    Eastbourne 2018

    Hope so.

    "rumoured" being the operative term. Any factual evidence ?
  3. I think factually Eastbourne are only responsible for one of the "three league fixtures outstanding after the Play Off final" and that's the one at home against Mildenhall. The other two are away at Stoke and Buxton.
  4. I'm hoping Eastbourne move up a league.
  5. Still think the one last week was entering the 1st bend of the 3rd lap and was therefore correct. Dugard fell on the 3rd bend of the 2nd lap (as reported on updates and the Eagles website) and therefore under the rules the race can't be awarded. Agree, that seems a bit daft and farcical but how many fans were thinking, "don't do anything daft", "hope there's not an engine failure" as Baseby and Spiller rode round. If it had been awarded, Mildenhall would have been within their rights to protest. On reflection, all Dugard needed to do was stay on and guarantee a point - he didn't.
  6. Texter Steven always gives a good and usually accurate account of the racing and goings on at Arlington. The other messages regarding rider availability are worth a read.
  7. Some interesting comments on Speedway updates.
  8. Sad state of affairs if, even at this level (and that’s not a snub or put down in anyway), riders don’t want the booking for a play off final.

    Coventry v Eastbourne Play Offs.

    I tend to agree with Mike. Mountain made a fast move up the inside, a move at that point of the track we seldom see in the NL, which I believe took Baseby by surprise, he still had a lot of room around the outside of 1&2 and has chosen to go out there many times. I thought they had completed 2 laps and were entering the 3rd? In which case the award was in accordance with rule 15.5.2.

    Despite the score line there was some good speedway last night. I thought Connor Mountain deserved more, he certainly is a racer, shame his team mates weren't on the pace. Fabulous performance from Charlie Brooks and nice to see Baseby team riding him for the wins. Usual sublime riding from Brennan and Wood.

    I wouldn't know, it's just a number in the accounts prepared and signed by the Director and Secretary, Mr C H Van Straaten. I suspect only he knows.

    Poole 2019

    Both figures correct, however there are liabilities to take account of as well. The net worth of the company is shown as £77k, down from £98k in 2016. But these are unaudited accounts, as are most Speedway clubs, and there is no uniform measure or requirement of assets, nor is there any accurate measure of profitability. Just because the net worth is down by £21k in a year it doesn't necessarily mean they made a loss, it could be that the owners decided to take out some of the retained profits from earlier years.
  14. Had faith that Eastie would win but a bit deflated in the way it panned out. Bailey was disappointing considering he has had plenty of laps here. Marsden rode better than his points tally suggests. i know you can only beat what's in front of you but this victory feels a bit hollow in the end.

    And for what it's worth (no pun intended) the Poole Accounts are very abbreviated (Micro Company Accounts) showing Capital & Reserves of : Feb 2018 £76,881 Feb 2017 £97,815 Feb 2016 £101,625 Feb 2015 £78,160 Feb 2014 £78,701 The last time they showed any detail around assets there was a value of £24,667 for Intangible Assets in 2016.
