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]


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.   [Details]

                  Heathens 1960

Sponsored once again by team partners Motor Market and Dudley Stroke Association the Heathens competed in the National League. Racing meetings at Monmore Green and Perry Barr. The team looked good on paper and their first match against Kings Lynn at Perry Barr seemed to show their potential with a 61-29 win. However the Young Stars withdrew from the league and the score expunged from the table!
