Product Description

The story of the famous Wembley Speedway team

From 1929 to 1956, the Wembley Lions were the glamour team in British speedway. They won 10 League Championships, the National Trophy four times and the London Cup on nine occasions. Three Wembley riders won the World Championship: Lionel Van Praag, Tommy Price and Freddie Williams.

Part one looks at the Lions’ fortunes from 1929 to 1939, when the team was launched by Sir Arthur Elvin and managed by the legendary Johnnie Hoskins and then Alec Jackson.

Part two looks at the 1946 to 1956 season by season.

The third part of the book recalls the Lions’ return to Wembley in 1970 for a two year spell under the direction of Trevor Redmond and Bernard Cottrell.

The book includes a wide range of photos, profiles of the riders who rode for the Lions and comprehensive statistical records.
