Two minutes, all four riders
I discovered that the speedway team was still in existence, and I resolved to make a trip down memory lane to see if the sport had changed from 50 years ago. The track now is at Ashfield, and I found my way to Hawthorn Street on Sunday. I must admit not to having big expectations. As it turned out, it was a splendid day!
Meet Roary, the current Glasgow Tigers mascot.
It didn't take me long to find out who the stars of the 2015 team are. I did appreciate the maximum scored by captain Aaron Summers, and the paid maximum by Richard Lawson.
Back in 1965, I was in the Charlie Monk fan club! Read about his career here.
here and here.
Good luck to the team against Somerset later this week.
Fifty years ago this programme was bought at an outing to the White City. Perhaps some things have changed in the intervening years, and I don't mean the price of the programme.
