Dream Team : Ken Morgan
I was taken to Somerton Park in 1965 to see speedway at the age of 7 and
have supported the Wasps ever since, but during the wilderness years was
tempted to Swindon !
Amazing, it was a revelation for a Newport Wasps fan to have a rider in the
team you knew would beat the opposite number one home and away.
I remember him blasting round Swindon in 1975 head below handle bars down
the straights. Awesome !
He was able to pop out the gate and beat anybody on his night.
His blasts from the back at home and away are inspiring, leads from the front.
Not Australian ! I remember the golden helmet clashes and one memorable one where he blasted past Ole Olsen at Somerton Park! Sadly no longer with us.
There's a pattern here..another Aussie, truly a rider worth the admission money alone, defies belief in his riding at times..a spectacle
The first great at newport...
