Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Wiltshire: Highworth Wolves

About the team

Track was in Welcome Home Field, Highworth(now Glebe Place).

Club Manager: H.E. Tremblin, The Caravan, Westrop Farm, Highworth.

Roger Wise(Bristol Speedway rider) financially helped the Wolves, supplying their new rising Starting Gates. The opposition often found this starting procedure rather confusing, as they were used to the pull across starting gate.

Facts.

Their first match was on 11th August 1949 when they defeated Stratton CSC.

In 1949, during the interval of their first two home matches, the club received £29 in their collection boxes, this on top of the profit of selling programmes at 6d each.
