Sun 28th April Sheffield v Astley & Tyldesley
Div 1,2,3

Astley & Tyldesley travelled to Sheffield, to take on the Stars in a North & Scotland League fixture at The Graves. It was another wet day there, but fortunately the rain stopped after the Division 3 match, unlike last year's monsoon day. The track had dried out to give a good racing surface for the final match of the day, Division 2.

League leaders Sheffield raced to a convincing 114-66 win in the Division 1 match. John White won three races for A&T, and he spoiled the maximum hopes of all Sheffield's big guns. Terry Norman was A&T's only other race winner, in heat 15. Steve Harris took a heavy fall, after locking bikes with Niall Morton in heat 11, and he withdrew from the rest of the meeting, with an injured wrist.
