Dream Team : Tony Webb

I have supported Wolverhampton for almost 40 years, and have followed their fortunes when I have not been able to attend matches due to RAF commitments ( now retired ).

FundinErmolenko

Sam Ermolenko
One of the nicest guys you will ever meet, always the consumate professional, and ever the one to bounce back time and again after some terrible injuries. Also my darts partner when the Midland Speedway Darts League was up and running.

Peter Ravn
Like Sam, a genuine nice guy. Never reached his full potential, in my opinion. My daughter loved him to bits and has to this day his 1986 Wolves race jacket, signed by him.

Ove Fundin
What can I say that has not already been said? My lasting memory of Ove was a race at Monmore Green in I think 1967, Great Britain vs Sweden, where he chased Barry Briggs for four laps, before passing him on the line, picking up so much grip that his bike stood on its back wheel from the fourth bend to the line! What a race!

Peter Vandenbergh
Another rider from my early days at Monmore. Peter took the time to read an article I had written for a school project and put me right on a few points, but praised my efforts.

Hasse Holmqvist
My first speedway hero as an impressionable youth! Always known at Wolves as "Classy Hasse". Always smiling and quite spectacular on occasion.

Tony Armstrong
Who? You may ask. Tony rode for Crayford in the late 60's and did some second halves at Monmore. Used to give me a lift home after the meetings in his Triumph Herald with his bike on the back. He is now living in Canada and was the National Champion sometime in the seventies.

Antonin Woryna
I first saw Toni Woryna riding for Poland at Monmore in 1967. I am now a very good friend of his son, Mirek, who will be visiting England in July.
