I'm looking for details of the 1987 National Junior League - Central Section. I know Peterborough Skoda Cubs and Boston Piranhas both had teams and matches consisted of 7 heats. Any more information would be invaluable. 

I know there are a whole bunch of heat results on the Speedway Researcher website.....I just checked a few, Long Eaton isn't there but I know Boston, Mildy are out there, didn't check the rest.

As far as 1987 is concerned, ten National League clubs are represented on Researcher. Only one, Glasgow/Workington, carries any junior details. Only five clubs have files for 1986, again only the Glasgow file carries any junior details.

Good luck to anyone hunting down any junior results, I have files I've been working on for ten years plus that I'm still trying to locate results and heat details for.

Have you tried looking for result details in the old 'Speedway Surveys' annuals ?

I know Maurice was had some strange ideas but I do recollect some of the year books, at least, had Junior/Reserve League/Division 2 results in.

I think he did they '87 one retrospectively so it contained more information than some of the others.

The information I'm really after pre-dates the Speedway Surveys yearbooks,. In most cases it's heat details I want and the yearbooks didn't publish them. Having had a look at what I've got earlier, it's really ony the 1982 Anglia & Central, the 1984 Scottish and the 1985 Anglia junior leagues I'm missing basic results for.
