RIP Derek Close
We are sad to report that one of our former riders, Derek Close, recently passed away.
He was part of the team that became National League Division 2 champions in 1947, and also rode for us the following season. He also rode in the 1952 World Final held at Wembley Stadium.
His son Nigel also rode for us between 1976 and 1978.
We send our condolences to all Derek’s family and friends at this sad time.
