Kb/do Kevin Doolan Testimonial 17-06-2017

Recommended Posts

According to Mr Clarke, the weather will play ball and it's going to be shorts weather? Shorts? In Berwick? I mean, I've never really got hypothermia before, I suppose there's a first time for everything! :rofl:

 

On a less jokey note, I honestly hope the meeting goes well. Doolan definitely deserves this meeting, and i really hope Holder gets confirmed. Only had the experience of seeing him a couple times, hope I can see him a couple more. :)

We wear shorts in November up here, we`re funny that way. But yes Saturday`s forecast looks very promising, I hope the good weather encourages a few fans from Kevin`s former clubs up to support him.

I couldn't even handle shorts in a Berwick summer, so hats off to you guys.

Oh dear, phone still difficult to manage - but the post l was going to add above is that there'll beno need for covers.

 

The sun's gonna shine on Kev's deserved Day Out, the party starts at half-past three and finished sometime on Monday...

can any body tell me if chris holder is coming to ride in meeting or not

 

Haven`t been told that he isn't, on the subject of riders being there or not, will there be a replacement for Lewis Bridger. He didn't make Ipswich last night and has pulled out of Monday`s British Final so his inclusion must be doubtful.

Utter rubbish . As a sport we can't pay riders , especially second tier riders , what they're worth . So a rider who has given British speedway loyal service for over 15 years , definitely deserves a big night as a thank you .

How many British second tier riders have been given a testimonial ?

 

I do agree with starman, riders who get badly injured in the UK should get a regular benefit meeting.

Shane Parker , James Grieves , Matthew Wethers , Theo Pijper , George Stancl , David McAllan ( though that was injury prompted ) Simon Lambert . That's just off the top of my head , there's bound to have been more . So it's not that unusual .

Personally I think anyone who grudges riders like Kevin a testimonial are a bid sad , he's been a true servant to the sport over here , unlike some who pick and choose when they turn up .I don't suppose he's ever ridden for " big " money like some riders have . If we where talking about a former world champ then I'd tend to agree but we're not are we. These guys put their bodies on the line to entertain us and I for one am pleased to see Kevin get rewarded for his service to Berwick and alll the other clubs he's ridden for over the years . Good luck to him hope it's great night with a decent crowd
