BIRMINGHAM Brummies are set to rise from the ashes next season – with an application to enter the National League.Former club owner Tony Mole has confirmed he will be entering the Brummies – with their traditional yellow and red race jacket colours – in the third tier of the sport as a starting point to rebuild the club, and they will be joined at Perry Barr by reigning champions Cradley (see Speedway 2).Mole said: “This is very much the first stage in a rebuilding process and if the team is a success and we get the necessary support from fans then I will be looking to take the club up into a higher level.“I am pleased to see Cradley Heath survive and they will be the team everyone wants to beat next season. They have won the title for the last two seasons and will be going for the hat-trick, but I have two main ambitions myself for 2015 – win the league and beat Cradley!“We will be building a competitive team and I have a team manager in mind. More announcements will be made in due course, including our opening night details.”

CRADLEY Heathens will be gunning for a third successive National League title next season – but on a new home track.The club have lost the use of Monmore Green which is only available for Elite League Wolverhampton in 2015, but a deal has been struck to share Birmingham’s Perry Barr Stadium, with the clubs racing on alternate Wednesdays.Cradley chairman Nigel Pearson said: “This is wonderful news for both sets of supporters and from a Cradley point of view it’s a big relief to get this sorted.“It will mean we will need every single Heathens fan to come along to Perry Barr and support us to ensure the club survives.“I would like to thank Tony Mole for his co-operation. It’s been a stressful few weeks, we have been desperate to keep the club on track and we have achieved that. Now we can get down to looking at team options – as best we can before we know a definite points limit – and our target has to be a hat-trick of National League titles!”
