Heat 4 saw Dave Cooper team up with Nathan Everett for a 6-4, with Nathan then joining with Adam Stephenson for a heat 6 maximum race win. Bury took a share in the remaining first half heats thanks to taking second

Bury pushed the home side hard in every race but were unable to match the fire power of Andy Angell, David Hemsley and Adam Stephenson who were all unbeaten in a sporting match that provided lots of exciting racing.
