BIRMINGHAM take part in the ‘Revenge Challenge’ as they head to Kent on Monday (6.30).

The Surestop Brummies accepted the invite from the Kings, prior to missing out on the end-of-season play-offs.

And with their opponents now safely in the National League’s top four positions, team manager Graham Drury is anticipating a tough trip to Central Park.

“Kent have come on strong in recent weeks and they’re without doubt the in-form team heading into the play-offs,” Drury said.

“Ourselves and Kent have formed quite a rivalry over the past three years and we’ve seen some classic contests between the two clubs.

“We certainly had the better of them in the first two years but they’ve got a very strong side this year and have deserved their wins against us.

“It will be a good way to keep their riders fresh heading into the play-offs but for us it’s another chance for the lads to get some bike time in before the winter comes along.

“It’s been quite disappointing how our season has faded in the closing weeks but we should still be proud of how far we have come and what we have achieved in terms of bringing riders on in their careers.”

KENT: Luke Bowen, Anders Rowe, Ben Hopwood, Dan Greenwood, Jack Thomas, TBC, George Hunter.

BIRMINGHAM: Jack Parkinson-Blackburn R/R, Layne Cupitt, David Mason, Tom Bacon, Liam Carr, Alex Spooner, Taylor Hampshire.
