Dream Team : Jeff Dooley
I have followed Sheffield Tigers for well over 30 years. As a lad we used to go from Sheffield to Halifax on the public serice bus for about 25 pence. We now run the Hanley Collectables website, full of speedway memorabillia. The team I have picked is full of entertainers.
|Shawn Moran||Chris Morton|
Just a great team man and all round good guy. I remember the times he spent crossed legged in the bar talking to the kids.
Could have been the best in the world. What a pair Shawn and Kelly made together. A true champion but just enjoyed life too much.
1976 World Champion. Deserved more, if only he could gate. But boy could he team ride with Morton.
One of the best team riders ever seen. Always a pleasure to talk with. (read his book please).
Well they called him the showman at Sheffield and he did just that. You just never knew what you would get from him next.
Guess you couldn't pair him with Roman, but one of the most popular modern Sheffield riders. Just seemed to be able to pull that extra yard when needed.
Kyle would kill me if I didn't pick him. (Well we do sponsor him) Neil Machin tells me he is the most popular rider at Sheffield today. I feel he is very much out of the Shawn Moran mould with the kids. Also has a never say die attude to his racing. But still a long way to go. Just happy to be involved with a rider with so much talent.
