BIRMINGHAM Brummies will be backed by Graham Drury once again for the club’s return in 2015.

Graham will be joined by wife Denise to work with track staff and other administrative tasks and the duo will take a lot of pressure off club owner Tony Mole.

Both are well known to Brummies supporters having been at the club since the relaunch season of 2007 until their departure in April last year.

Now they are back as part of an exciting new era for the club in the National League.

“I am now safe in the knowledge that everything will be done in a good and proper manner.” said Mole.

“The admin involved in speedway is time consuming, both in dealing with the BSPA and SCB and I like everything to be done correctly.

“Graham and Denise will take pressure away from me and they are working within a budget which I believe is sustainable if we achieve the crowd levels we need.”

Drury has also confirmed Tom Perry has been installed as skipper of the Brummies following his move from rivals Cradley Heath.

Perry has five years of National League experience under his belt, four with Cradley, and has been released by the Heathens to join the Brummies on loan.

The club have also confirmed this week they will be backed by a strong following a hugely successful sponsors and season ticket holders night at Perry Barr.

Commercial boss Joe McLaughlin was kept busy handling season ticket applications – and there are now only four heat sponsorships remaining for the new campaign.

Mole added: “We are extremely encouraged by the response from supporters and although it’s been hard on the sponsorship side because of the damage done by the previous promotion, things are looking up.

“Birmingham Speedway has a rich heritage and from last July it looked as though it was no more, but we are about to rise from the ashes in an exciting Third Division. I’m looking forward to it.”
