    Hmm. Foz or Wayne Bavin for presenter? It's like being asked if you would like to be poked in the left eye or the right... I'd like to see James Hazell from Radio Suffolk give it a go. Witty, funny and not at all dreary.

    Notoriously Dirty Riders

    I'd like to bet a few of those around you that evening have recently spent £16 and queued patiently to have JL sign their copy of his autobiography!

    Notoriously Dirty Riders

    Jens Rasmussen was a dirty bugger. The way he took Richard Knight out in the 1985 KOC final at Foxhall was shocking. Knight had to be physically held back in the pits to stop him going after Rasmussen! Also, I'd feel feel sorry for any rider who had Preben Eriksen and Tim Hunt against them in the same race!

    Leigh Lanham ?

    I'd like to see him as Witches team manager. At least he's thrown his leg over a bike in anger... (Yes, I know Brian Messenger hasn't, but he's the exception)

    I always thought they didn't play AWITBF anymore because it was the late John Earrey's "signature" tune. Saying that, it would be nice to hear it again once more for old times sake! Or these... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXH3QJrx98U https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKm2_67xtVs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXKgpYyT8t4

    "speedway Friends"

    I joined that page a while ago. It is a good page especially for the old photos and the "Where Are They Now" piece. What annoys me is the amount of times people post things as "If you need to win the league/cup and you need a 5-1, who would you put in?" I reckon that question is asked weekly.

    Worst Presenters

    I reckon we've been spoilt at Foxhall. Firstly John Earrey then Kevin Long. At least they don't have that Foz fellow as much as they did. Stick to the drivetime show!

    Rye House V Ipswich Sat 31st May

    I'm going to this one. My first visit to Rye House since the Witches rode in the BSPA Cup (Remember that?) in 1991. What's the best way to get there? A12/M25/A10 or A12/A120 and across country? Or shall I have my usual Saturday night and stay at hoom and watch Britain's Got Talent & Casualty?? (I'll record the GP so I can fast forward the boring bits....)
  9. If it's the company I'm thinking of, they have in the past sponsored riders and both team and individual meetings from the early 1980's. Saying that, I haven't seen them sponsor a meeting or rider for a few years now.

    The Surprise Rider

    After what I've seen on Good Friday it must be Lewis Blackbird.

    Leigh Lanham for manager anyone? There must have been a reason Morten Risager was give a team place ahead of him....

    Witches V Devils ( Pl ) 22-8-13

    I'm going up regardless. If it's rained off, there's always plan B. We'll got to the Gaumont to see Return Of The Jedi. Oh hang on, it's not 1983. We'll got to Cineworld instead!

    Ipswich V Redcar 10/8

    I was looking forward to a close meeting last night. A win is a win they say but apart from Wilko, Redcar were pretty awful. Cameron Heeps gets better everytime I see him ride (which isn't as often as I'd like!) A good all round performance by the Witches.
