FORMER title winning captain Tom Perry is back with Birmingham.

The Wolverhampton born racer guided the Brummies to National League success in 2015 and 2016 and proved to be a big hit with the Perry Barr faithful.

And with Jordan Jenkins quitting the club last week, club bosses have moved to bring him back for the final few fixtures of the Championship campaign.

Team manager Laurence Rogers said: “People shouldn’t forget that Tom is a rider who has ridden in our league before and who has also ridden in the top league too.

“He’s a very good all-round motorcyclist and he’d slot into that ‘entertainer’ bracket we’ve mentioned a lot at Birmingham this year.

“He’s also very popular at Birmingham following his previous spells with the club and it was a no brainer to bring him back for the final few meetings of the season when we knew he was available.”

Meanwhile Perry himself is looking forward to his return.

He said: “It feels good to be coming back to Birmingham.

“It’s a place I enjoy riding at and it’s a club who I’ve had some really good times with earlier in my career.

“I’m just looking forward to stretching my legs and testing myself at this level again after a couple of years away.

“Hopefully I can come in and score some points for Birmingham and show myself that I can still do a job in that league.”

Perry will make his debut in Wednesday’s home fixture against Berwick (7.30) – who have signed former Grand Prix talent Tomas H Jonasson and who have booked ex-Birmingham favourite Ben Barker as a guest.

Former British Youth Champion Leon Flint, who broke onto the scene with the Brummies in last year’s National League, skippers the visitors from reserve.
