C.Featherby, 13 Aug '64
Sheffield replaced injured David Crane with their up-and-coming reserve Arnold Haley but were dealt
another blow in heat 2 when Poole's Bill Andrews was excluded for bringing Billy Bales off on the first turn.
Billy took no further part in the meeting and young Arnie was kept busy taking all of his rides.
Alan Jay was the hero of the hour winning three races and dropping a solitary point to Newcastle's Ivan Mauger. Edinburgh's Colin McKee was top scorer for Eddie Glennon's New Zealand select with only Long Eaton's Rim Malskaitis failing to open his account. The remaining visitors were Cradleys Goog Allan, Glasgow's Graham Coombes and Ivan's team-mate Dave Gifford.
Next weeks opposition were Swedish touring team Vargarna who were expected to put up a much sterner test featuring Gote Nordin, Bengt Jansson and Bernt Persson in their septet.
