Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Scotland - Strathclyde: Shieldhall Stars

About the team

Track was at Fifty Pitches, Glasgow.

Raced from 1948 - 1951.

Facts.

Sam Fraser, who raced in 1949, was a leg trailer.

Bill Ritchie was probably Scotland's outstanding rider in 1949, and one of the greatest in Britain. Scored so many maximums in 1949 that it was suggested that he take out the copyright for them! A very good cartoonist away from the track.
