    In 1932 there were apparently rumours that Crystal Palace were relocating to Catford. Fred Mockford denied this and added that construction of speedway at Catford Stadium would not be permitted - Norwood News, 2 Sep 1932

    New Cross 1963

    I have an autograph book with about half a dozen rider autographs from Coventry Speedway 1930, which include Squib Burton, Jack Parker and Tom Farndon. They are genuine - they were collected by my previous mother-in-law and she handed the book to me in the 1960s I often wonder if they have any value?
