Match / Event
|Sun 15th March||Astley & Tyldesley v Sheffield||Astley & Tyldesley|
Continuing on from the match against Edinburgh there were two matches against Sheffield, as the second part of the double header. In the Division 2 match, Sheffield took the lead in heat 1, with a 6-4 from Kielan Burton/Laura Watson over Mark Grantham/ Duncan Whalley. The Stars never lost the lead after that and eventually ran out 80-70 winners. Kielan Burton rode to a maximum score, with good support from a solid scoring team. Captain Mark Grantham was best for A&T, but the third match of the day for both John White and Emily Burgess, on the opening day of the season, proved to be a tall task.
