Not Bull crap I’m afraid , you know we are a close knit community here in Workington :P how sad Glasgow wanted to sign our 1-7 , can’t put their own winning team together , only managed to poach 1 ...but as THJ has said this is Scunny’s thread keep the bull for Glasgow one

In this weeks ss it says Jedd List is staying with Ryan Douglas, I can't help thinking it was a mistake not having Ryan in the team to give him guidance. I would have had Ryan and Gino for Garrity and Kinsley.

Stevie was very unfortunate for us last season through injuries 

i don't care if he's been offered extra cash or whatever ,these lads put there lives on the line for our entertainment and I wish him well 

but I'm sure I would rather travel 29 miles and 35 minutes to a home  meeting rather than 240 miles and 4 hours to a home meeting but hey ho at least Stevie hasn't used this as an excuse unlike Ty Proctor

I have sponsored Steve since his days at Newcastle and cash certainty wasn't the driver for him wanting away... and it wasn't anything said or done by Scunny either... next time he is at Scunny ask him and he will give you a straight answer as he's that type of guy...

You are correct when you state travel time and distance are key and these were a main factor in Steve going to Scunny last year coupled of course with his young family and he does now have a considerable journey on his hands certainly compared to what he was used to doing...

THJ

I would think a valid excuse from Ty.When he lives one mile away from the sheffield track why would he want to travel all the way to Workington and back for home meetings? The big bonus for him is he will get paid every week as well.No brainer !!!!

how can something be a mistake when there was zero chance of it happening,  Ryan wanted to try somewhere new

Which also gives him the opportunity to be with him at meetings on days when he is not riding, so everyone's a winner.

Not sure about the numbers but what I do know is he lives near me and when he was interviewed by Nigel Pearson last Wednesday evening they were the reasons he gave for signing for Sheffield  Simple as that.

Like Charlie boy I too live near Ty, I walk to the stadium every meeting takes me 25 to 30 minutes to get to the stadium.

Ty literally lives on the doorstep, anybody who was given the opportunity to cut down such a drastic amount their travel to their job for the same money or around the same money would jump at the chance to do it.

Ty also in the interview was at pains to thank the Promotion and fans for the opportunity and support that he had been given at Workington, and if wasn't  down to long commute which now does not have to face he would have more than likely stayed with the Comets.
