MATCH REPORT: Vikings deliver solid performance against Heckmondwike

Heckmondwike 57 – 93 Northumbria, Northern League, Sunday 13th April 2014

Solid scoring throughout the team took the Vikings to their expected first win of the season. The three younger riders all showed up very well with Scott Latimer riding unbeaten, Dan Redshaw more aggressive again when needed and Daniel Wharrier narrowly losing out on a first ever max when chasing down Darren Kent in his last race.

Michael Parr and Jason Keith both lost points as they were ridden out wide by other riders, but rode well for their partners, while Mark Mulvey also lost out after tangling with top home rider Adam Watson, who snatched several points late on from the back. Gavin Parr was untroubled all day and concentrated on team riding where possible, while Terry Kirkup continued to look back on the pace dropping only a single point.

Adam Watson 14+2, Darren Kent 13+1, Sandra Tomborska 9, Justin Naylor 6, Laura Watson 6, Chris Summersgill 5, Ryan Summersgill 2, Richard Wells 2
NORTHUMBRIA – 93 Gavin Parr 14+2, Daniel Wharrier 14+1, Dan Redshaw 13+1, Mark Mulvey 13, Scott Latimer 11+1, Jason Keith 10+2, Mick Parr 10, Terry Kirkup 8+3
