Reading Tilehurst 1971 or 1972?
 
 
Reading Tilehurst  Can anyone add any names? John
Phil Masters says: Richard May, Dag Lovaas, Mick Bell, Anders Michanek, Bernie Leigh, Geoff Curtis. On bike Geoff Mudge, I think the chap also on the bike is team manager Dick Bailey. The year could be either
1971 or 1972 as they used the same team both years. 
John says:
Yes I agree.  Dag, Anders and Geoff Curtis were Newcastle assets in 1970.  I believe Newcastle's Division 1 license was transferred to Reading in 1971.
