Anglia/ Central Junior leagues 1978-1985

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

While the majority of us are confined to our homes for the unforeseeable future. i thought i would take the opportunity to try and update and complete my Peterborough Junior and central league fixtures, including venues scores etc from 1978-1985.

I have tried in the past to update these lists but it has proved quite difficult as results were more than often not published. Also some junior matches didnt always coincide with the corresponding first team fixture.

I am missing quite a few Peterborough junior away fixture dates, results and track details, so if anyone could help, then i would be very grateful.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

 1978 Away: Boston, Mildenhall, Rye House.    1979 Away: Cradley, Crayford, Kings Lynn, Nottingham, Oxford,Reading.   1980 Away: Cradley,Ipswich, Milton Keynes, Oxford,Rye House, Swindon .  1982 Away: Ipswich, Long Eaton, Mildenhall, Milton Keynes.   1983 Away: Birmingham, Stoke, Swindon (  Peterborough juniors took over from Coventry half way through the season and completed their fixtures)   1985 Away: Kings Lynn, Long Eaton,Mildenhall, Stoke.    1986 Away:Boston, Mildenhall.

Good afternoon. I just wanted to say a big thank you for the information you sent me regarding Junior league fixtures. I am now able to fill in a few more blanks. With reference to 1985. Mildenhall rode 3 times at Peterborough that particular season. 29/03 was a challenge match score Pet 39 Mild 38. 07/06 was a League match which was rained off. It was then rerun on 14/06 but was abandoned after heat 4 with the score at Pet 15 Mild 9. The meeting was then scheduled to be run on 25/10 but Mildenhall riders refused to ride because of bad track conditions. Hope that helps. Regards Barry
