A Grand Challenge Match
Anglers v. Motor-Cyclists
Referee: The Father of the Flock'
(Graham Walker ) from the Plough Hotel, Coventry
Two informal clubs, one formed of anglers and the other of racing motor-cyclists, meet this evening. The bagatelle match is the result of a challenge from one side to the other not long ago. There will be an element of ' rag' about it, but it will be preceded by a demonstration given by two experts at the game. The commentaries will be shared by Graham Walker , Tyrell Smith , both famous motor-cycle racers, and David Gretton , who is in charge of Midland outside broadcasts.
