Dream Team : Gary Mitchell
I went to my first meeting at Cleveland Park in 1968 aged 11, Teesside "Teessiders" v Crayford Highwaymen, I was hooked. Throughout the mid 70s and early 80s I hardly missed a match home or away. Due to overseas work commitments I attended very few meetings between 85 and 96 but managed to get to the penultimate meeting at Cleveland Park. I do go to the new Redcar "BEARS" meetings but Cleveland Park will always be the home of Middlesbrough speedway. I hope you enjoy this selection.
Only one team manager Tony Coupland - has he mastered the tac sub rule yet?
Others that could easily have made this team Bruce Forrester, lightning starter and great captain. Roger Mills, Allan Brown, Terry Lee, Alan Emerson, Geoff Pusey, Gary Havelock, Nig Close, Malc Corradine, Roger Wright and does anyone remember Bob Watts?
