Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Yorkshire South: Stocksbridge CSC

About the team

Club was formed by the unstinting efforts of Robert Mawhood to keep the sport alive in Sheffield during the 1980s.

For many years internal disagreements, retirements and general low morale and bad planning had left the city of Sheffield in danger of losing cycle speedway. But the efforts of Mawhood, who ran Saturday morning sessions at the Stocksbridge Leisure Centre(to the West of the City)and occasionally used the deteriorating Halliwell Crescent track for Manchester League fixtures, this effort securing that cycle speedway remained in Sheffield during these troublesome times.
