Dream Team : Becky Partridge

Per Jonsson
Per is one of my all time favourite, a great rider from the gate, he had style and class. Always great to watch Per at Reading. Just watching Per in his races was worth the money spent in getting into a speedway meeting. I had great admiration for Per. Unfortunately his career was cut short to a really horrific accident.

Malcolm Simmons
Malcom was my very first favourite rider, when he used to ride for Wimbledon. He outstood the rest of the riders in the league at the time. ( Well in my opinion anyway.)

Roger Johns
Roger was one of the best captain's that wimbledon ever had. He was always there to help and encourage new up and coming riders. His riding skills were fantastic and he had the class of being able to come from the back and find a riding line up the middle of the two opposite team members and win a race.

Nathan Simpson
Nathan is in my dream team for his determination. Nathan was a good solid scorer. He was one of the best number ones at wimbledon and he could beat any rider in the league. He also supported and encouraged the new up and coming riders. Nathans best season was for the dons in 1989. Nathan always had a great sense of humor and you could be sure of a good laugh with him. Always a rider to give 101%

Todd Wiltshire
Todd is a great rider who ability to whizz out of the starting gate and be the first to the bend was absolutely fantastic, with this it gained him the nickname of whizz kid in my eyes. Todd first came to wimbledon as a reserve and he built his way up to being up with the very best, and even after a very serious injury, becoming a Grand Prix Rider.

Ray Morton
Ray is a fantastic rider who gained many nicknames throughout his time at wimbledon, from being the Peckham Flyer, Peckham Point Piler, Sting Ray, Rip Snortin Ray Morton, and Rip Roaring Ray Morton. Other riders were always be aware that Ray was around and breathing down their necks. The pairing of Nathan Simpson and Ray was always one not to be missed.

Alun Rossiter
Although Alan has not been a wimbledon rider he has always been one of my favourites. Whenever Alun is around you can always be sure of a laugh. Alun has a fantastic sense of humor and that is one thing that is needed in a speedway team. Alun is always good for the back up points, he is one that can often win a meeting for you.
