I doubt he has enough money to buy one of Matt Ford's cars!

Heard the club is up for sale with offers over £500,000. You get more than a couple of tractors and some shale.

A new owner should be making a profit within a couple/three seasons. Many sponsors with the main sponsor paying around £100,000 a year.

Not surprising really ... you considering a bid?

I'd heard a similar figure.

He's got no chance of getting anywhere near that.

Have to be honest mate I don't think anyone is going to be stupid enough to buy a British Speedway Club in this day and age. :sad:

Another wind up post, as that amount for a couple of tractors and a bit of shale is a lot.  Every other item in the club can just walk away so is of no value.

No! Think what I do for a living is far less stressfull and less responsibility. And probably just as profitable.

Money to be made there for the new owner, who needs to be fully knowledgeable  in speedway.

I think that's a tip who the new owner is, knowledgeable about speedway.

It has to be Starman, he's been trained up all year by Ford. That's how he knew so much about Ford's plans, plus he's the only person daft enough to buy a speedway team.

I'm fairly sure that in the last accounts filed for 2017 Poole's assets were valued at around #130k

No idea actually but even if one of them was a Robin Reliant it would be too much for Mick Horton!
