    The previous promotion may have entertained us all for years... But let's not forget that their backhanded 'dodgy' way of running the club's finances for all them years is one of the main reasons that today is the final meeting ever for Newcastle Diamonds... Among other things yes I know

    Is this the same promoter who was involved with is before? Or is there another former peterborough promoter who has redcar ties?

    But that wont happen if he runs 2022??? Or has he just reached the end of his tether...? A lot seems to have been posted today, will make some interesting reading tonight...

    I would be willing to pay up to £1000 as one upfront cost (not much I know, but as much as I could afford) and maybe £100 (maybe even more if I can persuade family members and friends to support too) a month from there on. If something like what THJ has suggested can be put in place... i dont have a business to promote or anything really, just want to see my club survive. I have some speedway spares and memorabilia I would happily donate to some kind of fund raising event to help save the club on the premise that we definitely operate in 2022... maybe a pre season event after we name our team? Hopefully with view of the long term moving to our own track for 2023? The support is there from a handful of fans, and if we can muster up enough budget to put a decent team together, the paying numbers will come from there... I just hope we can find a figurehead to put all of this together, as I have zero knowledge (or time) in business and I am too young to have any experience in the field...

    Bet there's no mention of the club's impending doom on look north But every single football team in the north east will get mentioned though!! Too little too late either way... Never got a mention before... Bet most people in the area havent even heard of speedway before...

    belle vue v kings lynn 13/9/21

    This kinda of rules that the powers have dreamt up is the kind of thing that's been slowly killing off my club for the past decade or so (among other things, I know)... people have just lost interest with the ridiculousness by now... cheers bspa

  13. Massive shame... Really is, thank you for all the support you've given to the club and riders over the years... I just know that it's been A LOT and it shouldn't go unnoticed... Without people like you, clubs like this couldn't function
  14. There just doesn't seem to be the interest now that there was back in the early 2010s... I know our team has been weak this year, I get that... But is there really THAT many glory supporters in speedway that the crowd has shrunk so much so quick? I'm gutted, Newcastle speedway seems to be slowly fizzling out with the most underwhelming end to its history ever... At least Workington went out with style... Just hope the saviour comes from somewhere, but I cannot see it...
