My point was that basically there's nothing on at Leicester on Saturday night because Kent signed a rider who has put his "TV Career" ahead of his speedway one... the exact reason why he's not signed back at Leicester ironically. 

But you did sign him previously knowing full well he had tv commitments.

Yes, and unless I'm mistaken I do remember issues during that season... Didn't BT let him off a GP and got a guest in lol

Think if you asked any promoters they will tell you the same fan's do not attend in numbers like they use to. Which is sad. So you would have to have big sponsorship Which is not there. 

I suppose it's almost a self fulfilling prophecy... Because fans don't attend fixture filler challenge or individual meetings at the beginning or @rse end of the season, they assume they won't attend a well promoted meeting in the height of summer. There's a reason the British SGP was scheduled for this weekend, it just needed somebody with the vision to put a meeting on somewhere. A Young Lions test match against somebody. Matches involving the national side are proven crowd pullers.

New declaration from Leicester today with Zaine Kennedy replacing Jake Knight.

Leicester look a very tidy team now, it will be interesting to see just how good Kennedy is. 

I understand this isn’t effective until after Eastbourne , that was the Leicester plan anyway. But things change fast in speedway

5.46pm Thursday night. And not a thing about the Eastbourne meeting on the Leicester website. No mention that we have a guest, who he is, why we have one. Nothing. Speedway never stops astounding me.

Scott has not put his tv career ahead of his speedway one, he is riding champ & prem leagues same as he has done for years. All he has done is change clubs to accommodate his other job as a tv pundit.

Anyway, why on earth would Leicester think Kent would choose to go to a track without their No 1 rider & track specialist!?

If you want to know, read Eastbourne website. Al there 

I have just visited the Eastbourne website to check out the possible team news for Sunday & ........................................................

........... it mentions debuts for Eagles & Seagulls, nothing on the visitors.

Checking through the fixtures ............................................................ WHAT! No fixtures!

STATS ...................... Up to date league table, ......... 2020 Eagles Averages(from 2019) & 2019 averages rolling, 2019, Home & Away

All this from their very high standard, much publicised, modern & glorified website. :shock:  :oops: :rofl: :blush: ................ ;) :rolleyes:

Simply click on Fixtures & Stats - it's all there.

Click on News. There's 2 articles relating to the Leicester fixture with both line-ups.

It's really not that difficult...

Someone could have put the British Under 21 Final on maybe...
