CLUB STATEMENT

Wednesday July 12, 2017
THE Heathens management would like to take the opportunity to offer the Heathens Speedway Supporters Trust their unreserved congratulations on their announcement that they have submitted an application to Sandwell MBC which could, ultimately, see the development of a site into a future home for the club.

The Trust have been able to achieve something which we have been unable to in the past 8 years, but that's not to say there has been any lack of time, effort or expense spared in that time or by others before us.

When you feel like you're constantly running into brick walls and treated as the political hot potato, as we have been with both Labour and Conservative led administrations at Dudley MBC, your motivation is severely challenged.

We would urge all supporters of the Club to fully embrace this scheme which could finally achieve the ambition of every Heathens fan and ultimately see the return of their team to a home of their own nearly 22 years after the closure of Dudley Wood.

Finally, we look forward to seeing all Heathens fans at Perry Barr tonight to support the team as we take on Plymouth in our latest National League meeting (7.30).

Gary Patchett, Chris Van Straaten, Nigel Pearson - Heathens Speedway Club Ltd.
