ASHLEY Birks is to return to hometown club Sheffield next season after three years with neighbours Scunthorpe.Birks, who rode for the Tigers in 2011, has suffered a series of injuries in the last two campaigns including a broken back in 2013, and says the opportunity to rejoin the Owlerton side comes at a good time in his career.Birks said: “I feel I need a change just to freshen things up. I took the offer with both hands.“Everyone has seen how enthusiastic the promoters are at Sheffield. They are trying to make things happen and they want a winning team.“It had always been in my plans to come back to Sheffield at some stage because it's my local track and it's one of the best in the country, if not the best.”(SPEEDWAY 2)

DEVON have postponed their final fixture of the season after the National League Grand Final was re-arranged.The Demons were due to host Coventry on Friday in a regular league match, but the Storm’s Final fixture against Cradley was rained-off on Wednesday and re-scheduled for Friday.Devon co-promoter David Short said: “We had been aware of the possible problem and, along with the National League co-ordinator Peter Morrish, made efforts to see if Mildenhall or Stoke could have fitted in their outstanding matches with us on Friday.“Unfortunately, owing to the short notice, they were unable to assist. So it means the season has now ended at Plymouth.”
