Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Surrey: Brookwood Bulldogs

About the team

Track was on Sheets Heath, Brookward, Surrey.

Raced early 1950s to 1955.

Team Manager: Mr Hart.


Arthur Martin, who was 14 when he raced, remembered the following in 1989: "As far as I can remember Chobham Rockets and Old Woking Jets started the whole thing off. We heard about them at school and used to go and see them at Coxhill, Chobham. We then started going to Brookwood and managed to get into the Bulldogs team. There was always a big crowd no matter where we went. The crowd would sit up on the sandbanks - there was a bigger following for cycle speedway than either cricket or football. We had such a pride in our bikes - we made them ourselves. We lived in Knaphill and would ride along the canal towpath to get to Brookwood. Then in the evening we would have to ride back in the dark trying to avoid the canal!"
