    Season Ticket Holders

    Thank you Moranboys. As speedway supporters we already stay away from crowds don't we! i hope no clubs are forced to close down by the situation

    Season Ticket Holders

    What a stupid post! My season ticket was bought in good faith during December 2019 and I would like it back sometime

    Season Ticket Holders

    Yes speedway is trivial compared to the fight against Coronavirus. But if you are living on statutory sick pay £94 per week you will need the money back.
  4. Have any promoters said what they intend to do about season tickets??
  5. Hi All, Can't believe it is 7 yrs since I reminded about the websites. They are still there and going from strength to strength. happy new year everyone

    Newcastle 2018

    So our first home meeting will now be the British Under-21 Semi-Final on the 8th April 2018. Will our season tickets cover this event or are we to shell out extra for it

    Newcastle 2018

    I think our 6 named riders will all pop up and score points and the team will surprise a few people who are writing us off, but when results are in may get a surprise. We need a quality rider to lead us.. god knows who he will be

    Newcastle 2018

    I have received a few items for my Defunct Website which thankfully I am not having to add Newcastle to. The items relate to a long defunct southern track, namely Ringwood Turfs. There is a Ringwood team photo with a rider called Tommy Worrall. Does anyone know if he was a relation of Stevie and Richie?

    Newcastle 2018

    There are a few of our riders from 2017 who may be in the equation for 2018 Stuart Robson Ashley Morris Alfie Bowtell Ben Hopwood Danny Phillips. If Robbo, Ash and Alfie are keen to ride for us, I would get them to sign. To Ben and Danny I would thank them but bring in higher averaged riders hopefully the maths would dictate Ash starting as a reserve which would strengthen the team
  11. Yes leander The Defunct thread is now well and truly Defunct. Looking forward now to season 2019 which will be Brough Park's 90th anniversary. Not sure, but we could be the only club still operating at the same venue, that started in 1929
  12. Just what the doctor ordered, George tells us we are running in 2018 and hopefully for years after 2018. So Newcastle does not go into the Defunct Speedway Website. I will send off my cheque for a season ticket this week
  13. I have no problem with George English, he has kept us going through thick and thin and mostly thin! For that, a big thank you, George BUT! the last few days have been terrible and no-one, George or any other in his absence has had the decency to inform the fans what is going on. NEWCASTLE SPEEDWAY? please tell us fans if we are operating next year! If George you have been on a family cruise then congratulations, hope it was fun, but what about the rest of us? we are family too and need to make plans for 2018 involving our holidays around the fixture list . So come on tell us as follows: Are We Running or Are We Not Surely the time has come to tell the most important people involved with Newcastle Diamonds (The Fans) the truth about our future Visiting the official website is depressing as it is woefully out of date
  14. Hah No! I want George to continue as our boss of the continuing but financially ailing Newcastle Speedway and not be the boss of the given up Defunct Diamonds, but if there are no funds for the 2018 campaign then we should close down with dignity and grace and be remembered as a great old venue. If closing happens, be assured that Brough Park will not be allowed to stage speedway again and where does that leave us? There are no other venues that speedway would be able to start up in. I know I am the only person on this forum expecting Newcastle to close down and I really hope I am wrong so come on Newcastle Speedway put something on your website to explain the current situation are we running or are we not?
