Sat 23th June British Club Championships U16s Girls, Women's and Vets Astley & Tyldesley

It was a brilliant day's cycle speedway racing at a hot and sunny Gin Pit on Saturday, as Astley & Tyldesley hosted three British Club Championship events, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Astley.

Astley & Tyldesley teams took podium places by finishing 3rd in each of the main finals.

In the Womens Final, A&T's 14 years old Emily Burgess turned in a fantastic performance to be the meeting's top scorer, with 15 points, beaten just once in the match, despite racing against senior opposition. A&T's other riders were all new recruits from other cycling disciplines and it was a great performance by the new team to take 3rd place in the Women's Final. Leicester won the title for an incredible 13th successive year, finishing ahead of Poole.

After a bright start with two race wins in the opening four races in the Veterans Final, A&T fell behind to finish in 3rd place. Two gate exclusions put paid to A&T's attempts to beat Birmingham for second place. All five Leicester riders dropped a single point apiece, as they retained the Veterans trophy.
