Tomasz stars on his comeback
10:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in Sport
POLISH star Tomasz Wlodarczyk marked his return to Astley & Tyldesley with a stellar performance as the club hosted Sheffield Rockets in the Northern League fixture on Sunday.
Wlodarczyk won Heat One at the Gin Pit and rode to an immaculate 20 points maximum score to help A&T to victory in Division One.
The Polish star’s win and Danny Swales fall saw Heat One shared, as were the next two heats, before George Hughes and Mark Graham’s heat win gave A&T the lead.
Sheffield then moved ahead for the first time in the meeting, before brothers Mark and Paul Graham clawed back the hosts’ advantage.
A&T provided the race winner in 10 of the 15 races, but astonishingly all seven races were drawn after the interval as A&T held on to move off the foot of the table.
Northern League Division 1 match result: Astley & Tyldesley 75 Sheffield Rockets 74 A&T scorers: Tomasz Wlodarczyk 20, Danny Hughes 16, Paul Graham 13 (plus 2 bonus), Mark Graham 12, George Hughes 5 (1), Roy Heslop 5 (1), Danny Swales 3, Ciaran Collins 1.
A&T’s young riders were undone by an experienced Sheffield team in the Division Two match, despite Roy Heslop and George Hughes taking a race apiece.

A&T produced an emphatic 87-29 win in Division Three in a match that could go a long way to determining the eventual league winners.
James Bunting rode to maximum points for Sheffield, but all eight A&T riders rode well and scored plenty of points to make it 10 wins out of 10 matches ridden.
