Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Devon: Ford Phantoms

About the team

Track was on a play area in St Levans Road, Devonport.

Club Manager: C. Watkins, 16 Cambridge Road, Ford, Plymouth.

Racing took place on a Tuesday night at 7.30pm.

A van was used with loud hailers on top to announce each race.

The team were kicked off their Council owned track by the Council itself in 1952 due to failing to upkeep the track in a reasonable condition, this causing the team to disband.
