Wally Green Rip

Recommended Posts

Sad news reaches the VSM office that Wally Green died on December 11 following a short illness.

 

Wally was runner-up to Freddie Williams in the 1950 World Final (his one and only big night appearance) at Wembley, scoring 13 points.

 

He rode for England and is regarded among the all-time greats of West Ham.

 

Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Very sad news indeed. Wally Green was a great post-war favourite of mine. I remember him well as a team member in 1947 and 1948 for Eastbourne and Hastings initially, then of course the epic years in West Ham's colours.

 

Yet another of the sport's all-time greats has passed over.

 

RIP Wally Green.

Yes, very sad news indeed.

 

I got to know Wally quite well over the last few years. He was a great bloke and we had some good chats about his riding days.

 

Sincere condolences to all his family.
