some of his over taking was brilliant, even in his one season you could tell he'd go on to bigger and better things. 3) Bjarne Pedersen (Again done quite a lot of work from the gate but a super consistent rider rarely seen him break down, could be ruthless when he needed to be. 4 Kenny Bjerre (I went to Berwick away his first meeting for us I think he only scored a point thought to myself what have we signed here! But as soon as the league program started he was fl$ying and some of his passing was brilliant.) 5) Kenni Larsen (Again another brilliant starter, had a magnificent 2010 as did most of our team, scored bucket load of points for us. A shame things outside of speedway took his career off the rails.) 6 Rene Bach (I think probably my favourite diamond... couldn't make a start to save his life but brilliant watching him come from behind, awful injury which i don't really think he ever got over. But still a joy to watch when he's on song.) 7 James Grieves (Only with us for 2 seasons i think but 2005 was fantastic especially at home, scored a lot of maximums. Dipped a little the second year but a really good signing wish he'd stayed for longer.) Well that's my choice I look forward to seeing everyone elses!

    Belle Vue Colts 2020

    I don't think he got shafted by Redcar did he? I thought after one meeting he asked to step down from the team then subsequently changed his mind but by this time it was too late Redcar had already found someone to replace him.

    Notoriously Dirty Riders

    Totally forgot about the Zetterstrom incident! Was an awful move that one.... James Grieves managed to do a Craig Boyce on him though didn't he haha, yeah unfortunately Rene's was horrible too, don't think he ever got over that one massive shame because he looked like he was going to follow Kenni Larsen and move up into the top league etc.

    Newcastle 2020

    Hopefully there's a chance we can see Nicki P riding in the 90th anniversary meeting saying as he's riding for Sheffield. Wouldn't mind seeing Josh Pickering either he's always good entertainment around brough.

    Didn't Pickering put Kenny Bjerre through the fence at Brough one time? Also remember Sean Wilson T-boning Robert Erikson I think when he was our number 1?
