    England v USA @ Swindon 24 May 1980

    Not really much help but the Ipswich programme for the 4th meeting of the 1981 series (7th May) lists Les Collins scoring 0 at Swindon in 1980. They only give the individual scores, no indication of number of rides taken unfortunately.

  10. This fixture wasn't covered in Speedway Star but by all accounts a programme was produced and the meeting went ahead. Can anyone tell me who the winner was?

    I have been referencing the tables as published on the SGB website so I assume they have been taken from the same source. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Thanks for that. I've just spotted another strange 'un - 18th June Tamworth 49 - 35 Wombwell appears to have been staged over 14 heats whereas the rest are over 16. Any further info on that one?

    As I noted in the original post - 29/10 (Cubs NOT Heathens!) v Hanley (staged at Tamworth)

    According to available sources that match was Cradley v Hanley. Tamworth beat Hanley 60-35 on 1st October.

    If I'm correct, the Midlands v South Cup qualifying rounds were split into two groups. The Southern group (Eastbourne, Exeter, Plymouth & Southampton) seems to be in order. The Midlands group (Cradley Heath, Hanley, Tamworth & Wombwell) however seems to be missing a fixture, namely Cradley v Wombwell. The dates I have for Heathens Cubs(!) are: 04/07 at Wombwell 04/08 v Tamworth 04/08 at Tamworth 28/08 at Hanley 29/10 v Hanley (staged at Tamworth) The final was staged 05/11 so I'm surmising that following the 29/10 fixture the Wombwell match became a dead rubber and wasn't run. But was there any attempt to run it beforehand as I have no entry for a postponed fixture?

    I need to know which of these results are incorrect: Poole v Southampton 17/05 51-33 and 25/10 49-35 Southampton v Poole 13/07 56-27 and 26/10 58-26 *Updated

    That puts that mystery to bed. Superb work as always, thank you.

    A decent theory for sure. The Speedway Researcher Hastings file lists the 16/08 Southampton v Hastings fixture (at Poole) as the Anniversary Cup but the second leg (26/08 at Plymouth) as the North v South Anniversary Cup. The Yarmouth file has the tie with Hull as North v South (Cup) and the Hull file states North v South Cup Semi Final.

    Excellent, thanks. My final conundrum concerns the third division North v South 21st Anniversary Cup. It appears that the two semi finals were Yarmouth v Hull and Southampton v Hastings, with Southampton going on to defeat Hull in the final at Cradley Heath. However I have 4 ties which don't seem to lead anywhere for the various winners: Exeter bt. Plymouth, Coventry bt. Poole, Tamworth bt. Cradley Heath and Hanley bt. Wombwell. What's going on?
