MATCH REPORT: Brandon Bees juniors secure maiden win
The new Brandon Bees junior Cycle Speedway team secured their maiden win last Tuesday evening at Bretford Playing Fields by 92-58 over a young but enthusiastic East Park Wolves team.
Once again, all the Brandon juniors were recruits from the very popular Saturday morning `Dirt Bike Club`, which was only introduced at the Brandon Road venue a month ago.
The Bees fielded the side that lost to Birmingham juniors a week previously, adding Joseph Augustas to the squad. On a track made heavy by constant rain during the day, the new Brandon team soon took charge.
After heat one was shared, the Bees raced ahead and in Lee Gregory, Jonny Middleton, Tom Savage and Cameron Gill, they provided the next four heat winners. Newcomer Augustas also got in on the act, scoring freely.
The home side built-up a convincing 48 – 32 half time lead. They displayed increasing confidence as they honed-in on a remarkable first victory – just 23 days after taking up the sport.
Hotshot Gill, who appears destined for big things, went on to record his first maximum. Seasoned onlookers suggested it would be the first of many from the Stratford Upon Avon youngster.
Brandon Bees point scorers:
Jonny Middleton 15, Cameron Gill 15, Tom Savage 15, Owen Gregory 13, Lee Gregory 11, Amy Baynes 9, Lewis Middleton 7 and Joseph Augustas 7.
Brandon Bees will next be in action on Tuesday 23rd August when they visit Leicester Monarchs. The match will start at 7.30pm under floodlights.
Meanwhile, the `Dirt Bike Club`, held at the Brandon Bees Cycle Speedway track in Bretford Playing Fields, continues every Saturday, up to and including, Saturday 13th August.
