  1. Many people thought different ... Rowe had a few impressive rides and there was several close battles and races to the line . I suppose we all see things differently and had Joe not had so much bad luck the scores in the end would have been even closer .As it was it almost went down to the wire between the Brummies and the Wolves Select with the sides fairly evenly balanced
  2. Parade was held up due to queues at the gate with a late flurry of fans arriving late . The reserve races were there to give the lads a ride and not sit there not getting any track action and with Joe Lawlor's problems and withdrawal both got rides in the meeting . Can't see how their points could count in the meeting as they were not in any particular side and having them there proved worthwhile in the end The idea of an information sheet is a good idea but was overlooked . Seemingly didn't float your boat P T Preece but we had a lot of positive comments that they liked it ..and there were some good races...James Shanes pass in that one being a classic one
  3. I know it has nothing to do with the great news that Mitch is back on a bike tonight but to clarify regards the Heathens SELECT ....Bowtell and Andrews ( can't get time off work) ; Bickley + Hampshire ( both pulled out in last few days) ; Edwards (riding for Eastbourne v Cov) ; Jenkins, Perks; Roynon (injured) .
  4. BIRMINGHAM host a special three-team tournament in their final home fixture of the season at Perry Barr on Wednesday (7.30).The Edwards Plumbing Brummies renew rivalries in the ‘West Midlands Threes’ as they take on Heathens and Wolves Select sides.There’ll also be a special moment following the conclusion of the meeting when injured skipper Mitchell Davey makes an emotional return to the track - just five months after sustaining horrific, serious injuries which included a punctured lung as well as a broken shoulder blade, vertebrae and ribs.“I’m both excited and nervous if I’m being honest,” Davey said.“It’s going to be a test to see how everything feels more than anything but it’s took a lot of rest and a lot of patience just to get to this point and while I didn’t think it would be the case at one point, being able to get some laps in at the back end of this season is great going forward.“It’s going to be good to get back and see all the supporters again and it should also be a good meeting for everyone to watch as well as it’s a really good line-up they’ve managed to put together.”

    Buxton v Birmingham 14th October

    meeting is OFF... re-staging next Sunday 21st
  6. NINE names have now been confirmed for Birmingham’s ‘Rivalries Renewed’ season finale at Perry Barr on Wednesday, October 17 (7.30). The three team, four-man tournament will see the Edwards Plumbing Brummies take on Wolves and Heathens Select sides on an exciting night of racing in the second city. Fans’ favourites James Shanes and Leon Flint will ride for Birmingham – the latter declaring himself fit for the finale after escaping with no broken bones from two heavy crashes at Mildenhall last weekend. The Brummies quartet is completed by rising star Anders Rowe as well as Dan Gilkes – a 3.00 unattached rider who will be hot property in the third tier next season. Wolves’ Select side includes Birmingham’s two-time title winning captain Tom Perry, former British Under-19 Champion Max Clegg and Dan Greenwood who had a brief spell with the Brummies earlier this season. Meanwhile the Heathens Select includes teenage wonderkids Drew Kemp and Kyle Bickley who both rode for Cradley during their 2018 National Trophy campaign. Birmingham co-promoter David Mason said: “We’re delighted that the line-up is looking so strong and competitive with just a few of the reserve positions left to fill. “It’s going to be a great meeting with a different format to round off the year and hopefully it’s going to appeal to all supporters across the Midlands because the winter is very long without speedway.” TEAMS SO FAR: BIRMINGHAM: James Shanes, Leon Flint, Anders Rowe, Dan Gilkes. WOLVES SELECT: Max Clegg, Tom Perry, Dan Greenwood, TBC. HEATHENS SELECT: Drew Kemp, Kyle Bickley, TBC, TBC.

  9. ‪Don’t miss the final one of the season...‬ ‪BIRMINGHAM will renew Midlands rivalries as part of their season finale at Perry Barr later this month. The Edwards Plumbing Brummies will take on Wolves and Heathens select sides in a special three-team, four-man tournament on Wednesday, October 17 (7.30). Team boss Laurence Rogers said: "The West Midlands has got a great history and tradition in this sport and the rivalries in this part of the country are as fierce as anywhere else. "Bragging rights between these three sets of supporters has always been present at many different levels of British Speedway and it will be great to get all three clubs represented on one track on one night. "Obviously Wolves’ league campaign was brought to an early end as they missed out on the play-offs and the Heathens only competed in the National Trophy this season. "So their supporters, as well as our Perry Barr regulars, will be itching for one final dose of speedway before the winter comes along. "We're currently working on the line-ups and will reveal riders for each of the clubs in due course, but the Heathens Select will include riders who wore their colours this year.” A reminder that the Brummies head to Mildenhall this Sunday (October 7, 3pm) before travelling to Buxton seven days later (Sunday, October 14, 3pm) as they complete their compulsory outstanding Travel Plus National League fixtures.
