    Leicester Lion Cubs 2021

    Both Ben Trigger and James Chattin were regulars at Leicester open practice sessions in 2020 which gave the promotion to look at both riders. Chattin did seem to struggle with the Leicester track at times both in his guest appearances and when I have seen him at practice with a few big crashes. But he is a lovely guy so I am sure that he will get another team place

    Plymouth Gladiators 2021

    A nice Zach Wajtknecht sized gap on 5.27, Although I did hear that he had some concerns about clashes with Longtrack GPs and also getting back to Plymouth from some of the German Monday meetings so the Gladiators may have gone down a different route.

    with or without

    There would be no issues streaming meetings from Belle Vue,Wolverhampton,Sheffield and Kings Lynn. Peterborough and Ipswich are a bit more challenging but can be done for a little more cost. The TV meetings will start around the same time as well

    Plymouth Gladiators 2021

    Ruml and Zach Wajtknecht would be my guess for the signings tomorrow. Plymouth are building a really good side so far

    Plymouth Gladiators 2021

    Another rider returning to the sport is my guess, but this time he is a lot younger than Crumpy & Bjarne, with more confidence now in his riding I am sure that he will be a success at Plymouth.

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    As Leicester have announced today there has been a significant drop in the points limit which has meant that Leicester now cannot include Danyon Hume, So Kent and others will be in the same situation and having to drop a rider at the top end of the team and replace them with a 3-4 point rider the idea is so that NL can develop and have team places for youngsters & new starters to the sport.

    Sheffield 2020

    Where has the Woofy rumours come from ? As far as I know Tai is living in rental accommodation in the UK before moving his family out to Poland again for the season so why would he suddenly want to do the UK unless the Polish season does not go ahead

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    The difference is some of the riders that are based here in the UK Masters,Douglas,Morris,Nicol etc have already told their Polish clubs that once the British season starts they will only be able to ride in Poland if there are no travel restrictions in this place between the UK & Poland. Which makes total sense if you can ride 2 or 3 times a week in the UK guaranteed or ride once a week in Poland if they pick you look at Troy Batchelor situation he was out in Poland practicing regularly but they wouldn’t pick him for matches

    Leicester Lions 2020

    BarrowBoy2- The slight concern over Josh Bates is him being able to stay on the bike and fit. With the team setup if he was out injured it would only leave the twins and Ty able to take a ride. As is normal in the winter plans change a few times as riders become available that were not originally able to be considered

    Poole Pirates 2020

    The last time I spoke to Danyon he had a good steady full time job & young family . As much as he loves racing Speedway to race in Championship and National League he would need to give his job up so he would need to be able to guarantee a decent earning from Championship racing

    Sheffield 2020

    It is for that reason that they will only start the season in Premiership if their is riders of the same standard. In 2019 both of the Thompson twins were beating home & away the likes of Rowe ,Palin,Flint,Gilkes,Bickley,Clegg,Edwards etc it may be a little too soon for the riders above and the standard maybe a bit more Kemp,Brennan, Perks sort of level

    Sheffield 2020

    If the twins do step up to Premiership it will only be if riders of similar Standard such as Palin,Gilkes,Flint,Edwards etc do as well. Logistics can be sorted out as PL shouldn’t clash with NL apart from possibly a Kent fixture and the Thompson family have a good support network around them with each one having their own dedicated mechanics who are all very experienced right up to GP standard so being at different tracks I do not see being an issue for them especially if Sheffield and Peterborough as both home tracks are less than 1hr 30mins away from home

    Sheffield 2020

    If reports are correct that Palin,Gilkes and Flint are riding in Premiership in 2021as rising stars then I would expect one of the Thompson twins to be at Sheffield with the other in East Anglia

    Poole Pirates 2020

    North or to the Midlands?

    Leicester Lions 2020

    The options to replace Perks were originally Josh Bates,Anders Rowe and Connor Mountain but then a change was agreed at AGM so some options were no longer available
