Crayford Kestrels

Anyone used to go to Crayford speedway back in the 80's?

i used to go every week. Names included Barry Thomas, Laurie Etheridge, Mick Pither, Mark Bosley amongst others. Also remember visitors including Dave Jessop etc... I used to collect all the discarded perspex from the riders helmets (no rude comments please).

I remember, sadly, buying a cassette recording of the meeting between Crayford and Rye House. All you heard was the noise of the bikes on both sides of the tape. Great listening!

    When I was at school I used to work on the turnstiles at Crayford stadium back in the very late 60s. :-) Seem to remember I lasted about 2 weeks.
