How about a clue at least?

The likely cancellation of the first three months of the season and possibly longer.

Rob is certainly ruffling a lot of feathers to say the least. At the first social do after the takeover he categorically stated the all the existing staff/volunteers would be retained. Yet, six weeks to the start of the season ALL of the "front" volunteers (i.e. turnstile operators, program sellers, etc.) were told that their services were not required this season. Without explanation, as far as I'm aware. Most of whom have been there for ten years or more. Personally I think that's a disgrace. If they were employed they would have strong grounds for unfair dismissal. 

There's obviously a lot more gone on in that department of the club over the years but track staff ( volunteers ) have a stayed on board without no problem at all

Darren Hartley new manager. That could be a shrewd appointment I mean least he will know the rules inside out unlike some other team managers.

What are the “unforeseen circumstances” that means you replace a team manager before the season starts? 

Not that the season will be starting any time soon.

Av never had a Chinese since Boxing Day, but if you can survive a meal from there, you should be able to survive most things, it's not got the name 'The Toxic Takeaway' for nothing.

I think that will go for most clubs if I am honest.

I know it certainly will at my club Leicester.

Darren will bring more than that to the table. He is an ex rider who still has a runout occasionally, knows all the other referees, well acquainted with Newcastle as a club and will know most of the riders. I welcome him to the club, he's straight forward and a good guy. :P

Practice Sun 22nd Mar. Press Day 23rd March, but keep an eye on things as this may change.

BUT... in addition

Facebook statement:

Unfortunately, with the current global situation with coronavirus, we are making the decision to postpone the press and practice social event on the Sunday evening, until the situation becomes clearer.

We have not taken this decision lightly but the health and safety of all our staff, riders and supporters is of our upmost importance.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Further details will be released in due course.
