  Stevie 'Shorty'  Gilroy

5 years experience which has seen him rise from arch-enemy to partner with Alan Smith. Combines riding with club secreatary role and design / printing of programmes. Took rostrum place in Redbraes Open and top averaged rider for Young Scotland with 19 points from 5 rides. Would list Birmingham as fav. away track and Heckmondwike as least favourite. Best meeting was season 2000 opener at Bury. A steady second string to have in the side.
  Alan 'Wee Al'  Mackie

Role: A Team Captain
Wee Al has came on leaps and bounds over the last 2 seasons with the highlight being - victory in both Northern Under 19 events in 2000. These coupled with a very impressive league campaign seen Alan take Scotia rider of the year - the first of many awards! In season 2001 Alan will Captain the A Team and with his cool attitude and his great advice for youngsters this makes him the ideal choice for the armband.
  Chic 'Chico'  Mackie
Age: 63
Role: B Team Captain
Well what can you say about Chic Mackie that hasn't been said before??? At the tender age of 62 (63 in July) he seems to be going on forever and stills shows no signs of stopping. A great B team rider and still very capable in the A team as well. Was winner of Combination Riders Championship last year and this year celebrates his 50 year in Cycle Speedway. Chico takes over the B Team captaincy this season - hopefully it won't be his last cos he keeps morale up as well as doing a great track job!!!!

Still under the legal drinking age Newse has developed a great skill in bike riding. A joy watch when cornering in front and a very hard guy to pass. His ability far surpasses his years and he has formed a rock solid partnership with Alan Mackie. Rostrum places at most age events through 1997, 1998 and 1999 although the Redbraes Open that he craves hasn't yet come his way. Scored a very impressive maximum at Bury in British Cup 2000.
