Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Midlands West: Hilltop Tigers

About the team

Track was initially on Ropers Hill, now the site of Greenham School.

Team amalgamated with Moore Lane Monarchs, persuading Kingstanding Racers to also join the Monarchs, thus becoming the Kingstanding Monarchs.

Much of this amalgamation was at the hands of Gordon Jones, who was a school-friend of a certain Harold Smith, who was 'persuaded' to become Team Manager of the Kingstanding Monarchs.
