    Shame the team sponsor, Thomas Armstrong (Holdings), couldn't help somehow. Their accounts show that at September 2017 they had a net worth of £123m including £30m in the bank. Perhaps they have had a tough time in the last 12 months.

    You can see the filed accounts for nothing at Companies House Beta, they are unaudited, abbreviated accounts. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08976809/filing-history It's a funny old world, -the Premiership Champions are going into 2019 sponsored by a company with a net worth of minus £8k (last filed accounts March 2018). Of course this company could have had a stupendously successful 9 months and are now in a much healthier financial position. -on the other hand the Championship winners, Workington, aren't racing in 2019, although their team sponsor, Thomas Armstrong (Holdings) have a net worth of £123m (yes, that's £123 million).

    Looks like they have plans for motorsport to grow at the stadium. I hope they can tempt Kevin Coombes back as announcer / presenter.

    The published accounts of the owners would indicate that in the 3 years 2015 - 2016 losses were £37k, £37k and £32k, and if 2018 was a 3 figure sum then that’s a lot of money to wave goodbye to. I’ve no idea of sponsorship sums, but looking at their accounts, the main team sponsor has considerable resources. I’m not saying they should cover the losses but it’s a shame that a business plan couldn’t be put together to provide financial support.

    Thanks No1, that's good to hear. I'm not signed up to Facebook or Twitter (and have no intention of doing so), it's a shame that those two external sites seem to be the main source of communication rather than the clubs own website. Hopefully that will change when the site gets a much needed overhaul.

    Shouldn't be too hard to set up a new company either ? Here we are on 11th January 2019 and the new limited company announced by the BSPA on the 14th November 2018, The British Speedway Promoters Association Limited, to take effect from 1st December 2018, doesn't show as registered at Companies House. I trust that has nothing to do with the delay, e.g. we'd like to take the cheque / bond/ guarantee but we don't have a legal entity to accept it yet. All admin in speedway is a bit suspicious, we're still waiting for the results of the 'full investigation' by the SCB of the cancellation of Eastbourne v Mildenhall fixture on 26 October last year. p.s. I had to search for the R&R reference......it's in the Birmingham thread.

    BSPA Ltd.

    Haven't seen this company registered with Companies House yet. Was supposedly being incorporated from 1st December wasn't it ?

    So both Toby Elliott and Vera Tomlinson either supported or approved whatever application was being made, with "conditions". They are hoping the leopard will change its spots. Perhaps it would be more effective to do a "Trump"..........refuse the application totally until the previous commitments have been met.

    Hope it’s not lost or delayed, things seem to move slowly in the admin world of speedway. We’re still waiting for the results of the SCB enquiry into the non staging of the season finale Eastbourne v Mildenhall fixture. And British Speedway Promoters Association Limited has yet to appear on the register of companies at Companies House.

    All good stuff but there is a note at the bottom of the BSPA press release as follows : PLEASE NOTE: The move to join the 2019 Championship is subject to official entry criteria being completed and logged with the BSPA Head Office. Let’s hope the paperwork is in hand and / or in the post !

    Worth enquiring. He’s not riding on Saturday nights anywhere else is he ? And would be a huge boost to British Speedway.
  12. Oh, OK, apologies, I was thinking that you took the Premiership average and applied the relevant factor, I didn’t look to see if there was an attained Championship average, my mistake. So the 1.5 Premiership to Championship calculation would only apply to those riding in a Premiership team and then riding in the Championship for the first time?
  13. Not had much experience with double up / down and average calculations, so could someone run through Craig Cooks average for me please. He is shown as 7.73 on the final green sheet averages for Belle Vue, how does this get to the 10.45 shown in this thread against Glasgow?

    As much as I enjoyed the NL, I am looking forward to professional speedway back at Arlington. If Kevin Coombes can return as well that would be perfect ! (No offence to Steve Crow, he has done a decent job in getting acquainted with speedway but Kevin has the extra professionalism and knowledge of the sport that is currently missing).

    Sorry to be either a pain or pedantic, but perhaps we could just use the one thread in the Championship section for Eastbourne 2019 from now on ?
