October 1982. Sheffield v Belle Vue Northern Trophy second leg. Ivan at number 1 for the Tigers, beat Louis Carr, Larry Ross and Dave Bargh.  Last match of the season followed by the fireworks.  End to a great season for the Tigers.  

Ray Glover had wanted Mauger to come out of BL retirement, but he ‘coached’ us and then guested for Wayne Brown who’d gone back to NZ, never to return as it turned out.

i was already obsessed from World Of Sport coverage, but the real thing was amazing.  And I got PCs autograph, who was already one of my three favourite riders.

I was at that one, had forgotten most about it, apart from it being against the Aces. I wonder what made Wayne decide to throw it all in. Not that he could tell us now of course :-(

From memory, i believe he initially took a year off to help out with the family business and of course never came back

Wayne Brown was for a while public enemy #1 at Crayford after his clash with Paul Woods at the 1980 NL Riders Championship
