Is that Graeme Trollope ?

He is still on website as being Sheffield"s track man and practice still on per fixtures. No idea if previous statements are correct

Poolebolton doesnt have a clue as usual. Just continue to ignore him.

So there's been nothing on official news, and someone I know on FB went to Owlerton in midweek and all the tractors etc. were still in situ. Nothing on social media except for a post by poolebolton. Hmmm.

Good to see 3 of our boys getting track time at the Ben meeting .Danny proving his fitness is a massive bonus for us and getting 3rd overall should be a big confidence booster for him.Zaine getting a race win and Kasper a solid 6 is a good start for both lads too.

Kennedy did ok yesterday, was on the pace with the best of them really, but didn't do anything risky. Same for Anderson who would have done better if he hadn't been spinning up on the gate in most of his heats. King was up for it, but he didn't gate well in the final and was never going to get near the front. The one big positive (not for Sheffield!) was the return of "Basher" Bates, he looked good for the majority of the meeting, but petered out in his last few races. Didn't look as if he'd been out for a season and really attacked the track and put in one or two decent passes. Something for the Lions fans to look forward to this year.

All he does is post stupid stories on here with no substance behind him, not the first time. Just ignore him.

I hope he does come back well, it's just that Sheffield simply couldn't afford to take another risk after him being out for the season.

Seems like we have a new track man IMO the track looked better than for along time, i was told Graham has been sacked due to lack of commitment

Yeh was very impressed with the track, very smooth which can only be great for racing.

Glynn taylor was doing track at press and practice and it looked good

Good trackman.

He created Redcar out of nothing.

I see Newcastle Diamonds' Steve Worrall and Simon Lambert are down to ride on Sunday. It's also Newcastle's press and practice day at lunchtime on Sunday. Not sure how they can do both. I'm sure the Newcastle promotion would want them to be at Newcastle!!??

Didn't they agree to do the Sheffield match before signing for Newcastle?. Also would have thought they would prefer to be earning whilst getting some practice in.

That may be so, but it's not like they signed yesterday. Plenty of time to ask Sheffield if they could get two replacements in the three weeks since they signed. I'd much rather they practised around there 'home' track (especially Lambert) instead of somewhere where they are only going to be there twice at the most. It doesn't look good for the press ( come and meet 3/4 of our team on press day) or their  sponsors ( sorry but your logo's wont be appearing in the local press as I won't be at the press day).

My guess is that both will be at Newcastle.

And I reckon that Josh Bates will replace Worrall and Josh McDonald will replace Lambert.
