GOLDEN HAMMER 2017

BRITISH teenage sensation Dan Bewley was crowned the 2017 F.A.S.T Golden Hammer Champion after a thrilling three man run-off at Monmore Green.
The Belle Vue and Glasgow youngster drew level on 13 points with former Cradley captain Max Clegg and Lakeside star Ben Morley after their five programmed rides.  But it was Bewley who came out in front in the decider as the trio went three abreast into the third bend of the opening lap before eventually pulling clear to victory.

CRADLEY HEATHENS 43 EASTBOURNE EAGLES 46

Skipper Tom Perry cut a disconsolate figure as Cradley finished their National League programme with a three-point defeat at home to Eastbourne. Perry, back from injury, was nearly the hero as he hit the front in the opening lap of the last-heat decider with Cradley needing a share of the spoils to take a surprise victory.  Guest Ben Hopwood eased through into third and things looked good for Will Pottinger's men only for Perry to fall on the fourth turn. Hopwood could make no impression in the rerun as Eagles maximum man Jake Knight and Josh Bailey sealed the win and their place at the top of the National League standings.  [Details]

CLUB HISTORY 2016  REVIEW 

With due respect to the promotion at Perry Barr a lot of fans were  glad to be back at Monmore. It has become our second home now while the promoters still try to find that suitable piece of land in the Cradley Heath area.

Now fully sponsored by local car dealers Motor Market and the same management company of Nigel Pearson, Chris Van Straaten and Gary Patchett with Will Pottinger managing the team things were looking good.
