League newcomers Fife Revolutions were in action at Gin Pit in a Division 2 match.
The first three races were drawn, as A&T provided the race winners. Fife then banged in three 7-3 heat wins in the next four races, to move into a commanding 45-32 lead at the interval. A&T rallied to keep the gap at 13 points, before Fife finished off with three successive 7-3 heat wins, to run out convincing 86-61 winners. Fife captain Craig Hardie lost only to Matt Snell in heat 1, whilst James Keenlyside lost only to Mick Knowles in heat 2, with strong support throughout. Knowles was best for A&T with two race wins. The visitors put in an impressive display and are a welcome, competitive addition to the Northern League.
