I have followed speedway for many years and I first caught the bug at Belle Vue. Since then I have supported many teams, depending where I was living at the time. At the present time I regularly follow Buxton, Scunthorpe and Sheffield.

I first met Andy Meredith when I was “having a go” at speedway myself at the Scunthorpe training track. I found him to be an excellent teacher. He gave me very clear instructions which I found easy to understand and follow whilst panicking on my first couple of rides! Under his tuition my confidence grew until I could actually do a slide! That made me very proud!

When Andy started the Andy Meredith Speedway Academy I was very pleased to be able to support him. My main role seems to be the “Tea Lady” but in addition to this I sign on the riders at the beginning of the sessions, do some of the admin and I am quite often the photographer on the day. Jack of all Trades really!
