  • Ipswich feels like home to me

    Ipswich feels like home to me

    Thursday 2nd November 2017

    The end of the season has been a tough pill to swallow really. We had a great season and got over hurdles all year with all the injuries we suffered. We maintained our form throughout it all and got to two cup finals. To win nothing is a real kick in the teeth. It is hard to take and it...

    The Edinburgh defeat was a bit of a blip, what more can you say, we shouldn’t have lost that night but that is the way it goes. We had some bad luck on the night as well but we had to move on from it and learn from it. It gave us a kick up the backside and we have...

    We are just mates riding our bikes!

    Tuesday 25th July 2017

    We are just over the halfway stage now and we are in a solid position. It would be nice to be a bit higher up but that’s the way it is. It is all about making the play-offs at the end of the day and where we are now is looking good and as long as we continue to get...

    Are the Gerhard engines good for speedway?

    Tuesday 6th June 2017

    It has been a very good month or so and we had a couple of good away wins at Berwick and Scunthorpe. It has been a bit up and down on the road and the big loss at Workington wasn’t ideal but importantly we bounced back from that last week against Newcastle at home with a good win against a...

    The team spirit is brilliant

    Wednesday 26th April 2017

    The season has been full of bad luck so far, especially on the road! We seem to be holding our own at home but it’s one thing after another at the moment but our luck has got to change soon. The Championship is always tough and they are all tough meetings. It is a level playing field this season and...

    I am very excited about this team

    Thursday 16th March 2017

    I went on holiday just after the season finished and didn’t get up to too much before Christmas and then the hard work started in January getting the bikes ready. We got them ready and we got the chance to go to France to do some testing and that was great as we were lucky with the weather too. We...

    I want silverware with Ipswich

    Tuesday 20th December 2016

    I think we have got to be one of the favourites next season and most of the teams are complete now. I do feel we are ever so strong but we don't care about that. Just because we look the strongest it does not mean we are going to be. We can't take anything for granted and we need to...

    I'd like to stay at Ipswich

    Friday 28th October 2016

    It was a bitter-sweet-bitter season really! It was a terrible start and it was a shame because we had a team that on paper looked solid and when it wasn’t working you were thinking ‘what do you do?’ Chris (Louis) and Ritchie (Hawkins) were looking at making changes but you can’t drop a rider for someone who isn’t as good...

    The team has kicked on

    Wednesday 10th August 2016

    It's been a brilliant month for the team and for me personally although it is frustrating as a team that we have found our form so late. We realise that it's going to be a tough push to make the play-offs and the result at Sheffield hurt us a little because we really needed that win. I know we got...

    I'll never forget the crowd reaction

    Saturday 16th July 2016

    It's been another frustrating few weeks as I'm sure you've read in Chris (Louis) and Ritchie's (Hawkins) columns! It's a really funny league this year. After the win at Plymouth I think we all thought we had turned the corner and I think we thought we would go to Berwick and get a win but we didn't. Then we thought...

  • Team changes make us stronger

    Sunday 5th June 2016

    We are trying to look at Redcar as a turning point and forget everything else because it's been such a frustrating month again. It's been more of the same really; certain people performing on some nights and others not and the opposite the next meeting. We just couldn't seem to perform together and the meeting against Redcar was the first...

  • We need to step up

    Friday 13th May 2016

    April has been a difficult month for us as a team and it's been drawn out as there hasn't been a lot of consistency in meetings. We've had big gaps and not had many meetings in a row and I don't think that helps. However, I'm sure we're not the only team in that position. It was very disappointing to go...
