MATCH REPORT: Manchester League Round 3

Bury hosted Round 3 of the 2023 Manchester League series, with an improved turn out from the previous round, on a sunny but cold Wednesday evening.

Once again, Bury had three riders in the Division 2 match who rode to maximum scores – Bobby Dunphy (u-10), Jayden Hancock (u-13), Tom Dunphy (u-16). However, the Astley & Tyldesley riders again secured enough points between them to take the team win on the night and the third in the series. Owen Simcock of A&T had his score adjusted to 16, by virtue of being the only u-19 rider present.
