SPEEDWAY - Cradley Heathens searching for new home in order to relaunch club

Solihull Editorial 27th Jan, 2023 Updated: 27th Jan, 2023   0

CRADLEY Heathens speedway team are searching for a new home along the M42/M5 corridor in an attempt to relaunch the club.

The Heathens previously operated out of Dudley Wood Stadium from 1947 until 1995 until the land was sold by the owners to developers.

Cradley briefly shared a track with Wolverhampton and Birmingham from 2010 until 2019 before that venture became non-viable.

Speedway authorities no longer allow teams to share tracks which means Cradley are searching for a new base and hope to identify a suitable location along the M42/M5 corridor.

Heathens would require an existing sports club with plenty of room to install a speedway track or to rent a plot of farm land with reasonable access in order to successfully relocate.

Cradley have the finances in place to complete the move as soon as they are able to identify a suitable location.

If anyone is able to help Cradley in their search for a new home contact Paul Tromans at: [email protected] or Geoff Collins at: [email protected]

Prior to ceasing operations in 2019, Cradley were twice Speedway champions in 1981 and 1983 and won the Knockout Cup on eight separate occasions between 1979 and 1989.
