The National Speedway Museum

A programme from 1960 - the meeting was billed as the Northern Cup between the Liverpool Pirates and the Sheffield Tigers.

I understand that the name Pirates was only used for this one year then sadly ceased to exist, this time it would seem not because of speedway politics but from a weak team that lead to continual losses and a continuing drop in spectator numbers.

This was the last time speedway would be seen in Liverpool

Again for interest the programme is 6d and at to days prices that would be 46p
