Poole v Leicester 08/06/22

Recommended Posts

Just had a quick scroll through this thread and noticed that there's no comment from Poole's No.1 loyal fan (Turnip) whom previously announced that he supports Poole because they win trophies ? :D

I wonder if he'll be seen at Beaumont Park on a Saturday evening from now on ....:D

We are assuming he has been banned, that is why the original thread disappeared!

Oh, thanks for the info...

I didn't know about an 'original' thread?

Shame if he/she has been banned...he/she was quite amusing :D

Banned for what?  Being a bit of a turnip? :party:

So why on earth has “Turnip” been banned? His humour might be a bit strange but he was never rude or aggressive. People complained to mods as they didn’t like his jokes?

I don't suppose this will be any consolation to Poole fans but I think the last time a Leicester team won at Poole was on 3rd October 1973 when they won 40.38. Ray Wilson top scored with 14.

Wow! And Poole's guest, the great Peter Collins couldn't save the day.
Let's hope it's not nearly 50 years before the next victory there.

Don't worry Lisa. By my reckoning, if the next victory is as long away as the last one, you don't need to start worrying until Wednesday 11th February 2071 :rolleyes:

This got me puzzled because I thought my memory was playing tricks, but I was certain I was there in the 80's when Lions beat Poole. On holiday at the time in what was the old Leicester holiday fortnight. So I checked & the memory wasn't playing tricks 7th July 1982, Poole 38 Leicester 40. Wasn't a last heat decider though Poole got  a 5-1 in heat 13 to narrow the scoreline.

Neil Collins top -scored with 11 , brother Les 10, Lions were using R/R for Colin Cook & lost Steve Regeling after 2 races, so effectively won with 5 riders.

I'm jealous really. I had to wait from 1949 until 2019 for a Leicester team to win anything meaningful!

Thanks Steve. Alan Jones told me it was in the early 70s so I looked it up in his book.

Oh that's alright then. We've only got to wait till Wednesday 10th May 2062 for the next victory over Poole away.
