CRADLEY HEATHENS 43 BIRMINGHAM BRUMMIES 43

CRADLEY skipper Tom Perry could not hide his disappointment despite salvaging a 43-43 draw from their crunch clash with Birmingham at Monmore Green.  The Motor Market Heathens looked set to have their play-off hopes dashed when they trailed by 10 points after nine races.  A number of costly mistakes and thrown away points left Will Pottinger’s side on the back foot before they rallied to pull level with three races remaining.  But they were unable to complete what would have been a remarkable comeback, with Perry and Danny Ayres not quite able to overhaul maximum man Liam Carr in a tense heat 15 decider.  [Details]
 

CRADLEY HEATHENS 61- ISLE OF WIGHT WARRIORS 29

NEW signing Richard Hall enjoyed a dream debut as Cradley demolished the Isle of Wight 61-29 at Perry Barr on Wednesday.
Hall, a recent replacement for the injured Dan Greenwood, scored a 12-point maximum on his first appearance in Motor Market Heathens colours as the six-man home side brushed aside the challenge of the Warriors to move back into the National League’s top four.

KENT KINGS 56 CRADLEY HEATHENS 34

CRADLEY team manager Will Pottinger branded their 56-34 defeat at Kent "unacceptable" - and is delaying his journey home to assess all possible options.  Already having to use rider replacement for outgoing injured star Dan Greenwood, the Motor Market Heathens then had to find a last minute guest reserve for Tyler Govier who was unable to get out of last minute work commitments.  [Details]
 

CRADLEY HEATHENS 54 STOKE POTTERS 35

TEAM boss Will Pottinger revealed Dan Greenwood would undergo further medical assessment after his fall in Cradley’s 54-35 victory over Stoke Potters. The Motor Market Heathens number three was left suffering pain in the same left shoulder that contains metal work from an old collarbone break.  The awkward fall happened on turn four of heat 12 with the red lights already on for a previous incident. “It is a possible shoulder or collarbone injury,” said Pottinger. “We hope Dan is not too badly injured and just have to wait to see what the damage is."

Now fully sponsored by local car dealers Motor Market and the same management company of Nigel Pearson, Chris Van Straaten and Gary Patchett with Will Pottinger managing the team things were looking good.
