REDCAR 15 BIRMINGHAM BUFFALOES 21 ...

Recommended Posts

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)

The two Birmingham MDL sides will meet in  a play off final at the Alan Grahame Memorial meeting against Cradley....

Do they play two meetings to settle the final, swapping changing rooms at half time?

Seriously....... Thank you for bringing this to our notice. I, honestly didn't know the MDL was running. It's good to see some new names coming into the sport (even from the FGA).

Senna Summers was seriously impressive, and thanks for confirming his parentage.

FGA or any other of the grasstrack organisations up and down the country still have a host of young men ( & women) wanting to have a go at speedway. Problem is the powers that be seem not to want them, so involvement in the MDL is vital to them and clubs should be pushing for more teams not less.

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!!

Some years ago, I was involved helping a rider in the MDL and SDL. I was astonished at the indifference shown by promoters to training riders (but everyone knows that speedway riders come from Poland and Denmark, I suppose). It is good that Laurence Rgers at least is trying to do something.

Interesting….two guests and R/R in a junior 4 rider team, just like the pro leagues!

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
