MATCH REPORT: Manchester League Individual Finals

Astley & Tyldesley riders enjoyed a double success in the Manchester League Individual Finals, on a dry and dusty track at Bury.

A&T riders dominated the u-10 Final, with three riders tying for first place, after each scoring 15 points. In the run-off for the title, Fraser Brundrett drew grid 1, Aiden Green grid 2 and Duncan Whalley grid 4.

In a very close race, the riders crossed the finish line in the same order as their gate positions, for Fraser to take the title, ahead of Aiden and Duncan.

Just five riders contested the u-16 Final, but it was a hard fought event in each of the five races. The decider came in the last heat, with Max Evans and Michael Preston joint leaders on 9 points. Devon Campbell sped away from grid 1 to take the win and seal third place on the night, as Max gated round Michael and dropped in behind Devon to beat his main rival and clinch the title.
