RE the football photo of Dudley Wood Olympic in The Bugle (February 20 and April 24 editions). On the front row in the middle is my late husband, Jack Smith.

Other names I can remember are: Back row - 3rd left: Warren Hall, 4th left: Kevan Jones, 2nd from end: John Davies.

They were all good mates together, Warren, Kevan, Jack and myself used to follow the speedway around Cornwall and Devon in our summer holidays, probably 1963-65. We had a green mini van at the time, they were all mad about the speedway and had good holidays at the same time.

Sadly Jack and Warren are no longer with is.

M.R Smith,

91 Dudley Wood Road,


Also Graham Jones of Netherton wrote to tell us that on the front row, far left, is Cedric Welding and on the far right is his twin brother Tony Welding. He said he played with them for Graingers Lane and then Haden Rangers.
