Godfrey's 16

Recommended Posts

Well the way riders are signing for Polish teams and with other riders who are falling by the way side it looks like the 16 names Rob Godfrey has come up with might just come in handy eh...

Wonder if he can conjure up another 16 British names of say riders who have retired in the last 10 years and we can run a blended league of young kids and veterans...

Names on a post card...

Joe Screen. James Grieves. Stuart Robson. Adam Roynon. Lee Complin. Paul Clews. Andrew Tully. The Branney Boys. Jamie Courtney. Craig Watson. Gary Irving.  Leigh Lanham. Dsvid Howe. Paul Cooper. Chris Schramm...

There ya go 16... and there are many more... just to stir things up a bit like...

Regards 

THJ

Rob Hollingworth? He's ridden more recently than some of those in THJ's list.

Saw pictures of Doug "Flyer" Wyer a few weeks ago, looks good at 73. And also read that Graham Plant's been back on a speedway bike

In fairness those 16 riders are a loss to the sport just think how much knowledge and experience they have and could pass on to junior riders, Wayne Carter was brilliant with the young scorpions team 2005/2008 . Similar could happen with this list. 
would be great having someone like David Howe in my lads corner

Wayne carter.. david howe.. garry stead.. would be great for the young riders nowadays.. it's about time our powers that be got the likes of the riders I've mentioned above    etc on board with training days & other factors of our sport to make our kids well competitive & we could also have the likes of sean Wilson helping on advising on  & helping out with engine set ups at meeting etc

The BSPL don't let former riders in free of charge, why should the ex-riders help the promoters?
