  1. The Panthers had a torrid time at Berwick last night scoring just 35 points with Scott Nicholls getting 17 of them, plus a bonus point. Diamonds will be favourites for this, apparently the heavy rain forecast for today looks to have missed us.
  2. Newcastle face tough opposition with Workington the visitors. The Comets come to Brough with a victory under their belts against Berwick at Shieldfield last night. Newcastle need the "good" Matel Kus to turn up tonight. Stuart Robson takes over the no. 1 racejacket.
  3. After a close defeat at Armadale on Friday, Newcastle will be strong favourites to gain full points against the Monarchs. Will be interesting to see how Matej Kus fares on his home debut, while it is a welcome return for Robbo.

    Berwick vs Newcastle 31/03/18 1st Leg TTT

    Fantastic win for the Diamonds tonight. Even though Lindgren and Aarnio had their problems, Diamonds were up by 20 points after heat 10. Berwick fought back in the last five heats, not enough though and an eight point win for the visitors. A real team performance and let's hope it continues tomorrow.

    RIP Ivan Mauger OBE

    Sad to hear of this awful news, although it has been expected, it's still a shock.I was at Brough Park to see his first home ride for Newcastle on 15 April 1963. This ended in an engine failure, an inauspicious start. A second and two wins, all on borrowed bikes completed his first match. He did improve!!!! RIP the ultimate professional.

    I can't see Max Clegg signed up elsewhere, rides Brough well and capable of increasing his 4+ average.

  8. Could the new owners be more receptive than Wm Hill?
  9. By bottling it, I repeat, did Cookie only have one bike with him, could he not ride the bike Williamson was warming up? If one of my riders had done the same, then I would say exactly the same. Cookie and Stevie rode that awful Poole track brilliantly last night, and hope they do the same at King's Lynn. The Newcastle track has been fast and smooth for a number of years now, and certainly doesn't deserve the childish "Rough Park" tag You are going to have to get a rhyming dictionary out. For Brough Park read Newcastle Stadium. My apologies to Mr Campton, I'm 97 now and am starting to make mistakes. I'll get my secretary to proof read my ramblings in future.
  10. I started this thread asking for improvement from Ashley, Lewis and Ludvig. I certainly got my wish with Lindgren especially impressive. Changing engines worked a treat. I thought Workington were poor,especially after their good performance earlier in the day. Enough has been said about Cook, but I can't see how the British Champion had only one bike to ride, could not borrow one (we were told Williamson was warming a bike for him), not a good example from the captain in a last heat decider. Mason Campbell had one excellent ride, but none of the others registered. Two heat winners (Cook), their sum total. On another note, could someone confirm the result of heat 13. I have Ludvig second and Worrall third, but Barry last night had the reverse, as does the website.
  11. The second of two meetings today, with the aggregate winner moving onto the next round It's vital Diamonds pick up as many points from Derwent Park as possible to give themselves a chance for progress Newcastle will have Stevie Worrall back, and hopefully able to cope with the tight bends. I repeat what I said last week, but didn't get that is a big improvement from Ludvig, Ashley and Lewis. Track specialist Craig Cook should be well in double figures, his races with Robert could be classics. A busy day for riders and supporters, let's hope everyone comes through unscathed.
  12. Day of the meeting and no thread. Newcastle look to be on the defensive as Stevie Worrall not riding following his crash at Redcar. Rider replacement will be used, anyone can have a ride. Let's hope Lewis Rose and Ashley Morris raise their game tonight and that that the right Ludvig turns up. Welcome to Dan Greenwood, but it looks like a hard home debut for him. Glasgow must scent taking the points tonight.
  13. Might as well start this one. Unless new averages have kicked in. Newcastle 1. Robert Lambert 2. Ashley Morris 3. Lewis Rose 4. Ludvig Lindgren 5 Stevie Worrall 6. Ben Hopwood 7. Connor Coles Scunthorpe 1. Michael Palm Toft 2. Carl Wilkinson 3. Lewis Kerr 4. Ryan Douglas 5. Josh Auty 6. Tero Aarnio 7. Josh Bailey. Welcome to three former Diamonds, Wilkinson, Kerr and Aarnio. Can only see a heavy defeat for Scunthorpe, should be interesting at reserve level.
  14. Just goes to show what happens with a high scoring reserve. Thanks James.
