Sun 4th July Bury v Astley & Tyldesley Bury

Astley & Tyldesley made the short trip to Bury for their first away North & Scotland League fixture of the season, on Sunday. With rain falling throughout most of the meeting, it was an unpleasant afternoon on a heavy track, particularly for A&T, who lost all three matches.

It was a depleted A&T team that lined up in the Division 1 match. Bury gained revenge for their defeat at Gin Pit in May, by racing to a convincing 120 -60 win, taking maximum points in 13 of the 18 races. Five Bury riders raced unbeaten, as A&T failed to provide a single race winner. Steve Harris and Mark Grantham managed two second places each, with Charlie Burgess taking a second in heat 17.

It was a similar tale in the Division 2 match, with A&T fielding only five riders. Duncan Whalley and Mark Grantham both won two races each for the visitors. For Bury, Harry Radford and Eryk Motala were unbeaten up to the last heat, before Eryk collected a gate exclusion and Harry followed Sonny Waddington home, to seal a 86-57 win for Bury.

The Division 3 match was A&T's best performance of the day, as the six of A&T put up a really good show against the nine of Bury. A&T's Oscar Belt raced unbeaten in the u-10 category, with team mate Sonny Waddington losing only to Oscar. In the u-13 section, Bury's Tom Dunphy and A&T's Duncan Whalley jointly top scored, losing once to each other. Despite some excellent performances by the A&T riders, Bury's numerical superiority proved decisive, as they ran out 84-72 winners.
