Maido took over in 1972. I can't remember exactly when he left, but it may have been when we went NL. I know he was still there in 1984.

i think it was when the golfer took over, surname of Brown.

i used to go chat to Maido in the speedway office during my lunch break when i worked in Copper Mill Lane around '84/5 time

Sadly I never rated Maido as a top line team manager. I know the purse strings were tied but we persevered with Jancarz for at least 2 seasons too many, and often bought riders who were on the way down (Simmo, Kennett, Titman) rather than exciting world class talent.

Maido could work wonders with a bag of sawdust!

Chalfont sponsored the team in 1983, Peter Brown became team manager in 1985
