  1. 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

  10. BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES WIN AT REDCAR TIES UP TOP OF TABLE WITH BIRMINHAM BULLS ,… TITLE TO BE DECIDED AS PLAY OFF FINAL The two Birmingham MDL sides will meet in a play off final at the Alan Grahame Memorial meeting against Cradley after the SUPPORTERS CLUB BUFFALOES took victory at Redcar 21-15 to finish level in the table with the DUCTAIR BULLS. The final fixture at Redcar saw the Buffaloes without the majority of their squad for various reasons and they ended up with a 3 man team when Jack Shimelt was unavailable due to work commitments. The trio included 15 year old Ashton Vale making his MDL debut and the Kent Royals recruit notched up 11 points defeated only by Redcar debutant Senna Summers, son of former rider Aaron Summers. Bulls skipper 16 year old Billy Budd guested for the Buffaloes with 9+2 with Summers spoiling his maximum chances in heat 6. But amazingly this was the Redcar’s first competitive speedway rides and the youngster looks to be a good prospect. Jake Breeze , a newcomer to speedway this year and recruited through the club’s tie up with the Formula Grass Association (FGA) , got better with each ride getting his confidence back after a bad crash on the grass . He claimed his first points in heat 6 and is another one for the future. REDCAR GALLAGER CUBS 15 ( Senna Summers 3r 7, Katie Gordon 3r 3+1, Edward Davison 3r 3+1, Dan McTeer 3r 2) BIRMINGHAM SUPPORTERS CLUB BUFFALOES 21 ( Ashton Vale 4r 11, Billy Budd 4r 9+2, Jake Breeze 4r 1+1, Jack Shimelt R/R) TABLE : M W D L F A PTS =1.

  11. 2 guests ?? Billy Budd was a guest. Ashton Vale is eligible for MDL and not in any other side ? Jake Breeze has been riding for Buffaloes . This fixture could have been run when Birmingham were at Redcar a few weeks before but there was a NJL match and on that occasion the Buffaloes had a full side available . This was a one off when the squad were not able to travel
  12. There will be a one off play off final ... there will be a toss of a coin to decide who is the "home " team in red and blue and the "away" team in white and yellow and which side of the pits they get!!

  16. BULLS END THEIR MDL FIXTURES IN STYLE ---WITH 3 UNBEATEN RIDERS IN 26-10 WIN. Putting themselves into top position aiming to retain their title the Birmingham DUCTAIR Bulls recorded a resounding 26-10 over Redcar Bear Cubs . With three unbeaten riders the Bulls dominated the meeting. Bulls young skipper Billy Budd got his paid maximum despite touching the tapes in heat 2 and came off 15 metres to work his way through to link with Eli Meadows for a 5-1. Kai Ward was in top form with a full maximum from his 3 rides . Meadows had two paid wins on top of his heat 2 race victory. 15 year old Midlander Joe Crewe notched 2 points improving each time he rides for Birmingham. For the Bear Cubs Edward Davison battled with 4 hard earned points whilst Lee Harrison was top scorer with 5 points. With Birmingham Buffaloes having one meeting left away at Redcar the 2023 MDL title is still up for grabs.

  17. BIRMINGHAM bosses have made the early decision to rearrange Wednesday’s (August 2) scheduled home fixture against Plymouth.The Curtis Sport Brummies were due to meet the Gladiators in the Cab Direct Championship at Perry Barr.But with the track already sodden and several forecasts showing thundery showers from Tuesday night and throughout the whole of Wednesday, bosses have made the decision early to minimise inconvenience for all.The two clubs have swiftly agreed a restaging date and the two will now meet at Perry Barr on Wednesday, September 6.It means the Curtis Sport Brummies will begin a hectic schedule at home to Redcar on Wednesday, August 9 (7.30) - that will be their first of eight meetings in the space of five weeks.
  18. MDL BATTLE OF THE BIRMINGHAM SIDES SEE BULLS DRAW LEVEL AT TOP OF TBLE WITH BUFFALOES The Birmingham DUCTAIR Bulls drew level at the top of the MIDLAND DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE with the Birmingham SUPPORTERS CLUB Buffaloes after a hard fought battle that saw the Bulls triumph 19-17. The Buffaloes young skipper Max James had a lucky escape in heat 3 when crashing by the starting gate with his bike clearing the fence but he was thankfully all ok. This was the 16 year old’s first dropped points of the season losing his perfect 12 point average. The resultant 5-1 to the Bulls in the end was vital . the Buffaloes bounced back from that 5-1 loss to level the scores with 5-1 of their own in 4 from Eli Meadows and Tim Colley. They then posted a 4-2 in heat 5 to restore a two point lead at 16-14. With the result all resting on the final race the Bulls skipper Billy Budd made a dream start followed by his team mate Kai Ward to record his maiden MDL race win with the 5-1 giving his dide victory. There was a MDL debut in Buffaloes colours for young grass track rider Jake Breeze coming up against another Formula Grass Track rider Joe Crewe in the Bulls side as Birmingham give chances to new up and coming riders. This also is now extended along with the 125cc heats to a new electric bike group pre-meeting with exhibitions on REVVI bikes which the fans are loving watching. Birmingham SUPPORTERS CLUB Buffaloes 17 ( Max James 3r 6, Eli Meadows 3r 6, Tim Colley 3r 4+2, Jake Breeze 3r 1) Birmingham DUCTAIR Bulls 19 ( Kai Ward 4r 10+1, Billy Budd 4r 7+1, Joe Crewe 4r 2+1) TABLE: M W D L F A PTS 1.

  22. in reply to above ... Jodie has all the forms completed and is almost ready to submit just awaiting the person handling it all for her to check over everything .... so the charity will be up and running once this has been done and accepted by the Charities' Commission .
  23. ANNOUNCEMENT | Due to the lack of riders we have regrettably had to postpone Danny’s Day 2 until later in the season. We feel as though the meeting deserves a top class line-up and the date of June 11 has meant too many riders are now unavailable. We want to thank the Glasgow Tigers Speedway promotion for their understanding and we are working hard to sort a new date later in the season to re-stage the event. All of those people who have already bought tickets can be assured they will be valid for the new date. Thanks to everyone for their understanding.
