Match / Event
|Sun 10th April||Hull v Astley & Tyldesley||Hull|
Astley & Tyldesley took a very depleted squad of just nine riders to Hull, for Sunday's North & Scotland League fixture, and unsurprisingly, lost all three matches. Credit goes to young Josh Pilkington and coaches Mike Hack and Chaz Whalley, for stepping in to complete the line-ups for the 1st and 2nd team matches.
A&T put up a strong showing in the Division 1 match. Despite trailing from heat 1 onwards, A&T kept in the hunt throughout, before losing 92-87. Captain Reece Pollitt was in excellent form, dropping his only point in heat 10, when home skipper Nathan Everett pipped him on the line. Team manager Steve Harris was in excellent form, losing only to Everett and Lewis Foxley. Duncan Whalley and Paul Graham formed a solid pairing in their races together. Everett and Foxley lost only to A&T's top two scorers, with Jack Lister picking up an exclusion after a fall and causing a stoppage in heat 11.
