Lawson, Kennett & Wajtknecht apparently.

No real surprises  other than Kerr.

 

Maybe promoter Cook will rename the side the Eastbourne Hammers to try and lure some of the ex Hammers fans down to support the opposisiton  :lol:

They shoudl be nigh on invincible on their tricky little track at Arlington.

Very top heavy then,relying on zach to put in some big scores seems a team very reliant on lawson and kennett if true.

Around Eastie they will be fine. Away from home a whole different story.

Don't undervalue the two reserves, they are developing fast and likely to be among the best in the league. Some of their times were as good as some from the Elite League days and they came within 0.1 of Adam Ellis' track record.  Their inclusion in next next years team was never in doubt.

I like the look of the team and my only question mark is against Lewis Kerr.  Is he going to be the same after his latest injury or is his confidence going to be eroded?.

Totally agree. As a Newcastle fan Lewis would be one of the first names on my team sheet. That lad oozes quality, determination, and quite frankly came back even stronger after that life threatening crash. For me, he is a year away from proving a real top man in this league, and this could be his year. In a season where you need riders to put points on their average, Lewi will put more on than Lawson and kennett combined, and for me is a better shout that Ellis, especially on such a lower average.

best of luck mr Kerr, not that you need it!

Lewis Kerr is the real deal. He will love Arlington (and we will love him) and and away from home, he will be magic.

Too many people under-estimate the Eastbourne effect on riders.

On a slightly different note, wonder with John Cook back in charge whether we'll see the return of Kevin Coombes as the announcer? Would be a great addition to the line up, always enhanced the atmosphere, remember him fondly winding up the Poole fans when we were in Elite and had Nicki Pedersen riding against them.
