Couple of points - Kent are called Royals in the National League and looking at the Eastbourne fixture list, they have dates for NL fixtures against Berwick.

The Mildenhall total is over the limit now so presume Jason Edwards will fall away and be at Eastbourne as he will be at the venue with some meetings double headers CL/NL

Oh dear ...... with respect, so many  "3 point"  novice riders whom the public shouldn't be asked to pay to watch.

The gulf between the  " heat leaders" and "the rest"  is huge. Not sure that the BSPL have got this right in their indecent haste to produce new British Talent. 

Suggest the tracks with a " curfew"  will struggle to complete their meetings ...... and those clubs attempting double headers .... well good luck.

I just hope none of these kids get hurt on these rocket ships. Riding and training on one is one thing but competitive racing I'm not sure

These 3.00er kids have been racing in the junior leagues for years, which is arguably more dangerous, sharing the track with 3 other 'wobblers' then riders who know what they're doing in this league like Max Clegg and Nathan Greaves... Injuries are just unfortunately part of the sport, especially for the young kids who are pushing themselves harder and harder each meeting to improve... Everyone's got to start somewhere

Can you tell me one rider from any team named so far that hasn't had any form of ‘ competitive racing ‘ under his belt ?

I don’t think there are any 3point riders that’s been signed that can’t ride a speedway bike there maybe a few races where there’s 2 races in one  but certainly no wobblers in any team

And remember that some of these kids have had 18 months more practice since they obtained their last average. Across all of the leagues you could see some big improvements from young riders. I have to say that none of the 3.00 riders in the Northern teams are not worthy/capable of an opportunity at this level based on what I've seen in the Northern Junior League matches.  Some really talented kids.

I would agree that perhaps some of the higher averaged riders have out grown this league and should have been excluded (i.e. anyone with a CL average over 4.00) but for those complaining about the lower points limit if it had been higher where are all the higher averaged riders coming from?  Genuine question, how many have missed out on a team place due to the lower limit?
