Dream Team : Harry Ward

LoramMillen

I was first taken to speedway when I was about three years old. I remember going to New Cross by underground from our home in West Ham. I can't put my finger on it but even at an early age I knew it was all about one thing...Entertainment.

All those years later I still go as keen as ever to around eighty meetings a year...and I still manage to be entertained...most of the time

So with this in mind here's my team of entertainers

Sverre Harrfieldt
The first rider I can remember riding around Custom House seemingly without ever shutting off. But for his severe injuries I have no doubt he would have been World Champion

Kelvin Mullarkey
The slowest rider I have ever seen. Kelvin had his opponents pulling their hair out at Rye House as he blocked their every move. Never adverse to controversy and a real team man. The reason behind Rye's Championship winning season

Kelly Moran
I did see Peter Craven ride but I remember very little of him. Having seen photos of him I feel the nearest you can get to his bendy body style was Jellyman. If only he had taken the sport seriously he would have been world champion many times over. I had the priviledge to meet him in Brighton last year and his massive personality still lives up to his massive natural talent.

Mark Loram
A real delight to see him miss the gate. The style and effort combines to make him one of the most attractive riders of the current era, not to mention our most recent world champ.

John Cook
Sorry Eastbourne I don't mean your current promoter. The cowboy like Kelly Moran had one of the most spectacular styles I have ever seen. Never say die, never give up. He was the supreme entertainer. How great it was to watch that Ipswich team that contained John, Billy Sanders and Dennis Sigalos.

Christer Lofqvist
The second man I saw around Custom House at full throttle. The difference being Christer bounced of off everthing. Riders, the fence, everything. Again looked like Peter Craven with his small body wrapped around the bike with his chin touching the front wheel. A sad loss at such a young age.

Jack Millen
Mr controversy. The wild man was coming through like it or not. One of the few riders I ever saw who tried to bully Mr Mullarkey. Crazy Jack would be at reserve but would also be captain. After all, any trouble and there was no better man to have in your corner.

So many riders would be waiting in the wings should injury strike, among them Simon Wigg, Per Jonsson and Billy Sanders to name a few. They may not have won the league but my God you would have got your monies worth.
