Event: Midland League
Location: Birmingham Cycle Speedway, Perry Barr, Birmingham
Event: 29 September 013
Report: Tim Jarvis/Snowdon Sports

Despite the glorious sunshine, this fixture had something of an end of season feel to it as visitors Leicester opened up with a 7-3 from Norm Venson and Lauren Davies and, from that point, were never in any danger.

Despite taking a nasty fall Mark Winwood was the pick of the Birmingham riders and the Timms boys chipped in with some useful points, but no-one could stop Leicester skipper Craig Marchant who went through the card unbeaten by the opposition.

Marchant received back up throughout his team with the younger members again showing that their first-team experience this season will pay long term dividends.


Birmingham 82 (Mark Winwood 13, Chris Timms 13+3, Paul Timms 13+1, John Rawlings 13, Bob Prince 11, Steve Hodgkinson 9+1, Ewan Hancox 6, Rich Stevenson 2).

Leicester 99 (Craig Marchant 18+2, Lauren Davies 15+1, Liam Davies 13+1, Norm Venson 12+1, Ryan Hoyland 12+1, Mick Skinner 11+1, Liam Wood 11, Ash Doughty 7).
