Winner 2013 - Tony Sandford Memorial meeting @ Plymouth


Anderson starting racing junior speedway when aged thirteen, at the Undera Park raceway. He subsequently began practicing on the full-size 500cc machines two years later, before racing them properly at sixteen years-of-age.

Jake signed for Birmingham at the start of 2010 and was loaned to the Dudley Heathens in the National League, following his spell here in 2009 with a Young Australian touring team, where he scored 14 +2 against Britain under-21's at Rye House, he had recently finished fourth in the Victorian Championship back in Australia. On 31st January 2009, he had ridden in the Australian Under-21 Final at Gosford, New South Wales, in a meeting won by Darcy Ward
The Aussie joined Birmingham on a three point average because his great granddad was Scottish.  Astonishingly Jake joined five other Aussie's in the Brummies side!

Jake doubled up with Dudley in the National League and he had a great season, his away scores were superb but he did struggle around Monmore Green, his away average was almost two points higher than at home. Nevertheless to finish with an average of almost eight was remarkable however with an average like that Dudley found it impossible to fit him into the 2011 squad.
Some of scores were 17+1 from 6 rides at Buxton in April, 16 from 6 rides in October and 13 from 5 rides the following week and 15 from six rides at Scunthorpe



Jake stayed at home in 2011 but came back to join Plymouth in 2012 and was joint top scorer in the Westonapolis on his debut, he finished third in the Final behind fellow Aussies Todd Kurtz and James Holder. He finished with an average of 3.57 from 9 matches.
He was back at Plymouth in 2013
