    Witches v Stars 29th July

    Best wishes to the new King's Lynn team manager, Alex. I'm sure he knows the importance of any success for the Stars at Foxhall and will not need any telling how it will boost morale. Good luck also to the Lewi Kerr and Richard Lawson - ride well, win and stay safe. We need you at Arlington on Saturday. And, of course, good luck to every single member of the Stars team. Go lads.

    Eastbourne 2021

    Eastbourne have said they were interested in having an NDL outfit for the 2021 and running a 'second team'. That would be quite a boost to the sport as a whole and for up-and-coming riders in the South East. Not sure if they would want to join the league but some open meetings at that level could be attractive and help bring riders on. I suppose it would depend on how big the league was. Quite a few riders around, I would imagine, who might enjoy riding for the Eagles, especially when they could see a progression route. There is something worthwhile about 'growing your own'. By the way, the news of a possible NDL team was given in the club's online magazine Flying High 3, before anyone accuses me of day dreaming.

    Scunthorpe were in this at the half-way stage and riding very well.

    Eastbourne v Scunthorpe 24/7

    Edward was quite superb. Good starts, strong, feisty first corners and a nice switching of positions in heat 15 with Richard Lawson to ensure Edward got the full maximum. Nice team work between the guys which went down well all round. Edward Kennett did Scott Nicholls from the back at Kent on Tuesday and now this. He's back!

    More rubbish from IronScorpion who has not the faintest idea of how publishing works online. More fake news from IronScoprio (sic)

    Eastbourne v Leicester CL 18/7/21 3pm

    You have to hand it to the Eagles management with their team selections. Nathan Ablitt gets a home debut for the Eagles and Vinnie Joe Foord gets an NDL debut for the Seagulls less than a week after his 15th birthday. This really is growing your own - the experience will be invaluable but it also shows that local youngsters CAN ride for their local team. Also, having local riders is a big PR bonus - the local media will love it down at Eastbourne. I expect there to be plenty of headlines.

    King's Lynn 2022

    "King's Lynn fans" abusing the King's Lynn captain. I would say this: a) they don't represent me or the majority of King's Lynn people (or those in Weasenham - yes, I've been there, maybe twice) and (b) in my book, they are not real Speedway fans. It is shameful that people should do such a thing and they should take a good look at themselves in the mirror and ask: what sort of human being am I? Mr Kerr will get an even bigger shout from me on Sunday when his name is announced at Arlington.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Rising stars in 2022. Probably not so I would not worry. Let Mulford rip

    'They Retired Too Soon'

    Obviously not a favourite track for Lynn riders – I'm still getting over seeing the Stars go 20-4 down at Wimborne Road in the Play Off final. I'd had a lovely day in Poole up to then - down to the Quay, boat trip round the harbour and then boom – dreams shattered in about ten minutes.

    'They Retired Too Soon'

    And Terry was injured just before the final in a second-half race at Saddlebow Road...my memory says he clipped the fence coming out of the 4th bend. Long time ago so may have that wrong.
  16. All-year round sport. Now we're cooking with gas.

    King's Lynn v Ipswich 05/07/21

    Stock car catch fence is not an issue when you stand on terraces nor when you sit in the 'royal box'.
  18. The key to the Arlington weather forecast is not Mystic Meg, whoever that is, but having forecasts specific for Arlington and not for large swathes of the South East and London.
  19. Compare and contrast Eastbourne Speedway and Kent Speedway. Glasgow visit Arlington: The Eagles share information from their own weather guru which once again was totally accurate. They published the information with total transparency. People could see what the club was working on. Here were the facts. The way a speedway club (any club) should treat the supporters. When you tell people what is going on, and why . . . a great relationship is built. Eagles visit Kent: The match is called off at very much the last minute. This is the growing mushrooms method of treating supporters. I know what the track was like and it was in a mess before the rain at 5pm. A call off this morning is what was really needed but once they saw the track this afternoon, the plug should have been pulled. A 3pm call off would have saved Eastbourne fans a lot of time and money.

    Eastbourne v Glasgow CL 4/7/21

    I wish the person who does the Eastbourne Speedway weather forecasts did them for the BBC. The Eagles weather guru was very much spot on with Sunday's forecast. It enabled the meeting to go ahead. If you had looked at weather apps etc - and TV - you would have said OFF without a shadow of a doubt. But the Eagles forecaster narrows it down to Arlington itself - a real skill. Also a pat on the back for the Eastbourne management for (a) having such a skilled person on tap (no doubt it costs but what an investment when the information is so accurate) and (b) being so transparent with the fans and publishing on the club website. Thanks Eastbourne Eagles and means people can travel with confidence. I live close enough not to worry but a lot of fans come from much further afield.

    Mildenhall v Berwick 4th July

    Another Sunday, another Mildenall disaster. The promotion needs to get a grip.

    Eastbourne 2020

    Have you got tickets? No admission "on the door". Not sure re the car park but I would say around 1pm from past experience of Sunday speedway at Eastbourne.

    Eagles just published forecast and it is looking good. It’s online on their website if you want to read
