MATCH REPORT: BYJL Northern Rd1 from Astley & Tyldesley

Astley & Tyldesley staged the 1st North Regional Round of the Youth & Junior League series at a warm and sunny Gin Pit.

First up were the U8s and U10s, run concurrently. A&T’s Aiden Green raced unbeaten in the U8s event, with Sheffield’s Joe Brownell doing likewise in the U10s category.

Bury’s Harry Radford topped the qualifying scores in the U12s match and went on to win the Grand Prix Final after a re-run. A&T’s John White was unlucky after leading the original staging of the Final.

Bury’s Louis Turner went through the card unbeaten in the U14s event.

A&T’s Emily Burgess was the only Girl entrant, so she raced with the Junior Boys and certainly made her presence felt with some great racing in a competitive match. A&T’s Max Evans led the Final but fell on 2nd lap with Bury’s Kaysar Mohammedi gratefully taking the lead and winning the Junior Final.

A&T ran out easy winners in the Team scores, with Bury just pipping Sheffield for 2nd place.
