Dream Team : Steve Watkinson

I've been a speedway fan since I was knee high to a grasshopper! I have supported Poole Pirates for many years now.

WiggLee

Simon Wigg
The green man of the shale! An out and out racer, brilliant to watch and a great loss to the sport. One of a few racers who could compete at top level at grass/shale and longtrack.Thanks "WIGGY".

Jan Andersson
Great servant to the then "Reading Racers". I remember seeing him in a race with Mitch Shirra, Shawn Moran and Hans Nielsen where the lead changed places several times, just for Jan to win it on the line from Mr Nielsen!

Michael Lee
Not the most stylish of riders but boy when he turned up for the Pirates he never disappointed!

Andrew Silver
Always gave 100% when racing. You always knew something was going to happen when the 'Silver Machine' came to the tapes! He had a very extrodinary leg trailling style. I hear he was once stopped by the police skateboarding up the hard-shoulder?

Richard Green
Another one of those riders who was absolutely spectacular at home! Not many riders could tackle the banked County Ground circuit at Exeter but Greeny would miss the start and somehow catch-up and ride that last bend like a jet propelled plane.

Steve Schofield
The pocket rocket! There was always great entertainment when Scoie was on track, at the starting gate you could always know it was Scoie as you could hear him revving the guts outta of his bikes. Yet another great rider on shale, grass and longtrack. The Mitcham Marvel, what a legend!

Bobby Ott
One of those crazy American riders brought over to Belle Vue. I always remember seeing him almost hanging off the bike around the bends looking like he was about to come a guttser and the suddenly become upright. A great uni-cyclist so must have a great center of balance. Bobby '100% entertainment' Ott.
