Plymouth Gladiators 2021

Recommended Posts

If Plymouth are to enter the Championship in 2021 their options for riders seem fairly limited apart from some of ex Rebels of 2020.

Schlein? BWD? Anders Rowe? etc.

Would of thought Ben Barker would be a candidate but was quickly snapped up by Newcastle.

Adam Ellis and Rasmus Jensen are others I can think of but most of these options won't be cheap and 8+ averages. Seems to be a lack of 4,5,6 and 7 point riders available.

Are Ellis and Jensen not hog-tied due to Polish rules and therefore unavailable?

What about Nick Agertoft or Nicklas Porsing or if he is over here with Peterborough how about Hans Andersen as No1? Brits would be Anders Rowe Alfie Bowtell and Nathan Stonman and if he can be tempted back over what about our very own Swedish Geordie Ludvig Lindgren?

Just some ideas

I would have thought 'enry Atkins would be a strong contender for the rising star berth? Bowtell Could do a job but the big hitters are what's needed, can't help thinking BWD will be fixed up somewhere already and Roo Boy might want a few too many pennies?

I would be surprised if Plymouth sign anyone from the defunct Somerset team. Ben barker would have been most obvious but he's already committed to Newcastle.

I would like them to join the league provided they can sign a competitive team..... a below par team would be a big mistake

good luck in getting a suitable team

Not sure mac it could work and if true what a crowd pleaser... brilliant for the Championship... a 1* RS reserve is only 13 points used so 28 points for 5 more riders... yes they could work around that surely...

Bjarne Pedersen on anything more than 7 will be an awful signing. 
 

Crump though would surely still pile the points in at this level.

Crump would definitley put bums on seats (thats if we are aloowed this season)  so all championship tracks would get a mini boost from this
