CLUB NEWS: Aces 70s Legend Jim Sullivan returns to watch Exeter

An Exeter Aces legend from the 1970s and 80s was at Cofton Road to watch the Exeter v Newport fixture.

Jim Sullivan is pictured below (centre) with Dave Murphy and Andy Collett, two current Aces, who were team-mates from that era.

Jim (minus his trademark beard) made his first return to Exeter since emigrating to New Zealand 20 years ago and was a most welcome spectator at the Aces circuit this weekend.

Sullivan was a big name on the National circuit in the 1970’s, featuring in National and Regional finals and he commanded the respect of many top riders, in that era, such as Roger Ellis, Derek Garnett, John Watchman, Geoff Patman and Colin Wheeler to name just a few.
