Wimbledon v Middlesbrough 1947 (Vintage Programme)

Condition: Has some wear. Small tear on back page, (please see picture). Still surprisingly well-preserved at 66 years old.

This programme features a Daily Mail National Trophy match which the Dons won convincingly, 77-31. At 66 years old, you might expect some wear! One staple is missing ant there is a tear on the back cover, (please see picture). It records the scores of riders such as Cyril Brine, Norman Parker and Mike Erskine and the results are written in pencil. There is a photo of the Daily Mail trophy inside and some interesting snippets about the Dons’ riders in ‘Ronnie Greene’s Diary’. This will be a nice addition to someone’s vintage collection.

Bristol v New Cross 1953 (Vintage Programme)

Condition: Quite good for half a century old. The staple is rusty and the pages are not attached but it is not creased and the scores have been neatly completed in pencil.

This is the programme for a classic Coronation Cup match which ended in a remarkable draw, 41½ - 41½. The New Cross team included a young Olle Nygren who scored 11 pints from his four rides. The back page features a team picture of the 1953 Bulldogs.

The match was from Bristol’s Knowle Stadium days where the length of the small oval was 290 yards and the track record at the time was 60 seconds, held by Dick Bradley.

The best column inside is Bob Hatsell’s ‘Follow Me around’, which has snippets of gossip from other tracks in the league.

England v Australia at Wimbledon 1952 (Vintage Programme)

Condition: Very good. Results not filled in. Staples intact. No creasing. Quite remarkable, as David Coleman would have said!

This is in very fine condition, particularly when you note that it is 61 years old. It’s a 16-page magazine-programme with articles by the Chairman of the Control Board, Vernon Brook, by Charles Eade of the Sunday Dispatch, by Ronnie Greene (the Wimbledon manager) and Fred Mockford (the England manager). There are pictures of all the riders and a review of British press involvement with the sport. Riders taking part included Tommy Price, Cyril Brine, Jack Biggs, Jack Young (16 points) and Ronnie Moore (an 18-point maximum).

Harringay v Wimbledon 1953 (Vintage Programme)

Some programmes from this iconic venue should be in everyone’s collection. This was a Coronation Cup match between the Racers and Wimbledon on April 17, 1953, which Harringay won 45-39. Riders included Split Waterman, Ron How, Barry Briggs, Ronnie Moore and Jack Biggs. The results are neatly filled in and the programme is in good condition for a 60 year-old publication. Back page photos include the presentation of the Middlesex Cup to Jeff Lloyd and Stan Clark receiving treatment from the physiotherapist.

New Cross v Rest of London 1951 (Vintage Programme)

£5.25

Condition: Very good. At 52 years old, it’s in remarkable shape! The staple is intact and has some rust. Scores neatly filled in.

Here’s a chance to own a little piece of speedway history from one of the sport’s iconic tracks, the Old Kent Road ‘Frying Pan’. This challenge match, which the Rangers lost 39-45, (it was over 14 heats!) featured such greats as Aub Lawson, Cyril Brine and Tommy Price. The programme is worth owning for Freddie Mockford’s column alone. How many team managers today would (or even could) quote Shakespeare in their programme notes?

The match is New Cross’s opening meeting for the 1951 season.

Wimbledon: World Championship QR 1953 (Vintage Programme)

Condition: Very good at 60 years old. Results neatly filled in but there is a little doodling in the margins. Please see picture.

Here is a record of the Sunday Dispatch World Championship Qualifying Round held at Plough Lane on Monday, August 17, 1953. Ronnie Moore was the winner with 14 points from his five rides, closely followed by Olle Nygren on 13 and Harringay’s Jeff Lloyd on 12. A young Barry Briggs scored zero and the only other riders to reach double figures were Wembley’s Brian Crutcher and Wimbledon’s Geoff Mardon. To the victor went a cheque for 50 guineas.
