Dream Team : Jim Salt
Cradley fan - first meeting in 1968. Now living in Northern Ireland, so thank heavens for Sky! Looking forward, with fingers crossed, that we will see the Heathens back on track in the not too distant future.
No apologies for picking my first hero. When Heathens were a struggling outfit in the early '70's Bernie was a shining light. Still remember how close he was to glory at Wembley in 1972.

My favourite Heathen of the 80's, pure excitement on a bike.
Simply a legend. Top rider, top bloke.
Sandor was always a popular visitor to Dudley Wood and he proved a great signing when he rode for Cradley in the twilight of his career.
I was a Plough Lane regular in the 1980's and I remember Mad Dog riding brilliantly for Middlesbrough against Wimbledon one night. I always followed his career after that.
Have to have Big Al in, for his contribution to the Heathen cause over the years. The time the rest of the riders presented him with the KO Cup remains one of the greatest memories.
A shock selection at Number 7, but "Tiger" Terry just gets it over my current favourite the much underrated Rune Holta. Terry was great entertainment value when in the Red and Yellow.

have to agree with Jim on his selection of Sandor Levai. Being a Belle Vue regular starting in the
sixties I had the great fortune of watching some real tryers and Sandor was allways a real crowd
favourite. It was a sad loss when Sandor had to move on but he still performed wherever he rode.
A wonderful ambassodor for the sport."
