Astley & Tyldesley hosted the second of this year’s Manchester League Individual Finals on Wednesday evening. There was a disappointing turn out of just five riders for the u-13 and u-19 championships.

A&T’s Duncan Whalley raced to maximum scores in both competitions, to add to the two maximums he scored in Sunday’s Northern Individual Finals at Sheffield. Bury’s Tom Dunphy was runner-up in both competitions, with his younger brother, Sam, taking 3rd place in the u-13 event and Owen Simcock, of A&T, taking 3rd place in the u-19 match. Duncan recorded the fastest time of the night, 46.21 seconds, in heat 1 of the u-13 match.
