Teenager Parkinson-Blackburn handed 14-day ban after wishing to reduce Championship commitment

Solihull Editorial 6th Jun, 2017   0

SPEEDWAY: BIRMINGHAM Brummies have been informed by the British Speedway Promoters’ Association that a period of inactivity has been placed on Jack Parkinson-Blackburn of 14 days.

The issue has been discussed by members of the management committee who feel this is the appropriate punishment for Parkinson-Blackburn who is deemed to have withheld his services for SGB Championship side Sheffield on Friday (June 2).

It means the Brummies No.1 is not permitted to ride in Wednesday’s home clash against Eastbourne at Perry Barr and will also miss next week’s trips to Kent and the Isle of Wight.

The 16-year-old will be available for selection from Friday (June 16) meaning he is in line to return to the Brummies side at home to Lakeside on Wednesday (June 21).




Birmingham Brummies Speedway will be making no further comment on the matter.
