  CRADLEY boss Will Pottinger was delighted with his side's National Trophy opener as they eventually wrapped up an emphatic 59-29 home win over Stoke.  The Motor Market Heathens came out on top in a dramatic encounter which saw a series of crashes, spills and machinery problems.  But the hosts recovered from an opening race 5-1 deficit, and finished super strongly bagging four maximums of their own before being awarded a 5-0 in the final race.
A bumper crowd turned out in glorious conditions and Pottinger paid tribute to the supporters.  He said: "It was great to see such a good turnout and fingers crossed we can maintain that good level of support for the boys throughout the year. "Naturally we're more than happy to get off to a winning start. "Four of the lads got double figures, Adam (Roynon) would've scored more had he not have suffered a few bike problems and it was a good team performance. "We got off to a pretty slow start but I think that was to be expected for a new team in their first home meeting. "The boys worked really well together though and they were all helping each other out and we were particularly pleased with that because it bodes really well for the rest of the season."
Jordan Jenkins dusted himself down from a first bend collision in his first ride to secure a paid maximum on his Heathens debut.
Fellow Mildenhall man Drew Kemp also went unbeaten by an opponent as the talented 15-year-old linked up superbly with Jason Edwards at reserve as the duo contributed 21 points from nine rides.
Kyle Bickley was disqualified in his opening ride and went on to also reach double figures despite a spectacular crash in his final outing which he somehow walked away from despite puncturing the air bag.
Adam Roynon endured a frustrating night winning two of his rides, but his tally was hampered with mechanical gremlins forcing him out of his other two rides.
Bradley Andrews improved as the night went on and finished with a paid win while Conor Dwyer produced a steady performance on his first full meeting since the end of last season.

  CRADLEY boss Will Pottinger praised his National Trophy team for keeping their cool after the meeting at Stoke was abandoned - but Heathens took maximum points!  They ran out 37-22 winners and the result stands after referee Stuart Wilson declared the track unfit for racing after 10
races.
Motor Market Cradley boss Pottinger said: "We are more than happy we got the win and there have been some good performances from the lads tonight. "Unfortunately, Bradley Andrews came down in his first heat and he got injured.  "He has concussion so he's going to be out for at least 12 days. It's unfortunate but thankfully everyone else goes home in one piece.  "We got off to a really good start and we were always ahead so we don't have many complaints.  "Luckily Eastbourne got called off early in the day so we had Jason Edwards back in the team. With losing Bradley early on it would have put more pressure on Drew Kemp so we are very fortunate and thankful.
 We also thank Luke Whitehead for being our number eight squad member. It's appreciated.  "The track conditions were alright but it could have been a lot better.  "The guys dealt with the situation the best they could and they used their heads to try and stay safe. It wasn't easy but they got on with it.
The lads deserve a lot of credit for attacking the track.  "Unfortunately, the rain intervened so I think it was a sensible decision to call it off. We already had one rider going home injured and we didn't want any more.  "We've made a good start to the season but we know we are going to have to face tougher tests. We can only beat the opposition in front of us and we look forward to the next meeting against Coventry."
Rampant reserve Drew Kemp pulled off an emphatic three ride maximum leaving him unbeaten so far in Cradley's National Trophy campaign.
Conor Dwyer, though, suffered a frustrating night with mechanical gremlins.
Skipper Adam Roynon and Kyle Bickley produced solid performances scoring 17+1 between them.

  CRADLEY’S National Trophy hopes are hanging in the balance after their first defeat of the season.
Heathens slipped up 49-40 at the hands of fellow homeless club Coventry at Monmore on a night of tension and drama. The absence of brilliant teenager Drew Kemp was too much for Heathens to cope with which is clearly a concern going forward as he will also miss the trip to Buxton on Sunday.  New signing Alfie Bowtell did a fine job on debut for the Motor Market Heathens with 12+3 from his six outings – but there were too many weak links in the home side. Kyle Bickley did well to hold off former Heathens skipper Jon Armstrong for an important win in Heat 12 to keep Cradley within five of the visitors.  But when the brilliant Connor Mountain passed Heathens skipper Adam Roynon in Heat 13 it was a crushing blow for Will Pottinger’s men – and they were never likely to recover from 41-36 down.
Victory was assured for Coventry when former Heathens title winner Danny Phillips secured a brilliant win ahead of Jason Edwards with Jamie Halder third to go seven points up with one to go.
Heathens co-promoter Nigel Pearson said: “With us already missing a key rider like Drew Kemp it’s obvious we needed the remaining lads to step up to the plate.  “It’s disappointing to lose, but there were some positives and Jason Edwards impressed us particularly as well as Alfie Bowtell on debut. “I thought Will Pottinger, or manager, did everything right, his programme changes were spot on and I don’t think he could have done anything more than he did.  “Coventry were the better all-round side and I congratulate them for that. They fully deserved their win. “It means we are in a real battle for qualification for the final now. We cannot afford to be a four-man team and we must do better. “People expected us to walk away with this group – it just shows you never know what this sport will throw at you next!”
