BRUMMIES BATTLE IN TOUGH CONDITIONS

Saturday September 28, 2019
BIRMINGHAM boss Laurence Rogers was proud of his side’s battling efforts in their final fixture of the season.

The Edwards Plumbing Brummies went down 37-23 at Eastbourne on Saturday in a fixture cut short after ten races due to severe rain.
And despite defeat, Rogers was satisfied with his riders.
“Obviously to lose was disappointing but they really were difficult conditions,” Rogers said.
“At this stage of the year we just needed to get to a result and full credit to all 14 riders for getting to Heat 10 in the rain.
“The boys battled hard and like I say I can’t knock any of them for giving it their all in tricky conditions.
“Jason (Garrity) was on good form again and that was made even more impressive by the fact he’d never ridden at Eastbourne before.
“There were also heat wins for Adam (Ellis) and Paco (Castagna) while Nick (Agertoft) and Tobias (Thomsen) contributed hard fought second places with Tom (Perry) adding two hard fought third places.
“It has been difficult and challenging at times this season but there are also plenty of positives we can build on in 2020.
“We’ve really enjoyed the entertainment served up by the riders and we’ll definitely be looking at building another team to entertain the supporters again next season.”
The Brummies host their 2019 End of Season Awards night at Perry Barr Stadium on Friday, October 4 (7pm doors, 8pm start).
Tickets are £12 each, including a buffet, and can be reserved now by e-mailing peter@denma.demon.co.uk with the subject BIRMINGHAM SPEEDWAY AWARDS NIGHT and stating whether you would like your ticket to be sent directly to you or collected on the door.
