    We have shown loyalty to the team

    Friday 1st December 2017

    I am very happy with the 2018 team and in many ways it was a simple job as we knew what we wanted. Ritchie (Hawkins) and myself spoke about it before the end of the season and basically said that this team has gelled so well that with the injuries and not being able to put out the team we...

    Unwavering effort from start to finish

    Friday 3rd November 2017

    To steal a line, I have just read a piece Mike Bacon put online called ‘the team that never was’ and that sums up our season really. Before we even started we had problems. To sum up 2017, it has been the best team I have worked or been involved with for many years, just for its unwavering effort from...

    At the time, the home defeat to Edinburgh seemed like a bad thing, which of course it would. We have been raving about how strong we are at home this season so to lose to Edinburgh was a shock and a blow. I always thought that it would be Edinburgh, not as one of the toughest teams in the league...

    With the play-offs it is all about peaking at the right time and we certainly have not peaked yet so hopefully it is pointing to the fact that we will peak come September. The first job is to qualify for the play-offs and the second job is to peak just before them and be at your best. At the moment...

    We are making tweaks to the track

    We have weathered the storm. I think that is the best way to describe the first half of our season. With the two injuries we had and Kyle (Newman) coming back and having to bring in replacements, it has all been a bit topsy-turvy and unsettling but we have weathered the storm. I feel that we have come through it...

    I can see us going on a strong charge

    Wednesday 26th April 2017

    I look back on the first month of the season with mixed emotions. We put out a strong side on paper at the start of the season and I don’t think we are ever going to see it which is unfortunate but we won’t let that beat us. Given the circumstance we have been under it has been a good...

    It is going to be an interesting year

    Wednesday 15th March 2017

    I need a rest after this winter! It's mainly been the usual stuff of organising sponsorship and advertising and things like that and there are other people at the club who help me with that. It has gone reasonably well but we need more financial input into the club. Hopefully the team will start strongly, we are starting as many...

    I will start with an update on the ongoing track work at Foxhall. All the ground work is done and the drainage is also complete. We're waiting for the right weather to get the surface on and it took us a little longer than we thought to source the right recyclable material to make the material up but that is...

  • A season of two halves

    A season of two halves

    Monday 24th October 2016

    It was a season of two halves that's for sure! It was a disappointing start and it's no secret that we struggled at the bottom end of the team. Everyone was giving their best but they just couldn't settle into Premier League racing and routine. The Ben (Barker) and Joe (Jacobs) changes made a big difference and Ben brought some...

    It's make or break now

    Monday 8th August 2016

    We had to be 100% at home in July and we will have to continue that at home for the rest of the season. It was good though as all the performances were convincing apart from Rye House. That wasn't so good as they were a team we needed to stop getting a point but that aside we seem as...

    Giving Youth A Chance

    Monday 11th July 2016

    I genuinely thought Plymouth was the turning point for our season. I know we went there with two ex Plymouth riders and that definitely gave us a boost down there but it wasn't just them it was a good all round team performance. It did feel like it was the start of something different to what we have been doing...

  • Pivotal meetings to our season

    Sunday 5th June 2016

    It's been a mixed to poor month in terms of results. It's been a disappointing start to the season and we've said that previously and that continued this month. I do feel our hand has been forced into making changes because we went out of both cup competitions and our league position was down at the bottom. It's not acceptable...
