BRUMMIES TARGET HAT-TRICK AT HOME

Tuesday June 04, 2019
BIRMINGHAM co-owner David Mason reckons it could be one of the meetings of the year when they host pre-season favourites Sheffield on Wednesday (7.30).

The Edwards Plumbing Brummies are targeting a third straight success at Perry Barr following impressive home wins over Eastbourne and Edinburgh in recent weeks.
And despite being tipped as one of the fancied sides this year, Sheffield have lost all six of their fixtures on the road so far.
The steel city side are led by one of the most popular riders in the modern era of the Brummies in 2016 British Champion Danny King and also include former British Under-21 Champ Kyle Howarth alongside teenage sensation Drew Kemp and new signing Josh MacDonald.
Birmingham operate rider replacement for Zach Wajtknecht, who is taking the break from the sport, and hand a debut to Finnish international Tero Aarnio.
Said Mason: “I’m really looking forward to this fixture and for me it could be one of the meetings of the season.
“The races between Adam Ellis and Danny King could be worth the admission money alone, but like ourselves Sheffield have got some battlers and some entertainers right throughout their side too.
“They were tipped strongly at the start of the season for a reason and they’ve got a solid looking side on paper.
“But we’re in form on track right now at home and this could be a cracker.
“I think everyone will be like me and will be so encouraged by what we’ve seen from the boys over the past two home meetings.
“Eastbourne and Edinburgh are no slouches at this level and to win so comfortably over both of them is full credit to the team.
“If we could get another win on Wednesday that would prove to everyone that we’re tough opposition in this league and I’m hoping there’s plenty of people on the terraces to witness what should be a brilliant night of Speedway.”
The team pits will be open for supporters to get up close to the riders and their machines between 6.30 and 6.50 while recent recruit Nathan Stoneman will be available for autographs and pictures in the lower grandstand bar between 6.40 and 6.50.
Following an agreement between the two clubs, 2019 Sheffield Season Ticket Holders will be admitted for just £10 on Wednesday upon production of their season ticket.
BIRMINGHAM: Adam Ellis, James Shanes, Zach Wajtknecht R/R, Ashley Morris, Tero Aarnio, Paco Castagna, Nathan Stoneman.
SHEFFIELD: Danny King, Drew Kemp, Ty Proctor, Broc Nicol, Kyle Howarth, Zaine Kennedy, Josh MacDonald.
