Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Sport Starts Here -

This year is the 50th an­niver­sary of speed­way com­ing to Can­ter­bury and a re­u­nion din­ner has been ar­ranged to mark the oc­ca­sion. Speed­way started at the now de­mol­ished Kingsmead Sta­dium on May 18, 1968, when Can­ter­bury Cru­saders hosted Belle Vue Babes. The re­u­nion event will be held at the cur­rent home of Kent speed­way, Cen­tral Park Sta­dium, Sit­ting­bourne, on May 19, from 7pm. All ex-riders who wore the fa­mous crossed swords race-jacket of the two-time Di­vi­sion 2/Na­tional League cham­pi­ons, the Can­ter­bury Cru­saders, be­tween 1968 and 1987, have been in­vited. Ex-riders are asked to con­tact or­gan­iser Dick Jarvis (07538 112606) to let him know they’re com­ing and ad­mis­sion is free for ex-riders and their ‘plus ones’. There will be mem­o­ra­bilia on dis­play and plenty of mem­o­ries to share among riders and Cru­saders fans alike. Tick­ets are £15, which in­cludes a buf­fet.
