Astley & Tyldesley raced to a convincing win in Round 3 of the Northern Fours League series at Stockport, on Sunday. All four A&T riders won races, as the team finished 12 points clear of runners-up Stockport. Reece Pollitt raced to a superb 16 points maximum score, with Pawel Idziorek losing just once, Steve Harris twice and Joel Partington weighing in with solid support. A&T were one point clear of Stockport at the interval, but a strong second half performance, dropping just two points, saw them pull away to clinch victory with two races remaining.

A&T captain Reece Pollitt made his full England debut in the Home International at the Fife track, in Dunfermline, on Saturday. Reece turned in an excellent performance, winning two of his three races and finishing second in the other, to score 11 points

Earlier in the day, A&T’s British Women’s Champion Emily Burgess teamed up with Sheffield’s Tyldesley based Laura Watson, to win the Women’s Regional Pairs Championship for the fourth successive staging. Representing the North & Scotland region, Emily raced unbeaten in her six races.
