Many congratulations go to Astley & Tyldesley’s Frank White on winning the u-10 Little League Boys Individual Final at Southampton on Saturday. Frank was the lone Astley & Tyldesley club entry and he raced to a 20 points maximum score, to add to the u-8 Little League title he won in 2019. In doing so, Frank continued his amazing run of winning every race at u-8 level in 2019 and at u-10 level in 2021. No u-10 events were held in 2020. The u-10 Boys and Girls raced together in one match, with the placings subsequently split for each competition.

The u-8 and u-10 competitions are unofficial British Individual Championships, as British Cycling do not recognise official British titles for cycle speedway until the u-12 level, although they are contested by the country’s best riders in those age categories.
