    Birmingham v Edinburgh ko cup

    Silly statement !! why would they want to do that ? No more meetings = no money and it's their jobs !! They were all fired up to overcome the deficit but it just didn't happen. As for RIP there is a lot going on to save the club so let's get behind those efforts .

    Birmingham v Newcastle

    think you will find that there is a good working relationship now after a rocky start. The Commonwealth games if you look at the timetable only involves a few events at the revamped stadium with events spread over the Midlands and none are scheduled for a Wednesday night .
  5. watch the football highlights as better to and get yourself down to Perry Barr for this all important clash

    MSDL 2021

    2021 MSDL The 2021 MIDLANDS + SOUTHERN DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE will consist of three clubs meeting each other home and away twice. Coming to the tapes are the reigning champions Birmingham , who won the title in 2019. Joining them in 2021 will be Eastbourne and Wolverhampton. Each track will also be staging their own second halves as well with Wolverhampton also having a side in the new Premiership Junior League. They are organizing their MSDL side in conjunction with Birmingham . League co-ordinator Laurence Rogers is pleased that the league will be back in a shortened 2021 campaign, “ I was determined that the league would continue . It is a vital part of British Speedway along with the Northern Junior League giving young riders their first taste of league racing and being in a team as a stepping -stone like so many before them into the higher leagues.” “We have unfortunately lost the nomadic teams under new rules which is a great pity but once the pandemic is over and those clubs can continue their search for land for their tracks we can then hopefully welcome them back.” “ A big thank you to Ian Jordan at Eastbourne and Chris Van Straaten at Wolverhampton for ensuring this league can continue by agreeing to enter sides. With an excess of riders wanting to ride for Birmingham we are assisting our West Midlands neighbours with their team building.” “At Birmingham we plan to run a 2nd half every meeting and in addition to the MSDL we have agreed a three club experimental NJL Shield with Redcar and Berwick involving all three cc classes (125, 250 and 500) . We are also involving the Birmingham and Wolverhampton squad members split into 3 groups of 4 riders who will contest 2 Grand Prix type rounds each with the top 8 contesting a Final. We will also have demo races involving 125 and 250cc youngsters“ “Eastbourne also plan other events as do Wolverhampton so there should be plenty of track action for the up and coming riders.” JUNE Weds 9 Birmingham v Wolverhampton A FIXTURE Sat 19 Eastbourne v Birmingham A FIXTURE Mon 21 Wolverhampton v Eastbourne A FIXTURE JULY Sun 4 Eastbourne v Wolverhampton A FIXTURE Weds 21 Birmingham v Wolverhampton B FIXTURE Weds 28 Birmingham v Eastbourne A FIXTURE AUGUST Mon 2 Wolverhampton v Birmingham A FIXTURE Sat 7 Eastbourne v Birmingham B FIXTURE Mon 9 Wolverhampton v Eastbourne B FIXTURE Mon 30 Wolverhampton v Birmingham B FIXTURE SEPT Weds 1 Birmingham v Eastbourne B FIXTURE Sat 4 Eastbourne v Wolverhampton B FIXTURE Dependent on fixture dates Birmingham will stage a MSDL Riders' Final with 8 riders over 8 heats with top 2 averaged riders from the 3 clubs and 2 wild cards.

    Edinburgh v Birmingham Fri Sept 10 Birmingham v Edinburgh Weds Sept 29
  14. BIRMINGHAM co-owner Peter Mason wants to see a crowd at the same level as the Leicester and Kent meetings when Plymouth visit Perry Barr on Wednesday (7.30). In a big night for the club they welcome legendary three-time World Champion Jason Crump with the Gladiators and former Brummies number one Bjarne Pedersen. Mason has revealed how last week’s attendance against Berwick was 200 down on the previous numbers – something which he puts down to Albion and Blues playing at home that night. He said: “To sustain the season we need to get back to the level we enjoyed against Leicester and Kent. If we had those crowd numbers every week there would be no concerns. “It’s important for everyone to come along and get right behind us, we are all digging deep and doing our very best as a club. “We want to ensure this club has a bright future in the city and it’s down to the fans to enable us to make that happen.” Mason is excited by the prospect of Crump and Pedersen visiting Perry Barr. “Jason in particular is a legend of the sport and always will be,” he said. “It’s great to see him back racing and I notice he’s been scoring some good points recently after his bad injury earlier in the season. “I’m expecting a really good, competitive meeting and once again there will be the opportunity for fans to visit the pits and get autographs and selfies. “We’re also offering the chance to watch from the centregreen again and there will be games for the kids. “It’s a great package for fans of all ages and I hope to welcome a big crowd for a big night of racing.” Meanwhile the sides meet in Devon on Tuesday in more Championship action. Brummies are unchanged from the side which went down to defeat at Scunthorpe on Friday. BRUMMIES TEAM: Erik Riss, Valentin Grobauer, James Shanes, Ashley Morris, Chris Harris, Paco Castagna, Jack Thomas.

    Birmingham v Plymouth 25 Aug

    It is a League Cup match with the sides undoubtedly using reserve and youth players in the main and not their full sides . I know Baggies fans who are not bothering to go to watch it . We need positive posts telling people how good a meeting it was last week with the dust problems of the previous week sorted and John Priest getting the track sorted .

  20. BIRMINGHAM owner David Mason has underlined the club’s commitment to get through to the end of the season. Wednesday’s Perry Barr fixture has now changed and will be a Championship clash with Leicester. This means the Knockout Cup tie with Edinburgh will be put back as the club aim to keep up with their league schedule – and they have apologised for any inconvenience to travelling Monarchs fans. They enjoyed their biggest crowd of the season against Kent last Wednesday – but it still wasn’t enough to guarantee the long term future of the club. Said Mason: “We’re desperate to see it right the way through - but I can only echo what I keep saying, we need the supporters to come each and every week. “If they don’t it will spell that dreaded end that we seriously don’t want to happen whilst we’re there especially. “That isn’t a threat either, it’s just the reality of the situation we’re in right now and we wanted to be up front and honest with the supporters. “It really is a week-by-week situation and like I said, we’re desperate to get through it all. “We can’t thank the supporters that turn up week in, week out enough - they are absolutely fantastic, but we just need more of them now. “Birmingham needs speedway and we really want it to be a success. “Last week was a massive step in the right direction - that’s the sort of thing we need every single time we race at Perry Barr though. “The racing was unbelievable, the scoreline was really tight and the atmosphere was the best it’s been for a long time. “We’ve had to move a fixture around here and there and we know Leicester will be our toughest test of the season on Wednesday. “With it being a big Midlands derby though, we’re hopeful of another big crowd and we’re just hoping we can build on last week again all round. “We thank everyone for their co-operation and apologise to any Edinburgh fans who were planning to be here, but we literally are going from week to week.” Mason is also keen to see younger fans enjoying the spectacle of live racing. He added: “The week before we had literally a handful of kids turn up then last week there were nearly 100 there. “That is absolutely fantastic because they are the future of the sport and we need them coming. “I know we keep on about the short term and people might say ‘but they’re not paying any money’ but they have at least one parent or guardian with them and if they enjoy themselves they’ll keep on pestering until they come back again and again and again! “At Birmingham they get to do things that they don’t always get to do at other Speedway tracks and we can’t stress enough how much we value the kids coming through the gates.”

    the 2nd half has 6 official races ...the 125 kids just do demo's not races for points
  22. As it's a Sunday and the e-mails might not be monitored 24/7, 7 days a week then perhaps that's why it's not been answered ??
  23. hope Rob gets a bumper crowd. Get yourself to Brough Park if you have a free Sunday with 30 heats at a bargain price
