Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Essex: Stapleford Stars(1950s)

About the team

Track was in Stapleford Abbotts, close to Tysea Hill.

Team was started after Fyfield Falcons asked the two Kemp's, together with their friends, to ride in a meeting at the local fete. The offer was accepted, and the Stapleford boys took the top three placings. They then formed their own team, with many of the riders becoming stars in their own right..
