Archive Results

Following the launch of the revamped League site we would like to draw your attention to the availability of a large number of historical race results.

The late Cliff Franks and Chris Holloway had long wanted to collate and publish as full a set of League results as possible. A suitable scanner was purchased to deal with the various sizes of paper that the results had been produced on. Over the years these have been collected together, sorted, scanned and converted to PDF's.

You can now look back at the archive that currently exists by using the results menu tab and browsing the various decades and races.

Further research is ongoing to seek out missing race result details. Archive copies of local newspapers are being looked at in reference libraries as/when time allows in order to piece together the fuller picture.

Should your club have records from League races for the early years then please let us know and provide us with a copy. You may only have your clubs own performers and/or the team position/scores for a single race but even those can, in time, be added to other information that may be gathered to build the bigger picture.

If you have an interest in the history of the league and have time available to go into your local library/archives we would welcome help in gathering missing information. Please contact the League Secretary.
