All change at Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM will be under new management next season - after Brummies owner Tony Mole confirmed that Graham Drury is leaving the club.

BIRMINGHAM will be under new management next season - after Brummies owner Tony Mole confirmed that Graham Drury is leaving the club.

Drury and wife Denise were employed by Mole for the re-launch of racing at Perry Barr back in 2007, and both remained on board when the club was leased by Gary Patchett for the 2010 season.

Mole has resumed control with Patchett not taking up his option to buy the club outright, but his long association with Drury has now come to an end.

Drury’s spell in charge has been a successful one, with the Brummies finishing in the Premier League’s top four in three of the last four seasons, reaching four major Finals and also winning Pairs and Fours titles.

Mole said: “My company has reluctantly decided against re-engaging Graham Drury as promoter and team manager on cost grounds.

“A team manager will be appointed in due course, but as soon as possible.
