    Edinburgh vs Glasgow 5/4/24

    May 18 is the day for the top six teams to play their final fixture so no real problem about racing on Sunday May 19.
  2. Next time looks like being June 14 in Sweden and we don't have a fixture then.
  3. With a Dane free policy for 2024, he was never an option.
  4. Dickson has pulled this move before, remember Berge going to five with the Tigers at Armadale some years ago.

    You might well be right but when I expressed concern about a Tigers meeting clashing with a Scottish international football match, I was met with derision.

    Mike Parker's Poor Deal

    Ivan Mauger got the move to Belle Vue that he demanded in 1969 but Mike Parker ultimately got little in return.. and it took the feet from a previously successful track. Read about it in https://classicspeedwaymemories.webador.co.uk/april-2024/guest-who-s-riding-for-us

    Alternatively Glasgow v Edinburgh on Sunday May 19, Tigers have no home meeting scheduled that weekend and Edinburgh v Glasgow May 31, and leave Plymouth out of it.

    Plymouth probably wouldn't want to change that fixture as they're at Berwick the next night. PERHAPS they could come to Glasgow on the Sunday making a northern round trip of Edinburgh, Berwick Glasgow and the freed up Friday (May 10) could be used for Tigers v Monarchs, with the Armadale meeting being staged on May 31, a date both clubs are free, though the Edinburgh v Leicester NDL meeting would have to be moved.

    League clashes aren't until August which is far too long to delay the competition . May 31 is a blank Friday for both teams, though There may be an NDL fixture at Armadale that night. Really need a fixtures secretary to ensure both teams have a common blank date next year. Poole and Oxford have two mutual blank Wednesdays in May so they should have no problems in rearranging the leg at Oxford.

    Tough times for football clubs

    Similarly neither Bristol Rovers nor Newport County now play at the stadia which housed the speedway track. Nelson long gone too?
  11. Scottish football teams whose grounds were once Speedway tracks are having a tough time. Clyde, who at one time played at Shawfield are currently bottom of Scottish League Div2 (tier4) and are in danger of ending up,in the Lowland League next year, where they will join Albion Rovers of Coatbridge, Berwick and Cowdenbeath , all now in reduced circumstances. Edinburgh City now back playing at Meadowbank are being relegated to Div2, while Queens Park (Hampden) look like avoiding the drop to Div1. Blantyre Celtic are now an amateur team while Ashfield Juniors no longer play at Ashfield, having moved to a council facility a few miles away Any English equivalents? Barrow seem to have bucked the trend by getting promotion back into English Div2.

    Interesting that there are no similar restrictions around the third and fourth bend, where flying stones are surely more likely than the home straight. Nor the narrow passageway that used to exist immediately in front of the now demolished Tote Board.

    Glasgow do much the same in front of the grandstand. Don't know why.
  14. Yes you've caught me out! Was basing it on the wwos website.
