Northern Fours & Junior
On a wet dismal day, Stockport hosted the penultimate Round 5 of the Northern Fours & Junior League series. Astley & Tyldesley started the day as clear leaders of both leagues, and wins today could have all but sealed the overall title wins. However. a low turn out of riders saw A&T beaten on the day in both leagues. Consequently, both titles are still up for grabs and will be decided in the final round of the series at Bury next Sunday.
Just five riders turned out for A&T in the Junior League match. Sheffield took the win on the day, to draw level with A&T at the top of the Junior League table. Aiden Green scored 14 points in the u-10s match, losing twice to Sheffield's Edward Balfour. Aiden now has a 1 point lead over Edward in the GP series. There were good scores from Levi Edwards and Freddie Cox, with 13 points apiece. Charlie Burgess top scored in the u-13s match with 13 points.

league leaders, but are now only one point ahead of second placed Stockport.
Steve Harris pulled off two superb passes on the opening laps of his first two races, as he went on to record a 16 points maximum score.
