Wimbledon Memories

Recommended Posts

Was a crying shame when the Dons failed to find a way into the 1990 British League. Not only did we lose Todd to Reading but also Russell Lanning (who had done an amazing job as Promotor over the previous 2 seasons) quit Speedway in disgust. 
 

Apparently we were lining up Martin Dugard, Andy Galvin and other fantastic up and coming riders...

Chunky, returning to the photo, is the gentleman sitting on the left Vic Gooden, our old Team Manager?

Any chance the Poster can cut-and-paste the names of those in the photo please? That's apart from dear old Bert Harkins!

Apart from Bert, Ronnie Moore and Ivan Mauger I see Trevor Hedge

Yep. I don't think gustix would remember Pete Wigley riding for us. He should know Dingle...

What a lovely, lovely fella. I have a photo of Ken and my dad (and the rest of the Wimbledon team) with Ronnie and Jill at the 1959/60 London Speedway Supporters Club Dart League presentation.

My long time friend Mike Patrick. IMO the greatest speedway photographer of them all. And he always captioned his photos!!! Sheer dedicated professional.
