Dream Team : Jim Liddell

I have been a Glasgow supporter since about 1964. I first saw speedway at White City in Glasgow and have followed them through good and bad since.

Charlie Monk
Charlie was the master of White City at Glasgow. Reputations meant nothing to him and he frequently beat the best round this track. During his time at Glasgow he carried the team, top scoring at most tracks. Never one for talking to the fans on race night, but his riding soon made up for this.

Jim MacMillan
Jimmy Mac was a rider who suddenly burst onto the scene at Glasgow White City. One week he was a second string trying to keep his team place and suddenly he was a heat leader top scoring where ever he went. The highlight of his career must have been his reserve spot at the world final at Wembley. A good team man.

Kenny McKinna
Kenny returned to Glasgow when Shawfield opened its gates to speedway and soon established himself as the master around the track. It was sad he fell foul of the promotion and moved on to Middlesborough and then Edinburgh. He was sadly missed at Glasgow.

Steve Lawson
Steve was another of these riders who carried the whole team for a while, top scoring where ever he went. A good gater and when in the lead not easily passed. Retired a bit early in my opinion.

Robert Nagy
Robbie was yet another rider who burst onto the scene at Glasgow (Shawfield), after a match with the Hungarian touring team. Had no fear of any track, large or small. I remember one weekend seeing him ride at Rye House and Exeter, where he top scored at both tracks. Sadly missed when he left for pastures new.

David Walsh
Walshie was a rider Glasgow let go as a teenager, but who returned as a star to show them what they had missed. A brilliant gater and when ahead rarely passed. A good team man but another who retired a bit early...this time caused by a track injury at Hull.

Dave Gifford
Dave was a good team man and an excellent gater. He could anticipate most referees at the starting gate. Always ready to give a helping hand to team mates and a good laugh when in company.
