Another point, my memory is not toooo good. Refresh me on the colours of the jersey, of the Cricklewood broadway. club !
I have done a coloured replica of the Squire Cup at Rochester Casino in 1951, of the Rochester United skaters, but not Denis Hill !
Also it would be a good point if someone could come up with replica`s of all the clubs, of that era !
Thank you, in advance !
( Rochester United colours changed in that era, from black jerseys with two white hoops / to maroon jersey, with black / yellow hoops )

This may have been the race that I saw. Dennis Hill won by out skating from the start, to skate hard around our rink, then come up through the back markers, to take up a position behind Peter Wimble, who was leading at that point, to win the race. A fantastic piece of skating !
