    Eastbourne 2020

    Completely agree, and the same could be said of all 3 leagues. The issue stems from those who wish to push the levels higher and higher within the lower leagues as they can afford to, but do not want/cannot sustain a higher level. I'm certainly not saying any Club should be forced up anywhere along the line, but they should be restricted in how strong they can go and have some distance put between each league so that each one can serve their purpose.

    I'd say that Eastbourne & Kent should be comfortable in a sustainable 2nd tier with the crowds that they get. It is made unsustainable by the more affluent or bigger backed 2nd tier Clubs signing higher end riders that really shouldn't be at that level. So the solution becomes for Eastbourne and Kent to drop back down and become the more affluent at a lower level, with the knock on effect being felt by those lower down as the 3rd tier gets stronger and more competetive. Speedway is a sport, and so should be competetive, but the problem is not just one of the NL being made too weak, there is a fundamental issue with the structure right the way through the leagues, and how that structure is voted/brought in

    Exactly this......and at present, moving up to the Premiership means same product as the Championship just paying higher overheads. So until the structure can be amended to make the Premiership, or whatever they want to call it, the tier Clubs want to race at, there's absolutely no point being there. All Clubs may as well accept that they should all just run at the 'Old NDL' level...but then you run out of riders again and around it goes. By the lower leagues wanting to remain stronger to keep their product attractive, it makes a mockery of the tiered structure currently in place, with the Premiership being nothing of the sort. No simple answers, but there's no structure and extremely blurred lines within the 3 tiers at present. I do hope there's some positive news to come from Eastbourne, always enjoyed my trips down there over the years.

    National League 2021 - has it been abandoned?

    Doing what it was set up to do then, no? A development league to develop and bring through new blood

    Premiership Junior League

    What threat does having a solid sustainable product at semi affordable prices, using UK only riders, pose to the other leagues? It's the breeding ground for up and coming talent, and I doubt Promoters in other leagues are that short sighted (whilst you may believe so) to purposefully dismantle this out of jealousy/spite? Especially when it offers a level to drop to for struggling Clubs, and a level to start at for emerging Clubs. Who do you class as the top money promotions making the decisions?

    Is there a reason why people think those making the decisions would be looking to deliberately put a spanner in the works of development leagues? Or just cynicism for the sake of it? Genuinely curious

    So, strong reserves all year round is the key, but we won the league with reserves that couldn't hack it? Perfect sense

    Another possible for what? I'm sure I read elsewhere you'd said he was unconvincing as a Championship reserve? Another one with plenty of potential, but he'd be on a 4 point average in the Premiership so would start in our main body. I guess we'll wait and see

    Swindon Robins 2020

    I tend to agree, but hope that it pans out ok for Anders, he's got the ability but possibly a year too soon. Perhaps a slightly increased points limit should have been considered

    Someone that would know 100%. He won't be starting the season in England

    Musielak isn't likely to improve his average as he won't be racing in the UK this season
