Cradley Heathens fixture list revealed

By Russell Youll | Speedway | Published:

Cradley Heathens have revealed their 2018 fixture list – with just EIGHT dates for the diary.

Cradley Heathens' fixtures have been revealed.

The team, which this year will only be racing in the National Trophy, will host their home dates at Monmore Green Stadium, in Wolverhampton, while the search for their own track continues.

Director Nigel Pearson said: “Whilst there’s a lot of excitement about the team we have assembled, the reality of the situation strikes when you see the fixture list and only eight matches.

“The only way we could return to full league racing is by finally securing a site of our own, or some financial support can be given to ensure we don’t lose money by staging meetings at Birmingham.

“That’s the reality, unfortunately I – and I know this is the view of Chris Van Straaten and Gary Patchett – am not prepared to lose any more money of my own. Enough is enough and I would defy anyone to say anything different.

“That said, we have a super team with some exciting young talent and I’m really looking forward to seeing them in Heathens colours.

“Gary Patchett and our team manager Will Pottinger have done a great job.”
