Profile...

Malcolm had his first bike, a Cotton 250cc when he was 12 years old and began motorcross racing all over the Midlands, having to lie about his age to be able to compete. He began his speedway racing career at the age of 16 at Doncaster in 1969 in Division 2 and was snapped up by Birmingham in 1971 where he stayed for two years.
He was signed by Cradley late in 1973 having his debut on 2nd August away at Ipswich and became a regular Heathen from 24th August. Malcolm scored 8 points from each of his 2 matches away at Wolves then away at Leicester, these were to be his best scores for the Heathens. He finished his first season with an average of 4.31 from 14 matches.
Malcolm was kept on at Dudley Wood for 1974, 8 points plus a bonus against Swindon being his best match on 13th April. The following week at Newport he suffered facial injuries at Newport and missed 2 weeks then after 1 more match he was injured again and missed 3 weeks. He stayed with Cradley until 24th August when he was replaced by Russ Osborne and went to Long Eaton.  He did have one match in 1976 which was probably as a guest rider against Wolves on 8th May, he scored 6 points from 4 rides.
