INTRODUCING THE ANCHOR LOGISTICS HEATHENS
Lye-based Anchor Logistics have joined forces with the Monmore
Green club who will race for a 10th successive season after rising from the
ashes in 2010.
David Turley of Anchor Logistics is a Heathens fan going back to the early 90s
at their former Dudley Wood home watching World Champions Greg Hancock and Billy
Hamill in action.
He’s remained a firm fan of the sport ever since and is now delighted to be
joining the club and the team will now be known as the Anchor Logistics

HEATHENS RACE ON!
CRADLEY HEATHENS will race for the National Trophy next year.
The nomadic club have entered the competition for the first time to ensure the
world famous name survives into a ninth season since their relaunch. All
home meetings will be raced at Wolverhampton’s Monmore Green Stadium after
making the decision not to take Birmingham up on the offer to race at Perry
Barr. Manager Will Pottinger has already pledged his commitment to stay in
charge of the team and will be looking to use a settled squad of riders.
It means Heathens won’t be in the National League - but fans will have the
chance to follow their team and there is also the prospect of the prestigious
Golden Hammer individual continuing. [Read More]

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.
