Sun 21st Oct Northern Fours And Junior Grand Prix Round 2 Stockport

It was a close fought Group A match in Round 2 of the Northern Fours League, at Stockport today. Astley & Tyldesley lined up minus Reece Pollitt, who suffered a broken thumb on Saturday at Birmingham. Despite this, A&T took a narrow three points win over Stockport and Bury. A&T led at the end of each of the three rounds of races, but finished off on the unfavourable grid 4's. Bury had cut A&T's lead to one point going into the last race. Stockport's Jake Read took the win off grid 1, with Pawel Idziorek securing second place, for his only defeat of the day, ahead of Northumbria's Gavin Parr and Bury's Adam Turnbull, to seal the match win for A&T. The four A&T riders all scored well, to take their second win of the series. Northumbria drop to group B in the next round, at Bury on Sunday 4th November.

Stockport hosted Round 2 of the Northern Grands Prix on Sunday, on the same billing as the Fours League.  Bury's Tom Dunphy raced unbeaten in the u-10s match, as did Astley & Tyldesley's Tom Morrissey in the u-13s event. Bury's Kaysar Mohammadi top scored in the u-16s category, beaten once each by Lewis Foxley and Daniel Mason.  The four older groups (u-19, Women, Division 2 and Division 1) were all lumped together in one match, so all riders scored highly when the scores were subsequently adjusted. On the track, A&T's Pawel Idziorek raced unbeaten, with Sheffield's Adam Watson beaten only once, by him, in heat 16.  In the Team category, Astley & Tyldesley took a comfortable win, to move to the top of the table, finishing ahead of Bury and Hull.
