New role for Jason Pipe.

CONGRATULATIONS to Jason Pipe, who is now the new National League Co-Ordinator. He replaces the long-serving Peter Morrish who has stepped down from the role.
With previous National League experience as a former team manager of Buxton, Pipe, who spent last season running Peterborough Thundercats in both the Midland Development League and Northern Junior League, and only recently accepted an offer to take over the management of Elliot's affairs, has agreed a three-year-arrangement with the BSPA and is looking forward to helping the league to flourish under his guidance.

'Welcome' Di and Linda, our first sponsors from Mildenhall.

Elliot, Ed and the rest of the Team EKR 'family' would like to extend a warm welcome to our first sponsors from supporters of Elliot's new National League club, Mildenhall.
Diane Farmer is a well-known figure in speedway circles, particularly at clubs in the east of the country, and alongside her duties as a longtime member of the Fen Tigers official supporters club she has also performed similar roles elsewhere and personally supported many individual riders over a considerable period.

NJL proving its worth.

The Northern Junior League is certainly proving its value as a training ground for emerging young talent. Building year-on-year on the number of riders that emerge from its ranks into senior racing the total of riders already named in National League teams for the start of the 2019 season eclipses all previous totals for a single season, proving without any doubt that the move to introduce academy and development leagues into the structure a few years ago was a wise move and there is no reason not to believe that in future years all three of the current amateur leagues will help Team GB to build a national squad that should be as strong as any of its rivals.
