MATCH REPORT: Convincing for A&T at Hull

Northern League champions, Astley & Tyldesley, raced to an easy 103-66 win over Hull in yesterday’s Division 1 match at Hessle.

Hull could only muster five riders for the match and fell behind in the first race. A&T then took four maximum heat wins, to put the match beyond doubt at an early stage. Andy Angell raced to a fine 24 points maximum for Hull, but his only support came from Adam Stephenson, with two race wins.

A&T riders all scored solidly, with all nine riders recording at least one race win each, to preserve their 100% record this season.

A&T loaned Kyle Holland to the home team to bring their numbers up to five, to make a match of it in the Division 2 event.

A very young A&T team romped to a convincing 88-55 win on the track, amended to 88-38, after removing points for a borrowed rider. Special mentions to A&T’s u-10 riders, Duncan Whalley and Frank White, who excelled in this match, with everyone scoring freely.

Tom Morrissey top scored for A&T, losing only to Hull’s Jack Lister in heat 9. This win maintains the defending champions 100% record this season.
