Mike Keen and Geoff Bouchard great club servants, with riders such as Munday, Hitch, Holloway, David Ashby, etc., backbone of the club, and half were local lads. Hitchy my favourite with his famous fourth bend divebombs.

Barry Duke still a familiar sight around the town with his ponytail, always has time for a chat. Still lives in Penhill.

Didn't Roger ride for the Rangers?

Good to hear that Barry is still around and still with his fine head of hair!

Yes. The Roger in question is, of course, Bob, brother of Cyril and Bert. He only rode for New Cross for a short time in 1952&3. His two brothers rode for the Rangers for much longer.

Two Swindon riders from the 1940s pioneer era whose results I used to follow were Reg Lambourine and Mick Mitchell.
