    14/06/1986 Cradley Heath v Swindon (LC)

    That's what I was hoping to hear. The results sheet I have lists it as a 41-37 win for Cradley so I couldn't get the figures to tally with the final table. Many thanks.

    14/06/1986 Cradley Heath v Swindon (LC)

    Thanks. What result does it give for 26th May Swindon v Cradley, again in the League Cup?
  4. Can someone confirm the result of this match for me please?
  5. Listed in the Speedway Star fixtures but no subsequent mention of the outcome. Can anyone enlighten me?

  7. Can anyone confirm the Glasgow riding order in this meeting? It's impossible to work out from the Star report and a blank programme. If you were at the match and have a marked programme, I'd also be greatful for a note of the second half results. Thanks in advance.

    Hopefully you can access the file, a scan of the Glasgow programme https://app.box.com/s/s6bpe7s5xnwjm2bz1ukjxfpbfbj85bw5

    Ivan Mauger's 1969 season

    I have a completed programme from the Glasgow match. Heat 9, Mauger replaced Broadbelt, broke the tapes, and Broadbelt came back in.

    Rider I.D. Barrow 1978 D. Appleton

    I've actually got a second scan of the programme and what is written in could pass for Stansfield. Unfortunately the writing is so bad I can't be 100%. As you say Alan Stansfield was definitely around so there is a good chance it was him. Just need this D. Appleton now.

    Rider I.D. Barrow 1978 D. Appleton

    I'm trying to confirm the names of 2 second-halfers who featured in the Barrow v Glasgow meeting, 18th April 1978. One is D. or possibly G. Appleton, the other A. Stanforth (Stansfield?). Any help greatly appreciated.

    Yes I've checked the 1978 yearbook but no dice.

    Coatbridge 1976

    Thanks Steve. Templeton only rode in 8 meetings but I'm two rides short. I'm convinced one of them is in the KOC tie at Workington but I've run out of options for the others. Highly frustrating. I'm also one ride too many for Collins (which looks like that Ellesmere Port match where he is only afforded (exc) with no reason in the report), Richardson is two rides too many - one looks like heat 2 at Berwick, and the other I was convinced was going to be with McKeon (1 ride short) at Workington but not according to what you posted. Rourke and Gallagher resolved each other at Mildenhall. The averages in the Coatbridge programmes track all of these errors so they must be traceable.
