Dream Team : Sean Mclaughlin
I'm a Mildenhall supporter with roots in Manchester so a Tiger and an Ace. I've been going to Mildenhall since 1976 as a nipper and seen good and bad times. Spent many a time at the old Hyde Road to see the Aces as and when we get back up north, Kirky lane was never the same although very grateful to have the team.
Mr Dependable, 6ft and gangly he defied his frame to be one of the National League's top men for years.
Fantastic and gutsy Aussie who would hang off the bike. What he lacked in ability he made up for in effort.
Wonder boy who learnt his trade at Mildenhall and moved into the British league. Came home and was still a second division heat leader of quality. Mel was a
real fan favourite.
Hard as nails, he would open the throttle and go.
Legend of the early years, and a resident of Devon before moving to Suffolk to be Tigers number one for years.
A friend of mine admittedly but had guts in abundance. Late start on shale after a good grass career. Sadly injuries have taken their toll.
Clearly a number one but was past his best when with us, but if he gated he won. A better rider than all of the above and I couldn't leave him out and Dave would forgive the upper six gettin an acolade.
