    Odsal

    After 20 odd years of no speedway I think the people of Bradford/Halifax and surrounding areas will support it in the short term, 2-3 years, when Workington re opened in 1999 after 18 years, the crowds in 1981 were around 300 hard core fans, opening night 4000 ish fans and the first few years crowds were 2000 plus well above break figures crowds dropped off in the end, but we went out in style with the treble and made H18TORY

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Yes I can get your point, but if the speedway star ( and subscriber's ) are paying for a 1st class postage fee, surly a 1st class delivery is expected, would say 3 days tops to deliver items, not 5 days or more !!

    Godfrey's 16

    Page 12 under headline roynon back, can't be much of a secret then but knowing the said person he will be trying to get a better deal off another club !!

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Speedway star arrived today, 5 days for a 1st class post, by 3rd class royal mail !!. Can the speedway star not claim off the royal mail for poor delivery ?

    Over in Cumbria often a funeral route is published then people line the route to pay respects or people gather near the person's house to pay respects

    Triple ditto from Cumbria, but in slight defence of royal mail in Workington, a mate who works there !! Said a lot of staff off sick with covid/symptoms or isolation and normal winter sickness

    Last ever Hyde Road meeting

    Even though I live in West Cumbria, was at the last Hyde road meeting, 1st and last at kirky lane, and the 1st at nss, but only saw the couple of practice rides, then into city centre to drown our sorrows !!
  15. Announcement today in Wales that the field hospital is to be removed from millennium stadium to allow rugby to be played in February/march, fingers crossed for GP in july

    workington ..

    quote from ty proctor in this week's speedway star, What is your most memorable meeting you have been involved in ? The night we won the 1st trophy of our treble at Workington he must have a soft spot for the comets especially after some of the dummy spitting out antics at times !! But as they say H18tory

    Mr English was very outspoken when Workington were in debt / going out of business, looks like it's now come back to haunt him

    workington ..

    Was an article in speedway star a few weeks ago with the guy who hopes to do something, but we are in strange times at the moment, so would not like to guess the outcome, also Workington is home to several families who like to live in caravans !! And our local council have earmarked Northside area for a special site for the said people !!, Which would be an official one rather than the illegal ones they are using in the said area now and it is full of various bits off rubbish or worse left by the said people, so would not like to venture down to watch speedway

    Don't know about Manchester but been heavy rain past 2 days in Cumbria, would have been no chance of speedway

    Jason Garrity

    Jenga can remember him doing all-sorts of strange behaviours both at Derwent park and other places, think at last everything has caught up with him and got what he deserves
  21. Neila

    Jason Garrity

    He did not turn up to meetings that "random drug testing" was taking place !! For some reason
  22. Neila

    Jason Garrity

    Was he really on drugs ?? Saw several times some very strange behaviour in the pits, once a team manager told him to get out of sight part way through a meeting due to his behaviour !! Then another time after falling off was screaming in pain, until he went in the medical room came out smoking something and seamed right as rain !! I'm saying nowt about the jail term but must deserve it
  23. Think Kyle bickley has spat his dummy out and gone home, sorry but don't think he has got it to go any further, should be doing a lot better than this with all the years he's been riding !!

    SON 2020

    Not really Workington comets got several mentions
  25. Only problem with Plusnet is they use older bt hubs not as fast or reliable, yes cheaper but get what you pay for, if a fair distance from exchange or one of the local green boxes, broadband strength is lost
