Dream Team : Gazmundini
A Stoke Potters fan since Sun Street, this team though is based from the current Potters home of Loomer Road.
To me he was Stoke Speedway in the 80's, some of his battles with his brother Joe had to be seen to be believed.
Again led the team well when he signed, although his career was coming to an end, he was always worth the entrance fee.
What can you say about 'Crabby', an absolute star, was brilliant to watch on the track, but also on the centre green when he became team manager.
'Bootsy' was an excellent passer, he used to wind it on for two laps, put his wheel in the dirt right by the fence and round the opposition.
He was breathtaking to watch in'87, we followed him all over the country as he tried to make his 1st World Final.
Never a Star but what a character.
Last but by no means Least. Les to me is one of the greatest ever speedway riders, missed the gate more often than not but could he pass, even in his ageing years (sorry Les) when Cradley came to Stoke he was showing Hamill and Hancock the way to do it, absolutley breath taking, Thanks Les.
