Dream Team : Neil Weston

I'm picking my all time Mildenhall side from the Conference League era:

Wayne Broadhurst
Current 'captain fantastic', and although he hasn't been with us long, he has already done more than enough to earn a place in my greatest team. He gets it for his awarness of his team-mates on and off track especially his efforts to help the younger lads and generally his excellent leadership skills. Is a great influence around the club.

Oliver Allen
Rode for us in 1998, and looked back then every bit the fantastic rider he is turning out to be. Piled in some big scores, in a fairly short spell with the club.

Steve Camden
Another with a never give up attitude. Steve was a brilliant find for the club, who was the mainstay of the 2000 side, and battled through illness and injury in 2001, still managing some good scores. A real shame not to see him back in 2002.

Ross Brady
Replaced Olly Allen in 1998, and again looked a terrific prospect, achieving some important progerss in his development as a rider while with Mildenhall, and again another youngster who piled in some big scores.

Geoff Powell
The former captain. Rarely beaten round West Row, not to mention his total dedication in travelling down from Cumbria. A great servant to the club.

Barrie Evans
Brilliant young rider who came straight into a struggling 1999 side, scoring double figures from the off. Played an important part in what should have been a title winning 2000 team, and was one bright spot of a struggling side in 2001, with some high scores plus several memorable match race victories.

Phil Knowles
Had a tough task coming in to replace Leggy as number one, which even he'd admit was a bit too much to take on. Came back, though, lower down the side and impressed with his gritty performances and never say die attitude towards his racing.

Others nearly getting into the team: Shane Colvin, important part of the successful 2000 side, and a huge blow when he left towards the end of that year. Another hugely talented young rider. Dean Garrod, loyal servant to the club had his best years around the time I started watching in 1997-98.
