    MIDLAND DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE 2024

    MDL BIRMINGHAM DUCTAIR BULLS NARROW THE GAP AT THE TOP OF THE TABLE TO ONE POINT WITH 20-15 AT LEICESTER The 2024 MDL title race becomes more interesting with the Birmingham DUCTAIR Bulls gaining a win to move into 2nd spot behind the Birmingham Buffaloes. The two sides meet at Perry Barr on Monday night with a Bulls win moving them to top spot so it should be some clash! The Lion Cubs were hit by the unavailability of No. 1 Kai Ward due to work commitments with Rider Replacement utilised to cover his rides. They then lost skipper Jamie Etherington after he crashed out in heat 3 taking a rider replacement ride and was withdrawn from the clash. Heat 1 saw Joe Crewe get into an awkward slide on a wet patch coming out of bend 2 and despite his efforts to steer his machine the referee excluded him after the race for crossing the white line with both wheels! The home took the lead in heat 2 6-5 before the Bulls edged ahead 9-8 and extended that to 10-13 before the ever improving Harrison Rogers took heat 5 ahead of Bailey Fellows , having his first meeting of the season ending with 8 points . His cousin Jacob Fellows also notched 8 after getting a late call up to ride for Leicester in the main meeting scoring 2+1. The Crewe brothers battled hard and did their bit towards their team’s win in a unique family feel with two cousins and two brothers ! For the home side Harley Driscoll-Freeman gained more important track time . Leicester Lion Cubs15 ( Harrison Rogers 4r 9 .

    MDL 2024 MDL SEASON STARTS WITH SHARED HONOURS The 2024 Midland Development League opening fixture at Leicester saw the honours shared as the Lion Cubs drew 18 apiece with the Birmingham Buffaloes.

Debutant rookie Harrison Rogers rode steadily with three second places to finish with 7 points. For the Birmingham SUPPORTERS CLUB Buffaloes skipper Eli Meadows lost his maximum chances in his last ride when Sonny Springer defeated him in heat 5. Debutant Max Broadhurst got better with every ride and secured his first race win in his final ride to finish on 6 . Another first time Will Boraston had three third places whilst Jake Breeze was beset by carburettor problems. Leicester Lion Cubs 18 ( Sonny Springer 4r 9 ; Harrison Rogers 4r 7, Jamie Etherington 3r 2+1) Birmingham SUPPORTERS CLUB Buffaloes 18 ( Eli Meadows 3r 8; Max Broadhurst 3r 6, Will Boraston 3r 3, Jake Breeze 3r 1+1)

    forecast changing all the time ..... now shows a few morning showers which saves early watering .
  13. MIDLAND DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE 2024 The MDL 2024 will be contested by three clubs .. Birmingham DUCTAIR Bulls, Birmingham SUPPORTERS CLUB Buffaloes and the Leicester Cubs. It was hoped that a few other clubs would contest the league but unfortunately they are not committing to it despite interest from them. Some may be offering some challenge second halves later in the season so the three teams in the MDL should get additional fixtures. Last year the two Birmingham sides dominated the MDL finishing joint top but a planned play off was lost to the weather and the two sides are having a decider early season at Perry Barr to claim bragging rights for the new campaign! Birmingham will run MDL strength second halves all season with individuals and challenges for their expanding squads with several newcomers joining the ranks at Perry Barr with recruits from the local grass track scene where the club have a tie up with the Formula Grass Association . Additionally the club have a new recruit from moto cross joining their ranks having been tempted to give speedway a try. The teams will meet home and away twice. Under a change to the rules clubs can use a National League rider up to a 5 point average but will give chances to young riders aiming to put themselves in the shop window for the NL. League co-ordinator Laurence Rogers is looking forward to giving as many young riders important track time as possible, “ It would have been good to have had a few more clubs joining our ranks but some have decided to just do their own thing. The league is a stepping stone for young riders and the more track time they get the better and thank you to Leicester for coming on board to ensure this league survived . There are lots of young riders out there and at Birmingham we do what we can to develop them and give them the opportunity to ride in a team. We will be running two teams again with separate squads and continue the friendly rivalry we have between the Bulls and the Buffaloes and look forward to the clashes with the Leicester Cubs.” MDL FIXTURES 2024 MDL FIXTURES 2024 MON 1 APRIL FGA INDIVIDUAL MON 15 APRIL BIRMINGHAM BULLS V LEICESTER CUBS A FIXTURE SUN 21 APRIL LEICESTER CUBS V BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES A FIXTURE SUN 12 MAY LEICESTER CUBSV BIRMINGHAM BULLS A FIXTURE MON 13 MAY BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES V BIRMINGHAM BULLS A FIXTURE SUN 19 MAY LEICESTER CUBS V BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES B FIXTURE MON 27 MAY BIRMINGHAM BULLS V BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES A FIXTURE MON 3 JUNE BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES V LEICESTER CUBS A FIXTURE SUN 23 JUNE LEICESTER CUBS V BIRMINGHAM BULLS B FIXTURE MON 24 JUNE BIRMINGHAM BULLS V BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES B FIXTURE MON 8 JULY BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES V BIRMINGHAM BULLS B FIXTURE MON 22 JULY BIRMINGHAM BULLS V LEICESTER CUBS B FIXTURE MON 12 AUG BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES V LEICESTER CUBS B FIXTURE
