    There’s more chance of my hair growing back than that happening again.

    Then you surely mean ‘ former Peterborough promoter ‘ who watches at Redcar as he’s never had any formal connection to the Redcar club and neither has previous Newcastle promoter Phillips. I doubt ‘ The Gedfather ‘ of Peterborough has the funds to get involved again without a major backer like he had down south and from what I’ve heard of the current Brough Park landlords he wouldn’t want to get involved with such restrictions in place, and that’s supposing the landlords actually want speedway back.

    Newcastle v Birmingham (Champ) 1830 19/09/21

    So 4 guests and R/R being used and we wonder why crowds have plummeted.

    Redcar Vs Leicester 10/09

    The only team Bears have scored heavily against at home has been Plymouth , every team likes riding at Redcar and most have gained a point or come lose to wining only for the Bears to pull it out of the bag in the last race. I expect the same in this match.
  6. None in the pipeline due to the abridged season.

    Birmingham & Newcastle deadline

    An announcer on £100 a meeting ? I think that is a major exaggeration to justify a decision . Roy does a top job, he didn’t slag Newcastle off but Granty overreacted on the say so of tittle tattle, not the first time, but as stated , it’s his club and he runs it how he wants . It’s very sad that the Diamonds look to be no more but some of the stuff put about on here in the recent past hasn’t done the club any favours. I’ll be there on Sunday to pay my respects to a historic club but the last few years , added to this years disaster, has brought about the end of speedway on Tyneside as the fans have drifted away and it’s no longer a sustainable business. That could be repeatable at a few clubs very soon, sadly.
  8. It could of at the time he probably asked, which would have been before the deadline.
  9. Let me guess….initials BB ?….team to ride for north of the border and not the Monarchs ?

    But qualified as he wasn’t at the original cut off date and was injured so missed the first attempt at running the meeting.

    Well you can guarantee Scunthorpe will win track of the year again , it’s in the rule book now.

    Redcar Vs Leicester 10/09

    There have been showers , some heavy, since 2 pm, when I arrived in the town centre, about a mile from the track and looking like more to come .

    Brummies v Bears take 3 08/08

    Yes and have been to Redcar too. I also noted that on each occasion Redcars track was deep and well watered, never seen dust there so I believe you are quite wrong.
