Birmingham Brummies set to make shock return to the tapes

A REMARKABLE rise from the ashes for the Birmingham Brummies could see the former Elite League side make a return to the track in 2015.

Plans to bring the club back to the tapes had been shelved last month after failing to attract much needed investment.

Several meetings with potential investors failed to generate the finance needed to bring the Perry Barr outfit back to life, which is believed to have been £100,000.

But former club owner Tony Mole has confirmed this week that the Brummies have made an application to enter speedway’s third tier with their traditional yellow and red race jacket colours as a starting point to rebuild the club.

“I am delighted to confirm I have reached agreement with all parties for Birmingham Brummies to submit an application to join the National League next season,” said Mole.

“This is very much the first stage in a rebuilding process and if the team is a success and we get the necessary support from fans then I will be looking to take the club up into a higher level.”

All home meetings will be staged at Perry Barr with Cradley Heath also racing at the Aldridge Road venue on alternate weeks as the Heathens aim to defend their title.

Mole added: “I am pleased to see Cradley Heath survive and they will be the team everyone wants to beat next season.

“They have won the title for the last two seasons and will be going for the hat-trick, but I have two main ambitions myself for 2015 – win the league and beat Cradley!

“We will be building a competitive team and I have a team manager in mind. More announcements will be made in due course, including our opening night details.”
