CO-OWNER David Mason has issued a rallying call to Birmingham locals ahead of Wednesday’s league opener at Perry Barr (7.30).

It’s been a difficult period for the Edwards Plumbing Brummies who have lost all seven of their fixtures upon their return to professional league racing.

But club bosses have already acted swiftly and made two team changes - including an emotional return to the club for 2015 league title winner Adam Ellis who has also represented Great Britain on the world stage.

Now Mason wants the local public to get behind his riders and insists Wednesday’s visit from Edinburgh is a fresh slate.
“It goes without saying that our step-up to the second tier hasn’t started how we would’ve liked,” Mason said.
“Losing meeting after meeting was no good for anybody at the club but with more-or-less a full league campaign ahead of us, we felt we needed to tweak one or two things to help turn things around.

“We’re confident our fortunes will change now and there’s still so much to be optimistic about.

“As I’ve said we’ve only actually had one league meeting so far, the rest have been Cup, Shield or Challenge matches, so there’s still plenty to look forward to.
“It’s almost like our season starts again this Wednesday and we want everyone to get down to Perry Barr and get behind us.
“We’ve got a great set of loyal supporters at Birmingham and since we took over last year, we’ve seen a lot of people coming to get a taste of live Speedway for the very first time.

“Now that the football season is more-or-less done, except for one big game for some locals, we’d love to see even more people getting to Perry Barr and getting right behind another sports club representing the city.

“We’re really hopeful that this set of riders we’ve now got can turn our fortunes around and start winning some Speedway meetings - and that extra bit of encouragement and support on the terraces could really give our boys a massive boost with a large percentage of the season still ahead of them.”
