On track, the club enjoyed a much improved season, with the signing of the two Polish riders in 2002 proving to be the catalyst. Przemek Binkowski returned for the full season, but Tomasz Wlodarczyk was unable to, so Pawel Kozlowski was signed up and he raced for part of the season. Several new senior riders joined the club, along with three secondary registrations from Stoke, and the 1st team was much more competitive. Przemek broke the track record in his first race back, the time of 41.25 seconds was never beaten, before the old track was bulldozed early in 2016, to make way for the current track. Pawel became the first A&T rider to race in a World Individual Final.

Becky Heslop had a magnificent season at junior level. She become the first female rider in the 53 years history of British Finals to finish in the top three at any level, when finishing 2nd in the u-13 Final at Poole. The 1st team finished 3rd out of 5 teams in the Northern League, 8th out of 9 teams in the Northern Fours League, 1st out of 3 teams in the Manchester League Division 1. The junior team finished 2nd out of 7 teams in the Northern Junior League and 2nd out of 3 teams in the Manchester League Division 2. Przemek Binkowski was top scorer, with 226 points, and he also topped the race averages, on an incredible 3.83.
