Sun 2nd July Astley & Tyldesley v Sheffield
Div 1, 2 and 3
Astley & Tyldesley

A&T welcomed the Sheffield Stars club to Gin Pit for a triple bill of North & Scotland League matches on Sunday.

In the Division 1 match, A&T took an early lead with a 7-3 win to the Frank White/ Terry Norman pairing in heat 3. However, the visitors drew level two heats later and then took the lead in heat 7, which they held for the rest of the match. It was a close, hard fought and very tactical encounter throughout the match. Despite a valiant attempt by A&T all match, Sheffield held the upper hand and ran out 93-87 winners, in what was a very entertaining match.

A&T fielded a team of five u-13 riders, plus a first year rider, in the Division 2 match. Unsurprisingly, Sheffield took an early lead and gradually pulled away for an 80-68 win. Full credit to the A&T youngsters for putting up a spirited show and making a match of it. The White brothers were in excellent form for A&T, both losing once each to Emily Burgess. Emily in turn lost once to John, before incurring a gate exclusion in heat 15. Lacey Ackroyd top scored for the visitors, losing once each to the White brothers.
