  1. The 1991 Sunbrite Division 2 Reserves League (Central) was won by Sheffield (36 points). Other teams in the league were Milton Keynes (25), Peterborough (18), Nottingham (16) and Stoke (05). Teams rode against each other home and away twice with a bonus point being awarded for aggregate victory. Two bonus points available against each opposition. Long Eaton changed their name to Nottingham during the season, but were still referred to as Long Eaton for a number of the fixtures. The Peterborough results were: Home 26/04 v Long Eaton lost 13-17 03/05 v Milton Keynes lost 13-16 24/05 v Sheffield lost 08-21 31/05 v Stoke won 15-14 05/07 v Sheffield lost 14-16 09/08 v Milton Keynes won 20-10 06/09 v Long Eaton won 19-11 13/09 v Stoke won 25-05 Away 10/04 at Long Eaton lost 05-25 21/05 at Milton Keynes lost 08-22 10/07 at Long Eaton won 19-11 27/08 at Milton Keynes lost 09-15 05/09 at Sheffield lost 07-23 03/10 at Sheffield lost 10-20 05/10 at Stoke won 16-14 05/10 at Stoke won 16-14 Note two matches at Stoke on 05/10. These were two matches with same result but with different scorers. Speedway Star gave the heat details in their 1991 coverage. Let me know if you need any further information.

According to the Exeter 1989 Track review, Exeter Juniors also rode in 2 other Junior League matches. These were away at Eastbourne where they lost 09-21 and at Stoke where they also lost 09-21. Neither of these matches were reported in Speedway Star. I suspect they were held on 23 April and 15 April respectively on the dates the main team were at those venues.

  6. To add to Dave Allan's post I can confirm from Speedway Star reports that all of the dates for the NJL (Central) matches are correct with the following exceptions. Long Eaton v Mildenhall was postponed on 26 August, 7 October and 14 October. The match was held on 18 October at Mildenhall. No junior match was held at Long Eaton on 16 September. Stoke v Long Eaton on 22 August was abandoned heat 4 due to rain with score of 14-9. The match was held on 26 September. Speedway Star did not report the result of the Mildenhall v Stoke match

    1983 Central Junior league

    The meeting mentioned at Long Eaton on 23 March was a challenge match. Peterborough also rode at Long Eaton on 17 August in what was described on the race card as a junior challenge match. The score was Long Eaton 8 Peterborough 10. This corresponds with the CJL results grid in the season summary in Speedway Star dated 3 December 1983, so I believe this would be the CJL match. Coventry were due to have ridden at Long Eaton on 10 August, but this match was replaced at 24 hours notice by Leicester as Coventry withdrew from the league to be replaced by Peterborough.
  8. Peterborough Juniors did not race at Long Eaton in 1982 as Long Eaton were not in the AJL that year, only in the CJL a league that Peterborough did not take part in. 16th September 1982 Ipswich v Peterborough (followed Ipswich v Reading) Ipswich: 1. Andy Nightingale, 2. Andy Harris, 3. Roger Dickerson Peterborough: 1. Adrian Hume, 2. David Ashby, 3.

    02/05 Ipswich World Championship British Semi-Final - Smith & Doncaster finished tied on 11 - any run-off or outright winner? Speedway Star 11 May match report states "there was confusion about the winner of the meeting but eventually Smith was given the verdict as he had a faster winning time than Doncaster who also scored 11". There was also a complicated run-off procedure caused by 5 riders finishing on 8 points and resulted in 4 races to decide the 3 riders who qualified to the British Final. 30/09 Exeter South West Open Championship winner: Dean Garton - CONFIRM DATE & WINNER Speedway Star 28 September - Exeter stage their special Speedtrack meeting next Monday with riders competing on grasstrack machinery. No subsequent report of meeting provided. 07/10 Exeter Tony Sanford Memorial 4TT abandoned after heat 3 - CONFIRM DATE & SCORE AT TIME OF ABNDONMENT Speedway Star 19 October - Match report for 7 October "The riders bravely attempted to put on a show in the Tony Sandford Memorial Fours despite constant drizzle which started at 7 pm. But it was to no avail as Colin Cook spun round and crashed spectacularly on the first bend of heat 3 and it didn't take referee Mick Barnes long to call a halt after that." No heat results given and no further details in the Exeter write up in the same issue.

    1951 Queries

    The Birmingham Daily Gazette of 13 August 1951 stated that the challenge match between Long Eaton and Cradley Heath was cancelled due to the heavy rain. It went on to say that Torrential rain flooded Swindon’s track causing the postponement of the Third Division match against Wolverhampton. When I am back home next week, I will check my Long Eaton programmes for before and after the 11th to confirm this date.

    1991 Results Queries

    From Speedway Star Track Reviews the results you have for Peterborough v Milton Keynes and Arena-Essex v Peterborough are correct. The Milton Keynes v Peterborough result on 27/08/1991 was 51-38 not 51-39 Stephen Davies 8, Mark Lyndon 8, Robbie Fuller 6 , Richard Hellsen 6, Kevin Jolly 6, Tim Hunter 4, Gary Tagg 0. The Peterborough v Arena-Essex result on 04/10/1991 was 43-47 not 47-43. The original result was 47-43, but a Speedway Control Board investigation into allegations that Panthers had tracked an ineligible rider against Arena-Essex - Ipswich loanee Craig Hyde - resulted in the Aussie's points being docked from Peterborough's total. Result amended to 43-47. The final for/ against race points totals for the Gold Cup south group taken from a final table in Speedway Star dated 29/06/1991 were as follows: Arena-Essex 441-454 Exeter 492-405 Hackney 418-476 Milton Keynes 445-455 Peterborough 483-408 Rye House 409-490
