Wed 10th May Manchester Grand Prix Astley & Tyldesley

Astley & Tyldesley staged Round 1 of the Manchester League Grand Prix series on a warm, sunny Wednesday evening.

First up were the u-10s and Bury's Kaci Neath top scored, losing only to A&T's Duncan Whalley in heat 5. A&T's Emily Burgess and Bury's Harry Radford continued their rivalry in the u-13s match, each suffering an exclusion in their two races together (for gate and chopping respectively). This let in A&T's John White to top the scores in this match with 13 points. Stockport's Devon Campbell top scored with 14 points in the u-16 event, with A&T's Reece Pollitt racing to a 16 points maximum in the u-19s category. Defending champions Astley & Tyldesley ran out winners in the Division 2 match (for u-10s, u-13s, u-16s and u-19s).
