RESULT: Yorkshire v Greater Manchester

Cycle Speedway riders from Yorkshire raced against their Greater Manchester counterparts last night (16th July 2014) at Heckmondwike, in a memorial meeting in memory of the late Jeff Layden, reigniting an old rivalry between the two regions. 

The Yorkshire side took the win 93 – 86, with both sides fielding teams with some top riders. Yorkshire had no less than six current internationals from five different nations.

It is hoped that the meeting will become an annual event once again after the success of this year.
