James Sarjeant has been sold to Leicester.

Its in this weeks star ,the January sales have begun.

That's good news for Leicester then , they have the required minimum of their own assets to keep in the game ,

To be fair if it wasn't Horton it would've been the bspa and possibly on his behalf? Also do Bees have to sell assets as I gather NL clubs are not allowed assets?

Sell them. To be honest I'm not too bothered about assets, the asset system is a farce anyway. Once we stopped running at Brandon our assets were very likely to be sold or given away one way or another!

 

Any team news coming soon?

the asset system as you say is nonsense , just another badly planned idea ,  Coventry still own riders who no longer ride here , that little loophole should have been closed years ago , if an asset of a club chooses not to ride for them they should have to pay back their transfer fee, minimum , can you imagine a footballer deciding he doesn't want to play here anymore and buggering off to play in Spain for more money ,

Gary Patchett said  bspa would've held the Bees assets but any funds from that would've been passed to Horton anyway.

Maybe he had to sell sarj as part of financing the running of  nl team and allowing them to ride at Leicester also is Han Anderson not a Coventry asset

Horton did say selling assets and loan fees will help pay for riding at Leicester.

You can keep the assets you already have, just can’t ‘sign’ new ones.

I was told that National League clubs can now sign assets but that there are strict restrictions on the price to be paid if one of the assets is

sold to a senior team.  Can anyone confirm that ?

The club will need to sort out some form of social media as the save Cov speedway group took over Coventry Bees Twitter feed.

Perhaps Coventry should have paid for adverts in the Press, on social media, on buses, billboards, TV, radio; well perhaps not.

Those who followed Coventry in the Elite League will have to get used to where you are in the pecking order when it comes to riding in the NL.

You are in the bottom division now and that's how you will be regarded by much of the media.

It makes it worse that you are riding in Leicester -- doubt the Leicester area media will be much bothered and you will have to fight for every scrap of publicity in Coventry.

You will be in the back of the book in the Speedway Star; your big news will be small news when set against the likes of Poole.

Good luck Coventry, you are going to need it.

 

What is your point exactly?

It was a reply to a member who queried why the news had not been shouted from the rooftops.

The point is: Speedway struggles to get publicity. NL clubs are at the bottom of the pile. Coventry riding at Leicester makes it even harder.
