There was success for Astley & Tyldesley Cycle Speedway Club members at the Believe Wigan Sports Awards Evening at The Edge Conference Centre on Saturday night.

There were 400 guests present, while there were 120 nominations for the eight awards categories.

A&T took second place in the ‘Club-of-the-Year’ category, and British Under-12 Boys Cycle Speedway champion, Frank White, took third place in the Young Sports Achiever category.

Former GB Olympic ski jumper, Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, was an excellent guest speaker at the event.

On the track, however, A&T wrapped up a disappointing North & Scotland League Division One campaign with a heavy 107-73 home defeat by Fife.

Once again, A&T had a host of experienced riders missing, leaving inexperienced Division Two and Three riders to fill places in the team.

Grand Veteran, Terry Norman, was in excellent form, losing only once. But his only real back up came from fellow Grand Veteran, Steve Harris, who won three races.

Although no one raced unbeaten, all the Fife team scored well and the visitors were in control throughout the match.

A&T scorers: Terry Norman 23, Steve Harris 18, Owen Simcock 10, Josh Pilkington 8, Mason Gallagher 8, Nahom Tumizghy 6.
