1963 Gerry and the Pacemakers - Southern Brighton Road Relay
The death (3 Jan 2020) of singer Gerry Marsden stirred the memory of the author of this website.
Back in Oct 1963, with Captain Gerry North leading Belgrave's talented squad, we had our own 'Gerry and the Pacemakers.' The fervour with which club members supported their road relay team, following the race in a coach, had to be experienced to be believed. The author spent the previous evening painting this banner on a 'borrowed' family bedsheet. Good job the Bels won!
