COVENTRY supporters from the 1970s and 80s are in for a treat in the latest issue of THE BUZZ magazine.
For the seventh edition, we have an in-depth feature interview with club stalwart Kevin Hawkins, who played a somewhat unexpected role in both 1978 and 1979 British League victories!
Hawkins discusses the circumstances of his arrival at Brandon, life with the Bees through to the mid-80s, and life after leaving Coventry in a four-page feature.
Also, with the magazine dated October 19, we go back exactly 35 years to 1985 and a momentous final league match of the season against Sheffield where USA star Rick Miller literally had no margin for error!
The 2003 season was another which came down to a dramatic conclusion, although not exactly for the right reasons, and that campaign is reviewed in detail as part of The Elite Years.
We also have the usual features including the latest from the campaign, an update of future plans from the Nuneaton Speedway Supporters’ Club, another Brandon quiz – and a look back on the two occasions when Coventry staged the World Under-21 Final.
