According to the Brummies website it was 

COVENTRY: ...Luke Crang, Joe Thompson.

Be interesting to see what CMA's Crang and Thomson attained in their illustrious Bees careers. :rolleyes:

Crang rode for the NL side and Joe T was a mascot I believe. The match is Vs "Coventry select" no mention of bees :t:

Want to pedantic what was Richard Lawson doing in a "Brummies past and present" side at Wolverhampton?

Admittedly Luke didn't rider for the Bees but he did ride for Coventry. The Storm that is.

Joe was a Coventry asset but a little too young to ride in any league when Brandon was open

Luke Crang had 3 years with the Coventry NDL, so can claim to have been a Coventry rider.

But Joe Thompson wasn't a Coventry asset or rider.   Coventry's last season was 2016.  The licence was frozen in Feb 2017 (although the NDL team at Leicester in 2018 used the Coventry name).   However Joe Thompson didn't turn 16 until April 2020, long after Coventry' demise.

Why anyone would want to make an issue of this is beyond me! So what if Joe Thompson (or Lewis Kerr) never rode for Coventry? This wasn't to have been any kind of official fixture - just a challenge match, and as Coventry haven't raced for the last 6 years there is bound to be a declining number of their former riders still available.

Surely the objective was to put out a team which would have been competitive and would have had a genuine chance of winning - so if it had included a couple of guests, so what?
