Even then, I still recall seeing Jack Biggs, Ron Mountford, Eric Boothroyd, Jim Lightfoot, Jimmy Gooch, Howdy Byford et al racing, though they were probably in the twilight of their careers then - even as a young lad, they seemed quite old at the time! This is a great book, well researched,written, that envokes the spirit of the post-war era, and helps me lend some historical context to those "old timers" I remember. Well illustrated as well.
BEING TOP OF THE GAME.I GREW UP SUPPORTING LONG EATON ARCHERS (WHO LIKE A NUMBER OF CLUBS DONT EXIST ANY MORE).
I ALREADY HAVE THE LONG EATON STORY BY PHIL DALLING SO THIS ENHANCED MY ENJOYMENT.
