        First Cup Final in almost ten years and there was as much action off the track as on it

 

        Kingsway try to delay meeting in the hope that Chic Mackie will turn up – sadly Chic had a asthma attack and didn’t ride

 

        Kingsway also disappointed that steward Jimmy Cobain was also a no show  - how did they know he would not allow Ronnie Young to ride with his wrist in plaster

 

        Stand in steward John Speirs rules that Ronnie can ride “ as long as his jersey covers it at all times” – John incidentally was involved in the crash that saw Ronnie break his wrist

 

        Early races are split but first Hawks and then Kingsway gain narrow leads

 

        Heats 10 –13 see Hawks build up a four point lead, with Dick and Ronnie gaining a valuable 4-2 from the outside grids

 

        Mike and Ronnie gain a great 5-1 in heat 15 putting Hawks in the driving seat

 

        Dick and Nicky comfortably take 3-3 in next heat to put Hawks 8 up with two races to go

 

        Kingsway need a 5-1 from outside gates in heat 17 but strangely both their riders try to take Ronnie out at first bend , letting Moosh build up a huge lead – the Cup is going to Hampden !!

 

        MOM – Dick – could probably have got a maximum but settled for the points that won us the Cup
