    Sussex Cup

    Anyway, no matter what it is called, Bradley Wilson-Dean won - and he seemed to be given a cup, as well as the iPAD
  2. Eastbourne fans will be watching closely as the Young Stars are next up at Arlington

    Neither funny or appropriate. That's an insult which the smiley thumbs-up does not alleviate. Never mind, its only the Elite League

    Seems I have rattled a cage. First move on here is to accuse a person of having different names to post under. Maybe I am KKS. Can't see any reason why people rush to defend the Elite League.

    It may not be original but it is still true.

    It is supposed to be an Elite League - so you might reasonably expect teams to have arrangements in hand for contingencies and not need Joe Bloggs. It is either Elite or it is not.

    Kent V Eastbourne, Easter Monday 6th April

    Brendan is his own worst enemy. He opens mouth before engaging brain. He also has a highly inflated idea of his own value. Just about found his own level last night.

    Can't believe this meeting is going ahead. Totally mockery. Elite League - they are having a laugh.

    Sussex Cup

    Can this thread have the proper title: Championship of Sussex. What's the Sussex Cup - probably a horserace at Goodwood in the summer

    Eastbourne V Kent 3/4/15

    Fabulous result from Kent today. This looks like the beginning of something big. So happy for Martin and Connor. They have worked so hard in the last three months and have been up to silly o'clock getting ready for the start of the season. An Easter double over Kent is a great reward. The last time Eastbourne had won away from home was in June 2012. Today's win, is the first of many. Martin promised Eastbourne would win away from home when he spoke at the fans' forum. His team has delivered first time out away.

    Mason is still unwell and Greenwood will be at No 1 for the Eagles.

    Don't tell him. It is much more entertaining watching him chase. Great value

    Glenn was unavailable. Nothing unexpected and Connor told me they were aware when they appointed.

    Eastbourne V Kent 3/4/15

    Meeting went ahead at a cracking pace. Super show from the Eagles, especially Marc and Bradley. Big plus was that the fans had a full second half- 27 (yes 27) races in total for our £12.00. That is real value for money. New promotion are on a winner. Ben Morley did well for Kent and I can certainly watch a lot of more of James Shanes. Well done to both teams on what was a damp night. One fears the EL lot would have moaned and groaned. National League is a breath of fresh air. And no tractor. As Alex said - not even once.

    Martin is speaking to the man in charge of the weather - who is now quaking in his boots. Man in charge has promised to change the weather asap.

    Not sure that Eastbourne fans need to worry about Morley. Rumour mill now saying Morley has to ride for Redcar Admittedly, no confirmation on either the Redcar or the Kent websites but they maybe have not yet caught up with the news.

    All happening down at Arlington. Just spotted there is a £2 discount for season ticket holders from Brighton and Hove Albion and Crawley Town FC + from the gee gees meeting at Lingfield Park on Friday. You have to admit, the new Eastbourne promotion are really going for it.

    Take a look at the website. http://eastbourneeagles.co/news.php?extend.718 Best to snap up a rising talent before those people over the border take a fancy to him.

    Hearing the new promotion at Eastbourne are going to relay the track and seed it with finest grass seed. Lawnmower on order for Bob (ride-on, of course). Seriously, just seen the Eagles have signed another grasstrack rider. Martin and Connor Dugard are certainly not letting the grass grow under their feet

    Still can't let Eastbourne go. Not in the Elite League any more but can't resist twisting the knife one more time. Join the revolution. The National League is where speedway is in the UK

    Eastbourne 2015

    Eagles ready to soar National League newboys, the Eastbourne IT First Eagles, aim to chase glory on all fronts this season. The first test comes on Good Friday at their home stadium of Arlington (7.30pm) and club chairman, Martin Dugard, reckons his team is ready. Friday’s match is against local rivals, the Kent Kings in the National Trophy. Dugard said: “Kent at home is a perfect start for us. A local derby on Good Friday has long been the tradition at Eastbourne and it is fantastic to renew rivalries with a team from Kent, remembering the huge battles we had with Canterbury in the old second division. “We expect Kent will give us a tough battle but we will start the season on a winning note and set a marker for the other clubs in the league.” Dugard, son Connor and other members of the backroom team have been hard at work to ensure the club put on a great show for the first meeting. Harley Davidson motor-cycles from the 1066 Chapter will form the centrepiece of the pre-match parade. Dugard promised the club’s intention was to “get on with the racing” to build up excitement on the terraces. “Our admission prices are more than competitive with others in the National League but we aim to give great value to supporters by staging a series of races for younger riders in the second half,” he said. Young fans are uppermost in the club’s mind. The first 100 children through the turnstiles on Friday will receive a free Easter egg. Admission prices see children 0-12 admitted free of charge and those aged 13 to 17 for just a fiver. The adult price is £12. The programme has received a total overhaul during the winter with a new design and new features. Turnstiles will open at 6pm on Friday and fans are asked to note that the car park will not be open until 5.30pm. On Easter Monday, the IT First Eagles race at Kent. *Eastbourne will compete this year in the National League, the National Trophy, the KO Cup and aim to secure a place in the end-of-season Gold Cup, reserved for the top four league clubs. Team: Eastbourne: David Mason, Richard Andrews, Marc Owen, Bradley Wilson-Dean, Danny Warwick, Georgie Wood, Kelsey Dugard.

    Looks to me if there may be some needle in this. Many of us still remember those huge battles we had with Canterbury. Bring that spirit back to speedway and the sport will be on the up. What Connor said is small beer in comparison to what went on in the past. It is time speedway was stirred up. Got far too bland and vanilla in recent years.
