Sheffield and Kent mentioned elsewhere meaning eight teams. Bob’s your Uncle.

I'm not sure, but don't teams that move up get first dibs on the riders from teams dropping down?

And a number of Pawlicki's missed matches were also Polish 'recalls' for which the Bees were allowed a guest at reserve!

Fair enough if that’s the case, can only remember the number eight situation.

If Poole cannot afford PL how on earth can Kent, add to that their curfew on the finishing time, with the request to move the curfew to a later time and change of racing days refused during 2019.

Even though there are over 70 miles between them it is classed as local derby..hope they don't go down. Get Zummerzet back up..70 plus miles away.

Presumably somebody (Buster? :D) has the money to make it happen.

100% not a bluff,  Sheffield look like they will be up under new ownership, (so you can guess who that is) and don't be surprised 2 see 2 teams in top league that no one would ever have thought about

Newcastle & Redcar by any chance?

Not a cat in hells chance it will be Newcastle... 

1. Their race day clashes with Polish league if it is not the designated race days and 

2 If it is designated race days Monday is known to be financial suicide for the promoters and Thursday is a greyhound night at Brough and has been for years and years

Pretty dangerous bluff to ignore the wishes of three quarters of your fan base. 

Tbh I think they want it to be a bluff more than anything else.

Yes I think it’s crap. From watching Darcy and Noddy to novice wobblers in the space of a few short years is 5hite in anyone’s book. I understand why financially but it doesn’t make it any more palatable. Think the crowd will take a bit of a knock as well.

Sorry Steve, but I think you are wrong here. Three quarters of the Poole fans want this or have requested it, so I can't see the crowd going down.
