Speedway: Tributes paid to Wightlink Warriors stalwart

Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 17:05

TRIBUTES have been paid to the 'voice of speedway' Bryn Williams, who died last week.
The Wightlink Warriors's main announcer was a well-known figure in British speedway, having dedicated decades to the sport he fell in love with in the 1960s.
Williams was part of the backroom team at Smallbrook when the stadium opened for speedway in 1996 but he worked at tracks across the country, including Hackney, Eastbourne and Oxford.
Wightlink Warriors's co-promoter, Barry Bishop, said: "It is very sad news to hear of Bryn's passing.
"He was a man dedicated to speedway and his love of the Isle of Wight and speedway on the Island had no boundaries.
"Bryn travelled each week from Kent to announce for us and during the week supported the club as press officer and he will be greatly missed.
"I am in discussion with other promoters to do something fitting in celebration of Bryn's life and his dedication to speedway and we will announce details for this soon."
