RIP Alan Farrell

It with deep regret to announce that Alan Farrell passed away yesterday, at the age of 65, after a lengthy illness.

Alan had a strong involvement with Cycle Speedway which lasted over 40 years, firstly as a member of the Gorton and Tameside clubs and more recently at Astley & Tyldesley. Alan was one of the three club members who built the Gin Pit circuit during the 1990/91 winter and had been the club’s Track Curator since 2010. Alan was also an experienced referee and had been the Northern League’s Treasurer for many years.

Our deepest sympathies and thoughts go to Alan’s family and friends at this difficult time.

Please feel free to send in your condolences for Alan –
