Paul Whitelegg generated record levels of advertising income, with the efforts of Joanne Whitelegg and June Phillips generating increased income from subscriptions and refreshments. Ron Makin replaced Lee Phillips in mid-season as Facilities Manager, and he secured good turnouts at work party sessions, to supplement the excellent work of Track Curator, Alan Farrell. Beccy Heslop organised promotional and recruitment stands at various events during the year. The club capitalised on this, as a large influx of new members, who were inspired to join their local cycling club after watching the Olympics, knew where to come to. June Phillips retired at the end of the year as Catering Manager and she won the Wigan Unsung Hero in Sport award.

The 1st team re-entered the Northern Combination League, with a mix of returning experienced and new riders. Team manager Mike Hack was satisfied with a 4th place finish out of 7 teams, proving to be competitive at this level. Junior Team manager Will Evans guided the team to some excellent results. A&T finished 2nd in the North u-12 section of the BYJL,
to qualify for the national series for the first time. We won the Manchester League Division 2 for the first time since 2009, and took 2nd place in the u-10 British Club Championship at Gin Pit, finishing just 2 points behind Kesgrave. The club moved up 5 places to 9th, out of 18 teams, in the overall British Club Championship table.

The end of season A&T Club Championships attracted a record field of 36 riders. Multi discipline cyclist, Joel Partington, gained a place on British Cycling’s Talent Team. Ron Makin was the club’s top scorer, with 35 points, whilst Roy Heslop topped the race averages, on 1.94.
