OBITUARY: Nigel Walsh

Newport Cycle Speedway Club were saddened to hear of the passing of Nigel Walsh, a former club rider of the 70’s, on 21st February at a Newport care home.

Nigel was well known and liked in both the cycle speedway and motor speedway world with his great sense of humour, and sometimes strange antics around the circuits.(he was a star at Newport’s 2 tours of Manchester and East Anglia.)

Walshy, as he was affectionately known was a good team player at Newport and also a top regional darts player and football referee.
Newport CSC would like to thank him for bringing so many great memories both on and off the track, and send their condolences to his family.

RIP Nigel
