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.

CLUB 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.
