CRADLEY HEATHENS 37
LEICESTER LION CUBS 53
The Anchor Logistics Heathens lost 53-37 in the first leg of
their National League Play-Off Semi-Final.
It was always going to be a big ask for the Heathens against a
strong Leicester side who finished 14-points ahead of them in the table to top
the regular standings. The loss of their home track advantage also told
though; with Monmore Green unavailable, The Heathens were forced to stage their
home leg at Birmingham’s Perry Barr Stadium.
BELLE VUE COLTS 55 CRADLEY
CUP kings Cradley missed out on a final spot after
going down 55-35 at Belle Vue.
During the Dudley Wood days in the 80s Cradley
were the most successful cup side - and more has followed in the modern era.
But the trip to the National Speedway Stadium was one step too far after
Monday’s first leg defeat at Monmore.

HISTORY 2018 REVIEW
Limited dates from Monmore Green, so Cradley
could not race in the National League in 2018. However to keep
the Heathens name alive the management decided to race the five
team Northern section of the National Trophy.
The difficult circumstances with riders not being tied to just
the Heathens club for just 10 matches would always cause
difficulties. Cradley were allowed to cherry pick riders
from other clubs.
