COVENTRY BEES 40  CRADLEY HEATHENS 49

SUPER skipper Adam Roynon produced a stunning final ride to secure maximum points for Cradley from their 49-40 win at Coventry.

The Motor Market Heathens had already wrapped up victory in the penultimate race, courtesy of a fifth heat win of the afternoon from teenage sensation Drew Kemp.

But with local rivals Birmingham having meetings in hand on Cradley, Will Pottinger’s side knew how invaluable the extra away point could prove to be.

CRADLEY HEATHENS  68  BUXTON HITMEN 22

CRADLEY’s class of 2018 romped to the club’s biggest win in almost four years with a 68-22 demolition of Buxton.
The Motor Market Heathens were always major favourites for the clash with the visitors severely depleted through injury. And the hosts were dominant from start to finish as they returned to the top of their National Trophy group.  Heathens got their night off to the perfect start, opening with four, 5-1 maximums.  In fact they only failed to claim a race winner in one single heat, when Buxton skipper Tom Woolley took the chequered flag in Heat Seven.  [Details]

BUXTON HITMEN 32 CRADLEY HEATHENS 57

CRADLEY revived their National Trophy hopes by securing maximum points from their 57-32 win at Buxton.
The victory moved the Motor Market Heathens back level with group leaders Coventry as they bounced back well from Monday’s defeat at the hands of the Bees. Despite only being with four of their own riders, the Heathens took advantage of an under strength Hitmen side whose problems grew as the meeting progressed.

CRADLEY HEATHENS 40  COVENTRY BEES 49

CRADLEY’S National Trophy hopes are hanging in the balance after their first defeat of the season.  Heathens slipped up 49-40 at the hands of fellow homeless club Coventry at Monmore on a night of tension and drama.  The absence of brilliant teenager Drew Kemp was too much for Heathens to cope with which is clearly a concern going forward as he will also miss the trip to Buxton on Sunday.
New signing Alfie Bowtell did a fine job on debut for the Motor Market Heathens with 12+3 from his six outings – but there were too many weak links in the home side.

HEATHENS RACE ON!

CRADLEY HEATHENS will race for the National Trophy next year.
The nomadic club have entered the competition for the first time to ensure the world famous name survives into a ninth season since their relaunch.  All home meetings will be raced at Wolverhampton’s Monmore Green Stadium after making the decision not to take Birmingham up on the offer to race at Perry Barr.  Manager Will Pottinger has already pledged his commitment to stay in charge of the team and will be looking to use a settled squad of riders.
It means Heathens won’t be in the National League - but fans will have the chance to follow their team and there is also the prospect of the prestigious Golden Hammer individual continuing. [Read More]

CLUB HISTORY 2017 REVIEW 
Sponsored once again by team partners Motor Market and Dudley Stroke Association the Heathens competed in the National League. Racing meetings at Monmore Green and Perry Barr. The team looked good on paper and their first match against Kings Lynn at Perry Barr seemed to show their potential with a 61-29 win. However the Young Stars withdrew from the league and the score expunged from the table!
