History of Newcastle
Cycle Speedway


Newcastle 1989
After a fraught close season, Newcastle had to overcome a series of retirements. Unfortunately, there were not enough quality riders left to justify entering the League. The decision was made to sit out the season and get back to grass roots and rebuild for 1990.
That was not quite the end as Michael and Gavin Parr, John Wilson, Jason Keith and Terry Kirkup signed to ride for the Hull club.
