    2019 NL Season

    I think the other team is Eastbourne rather than Kent. I would totally welcome a move up to the championship, the past four seasons in the NL have been enjoyable but its important the club continues to move forward after what happened in 2014. The new managment have been fantastic, Lee Kilby has done a great job as commercial manager and despite a very frustrating season on track for the Brummies in 2018, off track has been positive. Fingers crossed we get it confirmed soon.

    AGM November 2018

    Hopefully the Brummies have moved up, the other club im not sure about. Can only think it could be Eastbourne or Mildenhall, Kent ruled it out before the AGM

    I will be very disapointed if the Brummies dont move up.

    Doug Ellis RIP

    So sad to hear the passing of Doug Ellis today, Obviously well known as the chairman of the football club I support for many years but he has previously been a co-promotor at Birmingham Speedway untill 1960. He was invited to the re-opening of the Brummies in 2007 and spoke in support of the club in its battle to get full planning permission some while back. Rest in Peace Doug

    Mildenhall v Birmingham

    Thats not a Birmingham side, its a Birmingham select. Its madness that a fixture can be run in any league with FOUR guests and rider replacement for one side, personally I couldn't care less if its rained off tomorrow. Just want this season done with and hopefully look forward to 2019. This season (on the track) has been a disaster with the injuries that have wrecked the side, feel sorry for the Masons. What a baptism of fire in their first year as owners.

    Wouldnt mind a home and away challenge against Wolves run to Premiership level but I doubt they will go for that. Probably an individual with all the top NL boys

    Birmingham v Peterborough ICL

    It was good to see the cycle speedway demonstration at Perry Barr the other night, your only based down the road in Perry Park so its good to forge links with other clubs. I will have to go and watch cycle speedway sometime, never seen other than on wednesday! Its not perfect and as we saw with Garrity withdrawing from the meeting, it means you can only track 1 rider in the nominated heats of 13 and 14. Why couldnt one of the riders that were in Heat 14 also ride in Heat 13 as cover, aslong as their average is lesser than Garrity. I do think the six man teams can work and without doubt we need a change to the current format as there's less and less riders now. It just needs a bit more thought, it shouldn't hinder the progress of young brits which is my worry.

    Birmingham v Peterborough ICL

    I thought the crowd was good, only seen Cradley at home a better attendance. Considering its an extra 3 pound tonight for a challenge match aswell. They will be pleased. Racing I agree wasnt great but again its a challenge. It was good to see Barker back and on on fire, if we do move up would love him back. That Gappmeier looks half decent aswell.

    Birmingham v Peterborough ICL

    I'm still looking forward to this match despite no Masters, I honestly couldnt give two hoots about the Play offs now. Even if we qualify we will have 2 guests and R/R for the semi finals minimum and realistically what chance do we have anyway. So for me tonight is more important because we need to start looking forward to 2019, I think most brummies fans would be in favour of a move up and we all need to turn out because it wont happen if we dont give Peter and David Mason our full support.

    Coventry v Birmingham & Stoke 9-9-18

    I was very disappointed with the track at Leicester yesterday, especially the third and fourth bend. The hole on the third bend contributed to that big crash in Heat 13 with Ayres and Mountain, Ayres did go in a bit hot up the inside but he hit the hole which launched him into Mountain, hopefully both riders will be okay. There was a race when Morley hit that same hole twice in two laps which sent him off towards the fourth bend fence, thankfully on both occasions he rescued it. Then on another lap I though Morley was packing up going round that bend but he was just riding like that to avoid the holes! Everyone says the racing at Leicester is rubbish but they should focus on getting a more smoother and consistent surface to race on first, because how can expect ridings of any level but especially the national league guys to go flat out when the track is like that?

    Mildenhall v Brummies NL Sat 9th Aug

    Tom Bacon has a suspected fracture to his back, so season likely over. Sam Woods a broken arm according to Brummies site . My best wishes to them both.

    Completing Fixtures

    Its crazy that after the summer we have had we are in a situation now, where theres quite a number of fixtures that might not be fitted in before the cut off. I see Stoke v Eastbourne is off and i dont see how that can be fitted in before in before the cut off with Eastbourne a saturday track aswell. Look at Coventry they are having to run double headers, they still haven't arranged Buxton home and away and Mildenhall at home, the cut off is in two weeks!! Every year this happens, why bother with the National Trophy and KOC cup early in season, the bread and butter should be the league and that should be priority. Have the other competitions for after the league fixtures have been completed.

    Using R/R for Walker isnt great but its alot better than R/R for Danyon. Hume is good for 8-10 minimum, I dont see Flint, Laurence, Embleton and Davies scoring that to be honest
