Profile...

Wilf was a junior rider around the midlands in 1947 to 1949.  He was also a sidecar passenger and amateur boxer.  Surprisingly made the reserve birth for the Brummies in 1950 in Division 1.  He found it tough but did manage to score five points from two rides against Bristol in May.
He returned to the Heathens in 1951 and again in 1952 but struggled to hold a team place.
