    TV new deal?

    I am sure a lot of Championship clubs will be keen to see the smallprint on: 'Full digital rights across all platforms' Will they be handcuffed as has happened with previous deals.

    Championship Grand Final 2019

    Fun night with the Tiggerati on the back straight. Need everything to go our way on Tuesday, hopefully lady luck will even up Cookie's blow up. Only 'dubious' decision mentioned was that the tapes went up unevenly for the exclusion of Claus but I had no view of that. Heat 15 was just the boost we needed before heading up the road. Nice setup at Leicester and everyone we met was friendly and welcoming apart from Lawlor and Perks.

    Has been lashing it down in Glasgow for a couple of hours. Call off was correct.

    Championship Grand Final 2019

    With a huge crowd expected tonight and any restaging likely to be midweek this is a sore one financially for the club.

    Well done the S.C.B.

    This happened at Glasgow. I wasn't in the box as I was recording the Tigers Post meeting video in the depths of the stand so I missed all the excitement. On returning to the box I was told that there had been a crash and that someone had stormed the refs box after marching a long way to get there. He complained that his rider (possibly his son, can't remember) was being called a cheat by being excluded and that the ref must look at the video and reverse the decision. By all accounts his manner was fairly aggressive and he had to be removed from the box. Everyone was fairly bemused by his actions. Sorry can't remember the meeting or the ref for that matter but it went into the weird category. Anyway it was obviously reported.

    Certainly worth the club taking a look a Sam and R/R wasn't worth persevering with. A Danish Under 21 champion and scoring decent points in a tough domestic league. From You Tube clips he looks a racer so even more excitement for the Ashfield faithful, in what has been a fantastic season so far.

    Eastbourne v Glasgow Semi Final

    Having spoken to someone who was very close to the action, I’m told that Craig swerved to go around the marshal, but the marshal moved in front of him to stop him and it was at this point they came together. Craig therefore did not intentionally steer into him and in fact attempted to take avoiding action.

    I think you’ll find what Peter said was that emotions were clearly running high at the start of the meeting and that on behalf of his club, he apologised for whatever part Glasgow played in the incident. He didn’t apportion blame and it’s wrong to suggest he did. It's Eastbourne, you are famous for noising up the opposition. Job done. Congratulations on making the Final.

    Connor Bailey has committed to GB as well.

    Eastbourne v Glasgow Semi Final

    With our full team I would have fancied the stripes but Starkie a huge miss for this one. 50-40
  11. That was a cracker of a meeting, takes two to tango and Redcar were worthy of their point. The speedway at Glasgow this year is absolutely superb, thoroughly enjoying it. Completely agree that Kyle has the outside line in his locker, if he chooses to use it and Connor getting visibly quicker every week. I thought the second pits camera worked well last night once the signal issues settled down. The 2nd meeting in a row with a very healthy attendance (no freebies), positive signs for the club.

    High speed, lots of banking and now that last year's track alterations have settled down the racing has improved massively, with distinct inside and outside lines. We haven't had a dud meeting this season despite the relatively comfortable wins.

    Will be surprised if the Tornado is more than a mild breeze at first. Massive step up for the lad and short term CC was probably the best option. I hope to be proved very wrong. However, I think this is a huge signing for the club with his junior pedigree and family support this hungry Australian will come good. Really looking forward to watching him develop. On a 2.00 point average it looks to be a brilliant piece of business and I am sure an additional spot in the NL will be forthcoming.
  15. Both line ups were posted on the Tigers Facebook page yesterday.
