Wilson dean would have fitted for morley prior to any 4h 4a by all accounts, him at 3, brennan 2 and bowtell at 7 and that one change makes Eastbourne a different side.

Bowtells doing really well considering he is the lamb on a spit.

Look at the 4 riders, scott nicholls, schlein, bomber and kennett and tell me who has the highest starting average but is the worst of the 4 .

Dress it up however you want but that's the reason eastie have 4 reserves in the side .

Bradley Wilson Dean would come in on his converted PL average of 7.91 effective 1st May.

Birmingham enquired about BW-D told quite firmly he is focusing on Poland and would not be able to ride Saturday or Sunday in UK .

The Eastbourne Fineprint Eagles have signed Kyle Newman in time for Saturday’s showdown with the Berwick Bandits (subject to BSPA approval).

Kyle will join the team as an injury replacement for Tom Brennan, who suffered a broken leg on Saturday.

A full update on Tom’s condition will follow later in the week.

Naturally, everyone at the club wishes Tom all the very best.

Co-promoter Trevor Geer said: “Make no mistake, losing Tom is a huge blow to the club and rider and the only consolation is that his amazing start to the season allows us to introduce a rider of Kyle’s quality. 

“He [Kyle] has proved he knows the fastest way around Arlington and his experience will be crucial as we seek to rebuild our confidence and season.”

Team news for the Championship League match at Somerset tomorrow (Wednesday, May 22) will be issued later today. 

The club will need to secure a two-point guest to replace Tom as the new averages come do not come into to force until after this match.

wish Kyle well a nice lad.

he started desperately slowly for us and looked race rusty.

had a couple of decent meetings v Somerset at home (paid 9) including a stunning overtake of Schlein and not many doing that in CL and then did OK  conveniently enough at Arlington with 8 points in our KOC drubbing on Good Friday.

I thought he had turned a corner but then 2 poor meetings 2 thrashings at Sheffield and home to Eastbourne.

He was expected to do Heat Leader job for us but with 3 proper Heat Leaders at Eagles may take pressure off him a bit.

I hope you're right, should be so much less pressure, probably riding at 4, than being second heat leader to the lowest average no1 in the league. Although wanting a quick turnaround of fortune, I'm sure John Cook would have put that in his mind, especially knowing him from Lakeside days.

I think what every Team found in the winter and what every team is finding now is that there is a lack of ready and available riders with an average in the 5.00 to 6.50 range.

That's the range Brennan has ridden himself in to.

You can take a chance abroad or a guy who may not have ridden for a while, as a No 4 I think he is better than Morley, not as good as Brennan at home but may be better at this stage away.

He's a genuine trier and good to see him get fixed up and you make a good point that John Cook and Will Pottinger will know him well from Lakeside.

He did finish the season at Lakeside carrying an injury. He probably needs a few more meetings under his belt.

Have to feel for Tom not just because of the nasty injury but because he has seen his average leap and then picked up the break. So whilst he was definitely performing well its not a "true" seasons average. Huge plus is that he is an emerging talent with strong links at Eastbourne so there will always be a place for him when he is ready which is not something every rider can rely on.

Hope he doesn't try to come back too quickly, get those young bones healed properly. Hopefully him, Edwards, and eventually Ablitt will be the basis of another great Eastie era, although not quite the same great era of speedway in general as it was in the Dugard, Norris etc time.

It might be. I said I will never see another English world champion. Since me saying that, Tai has won in three times.
