Match / Event
|Sun 23rd April||Edinburgh v Astley & Tyldesley||Edinburgh|
Astley & Tyldesley visited the defending Northern League Division 1 champions Edinburgh on Sunday.
After two shared heats, A&T took the lead with a 6-3 win in heat 3. A 7-3 win to the strong Tomasz Wlodarczyk/ Damian Zareba pairing over Jason Burke/ Marcin Czarkowski in heat 9 gave A&T a commanding 50-39 interval lead. A 7-2 to the Burke/ Mike Hewitson pairing over Ciaran Collins in heat 11, after Reece Pollitt was excluded, gave the home side hope of a recovery. However, the Wlodarczyk/ Zareba pairing banged in another 7-3 over Craig Newsome/ Neil McPherson in the next race to put A&T 13 points ahead. The visitors held on to record an impressive 93-82 win, courtesy of a solid scoring team. Zareba raced unbeaten for A&T, with Wlodarczyk beaten only by Edinburgh's top scorer, Burke, in the last race.
