Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Yorkshire South: Sheffield Stars

About the team

Track was in Cookson Park, Sheffield.

Club Colours: Orange shirts.

Raced in the Sheffield League.

Club was formed by the amalgamation of Rowlinson, Parkwood & Stradbroke in 1984, this being a new club that rebranded itself as "Sheffield Stars" in 2000 as a tribute to the first club in Sheffield that won national honours in 1972.

The club also adopted the original colours of orange and white, but stylised the "star" logo and added black to the livery.

To all intents and purposes, the two clubs were separated by about ten years, with the stars of 2011 being a completely different club to the stars of forty years earlier.
