Sad news indeed. A rider who returned to the sport after a serious injury threatened to finish his career.

This sad news concerns Jimmy Beaton Senior, father of Bobby, Jim and the late George Beaton.

A true legend. RIP Jimmy.

Thanks for that...I did wonder.

Sad news indeed mate , at Glasgow we have much to be thankful to Jimmy for , would we still be in existence without Jimmy Beaton - probably not . RIP Jimmy  your legacy will live on everytime a Glasgow rider takes to the track .

We jokingly call the back straight terrace , where we watch from , the Charlie Monk stand . I cant think of a more fitting tribute than Glasgow to name the grandstand to honour the memory of Jimmy Beaton . Officially naming it the Jimmy Beaton stand would serve as a lasting thanks for all he did for the club .

James Beaton Snr very much enjoyed his speedway and did a great deal keeping his team in business, often accompanied sons Bobby & Jim when they rode at Hull.  RIP....
