|Sun 30th Sept||Glasgow v Astley & Tyldesley||Glasgow|
A&T lined up at Glasgow for the afternoon fixture, again conceding 25 penalty points for the Division 2 match. Despite this handicap, the A&T riders put in a great performance to pull this back and take the lead after heat 11, to run out 91-84 winners. This win clinched 2nd place in the Division 2 table.
11 years old John White showed why he is the British u-12 Boys Individual Champion, by racing to a 20 points maximum score against a much older and more experienced Glasgow team. Team captain Mick Knowles also raced unbeaten, with Mark Grantham and Emily Burgess both beaten once only by an opponent.
