[01 NOV 98] COVENTRY BEES SPEEDWAY NEWS
Coventry Bees 53 (84 agg)
Ipswich 37 (96 agg)

Coventry Bees recovered their pride as they closed the season with a win in the second leg of the Craven Shield final.

Their convincing 53-37 victory was still not enough to claw back the first leg deficit but it was a magnificent performance.

Skipper Brian Andersen led the way with a six-race maximum as he had in the very first meeting of the season. Guest rider Jimmy Nilsen only dropped a solitary point.

There was a minute’s silence before the meet in memory of Brandon supremo Chalres Ochiltree, who died last week.

Ochiltree ruled the Brandon track for 50 years and was one of the most respected figures in the sport.

Former world champion Ole Olsen paid tribute to the man they called the CO:

"He was very hard, but very fair. His word was always his bond.

"He did so much for speedway and I learned a lot from his ideas of how to promote the sport."

 Coventry: Anderson 16, Jonsson, 5, Nilsen 15, Hancock 11, Tacey 6, Robson 0.
