STOP PRESS, though admittedly of limited relevance, 135 house to built next to Craven Park.  The current residents, some rare spieces of newts, will apparenetly be transferred to nearby ponds.  Poor newts....

What a shame the Coventry Bees were not named the Coventry Newts as Brandon estates would have to have found the Newts a suitable new home before their plans for Brandon could be considered for approval.

BTW my golf club had a similar challenge before being allowed to build a new hole. It took two years for the newts to be moved and development could start. (apparently you could not move them during the breeding season) 

Meanwhile, good luck to all of you involved in "Saving Brandon" - Finding Newts may help?

An idea for the mods.

Close this topic in this section and move/or start anew a thread in the general discussions.

Leave the Coventry thread in the NL section for discussion about the club's fortunes on track this year.

Seems sensible. Does that mean it won't happen? :blink:

Because, like it or not, the Bees are not in the Premiership League this season!

The 2018 season is about to start.

The Bees are a National League club in 2018.

They were no Coventry Bees in team competition on track in 2017.

There's 3 reasons for you.

Edited: Just to say, I would welcome Coventry in the top flight, at Brandon, but just trying to suggest we keep discussion all in one place.

Sounds like Horton selling off the family silver.

Why not as there is  zero chance of him promoting at Brandon again and like it or not he is the owner of Coventry Bees.  He'd be a bit stupid to just lose out on the money he has paid for the riders. Chris Harris would probably go for a bag of chips and a beer after his comments. :D  Avtar Sandhu  made sure he got all of his assets.

Who are the Coventry Bees assets? Presume the foreign riders mentioned will be Coventry assets too.

No further Bees  assets likely to ride over here, I think the cupboard is bare in that regard, but there is....

Greg Hancock, Shamek pawlicki ,andreas Jonson.martin smolinski

That’s all I can remember.

could be the elder saucepan brother of the Poole rider.

Let's face facts, most of the assets would be retired by the time we get back to Coventry (if it happens at all).
