ASTLEY and Tyldesley Cycle Speedway Club’s individual champions have been crowned.

Ben Dickenson, Laura Watson, Joel Partington, Adam Watson and Adam Turnbull all sealed glory at the Championships staged at Gin Pit.

In the first match, Adam Watson raced unbeaten to take the under 10s title, with Stefan Whitelegg runner-up and Jamie Sinclair third.

Turnbull lost only to Watson and Whitelegg to take the under eights title one point ahead of Max Evans, with Kian Crane third and Tyler Koch fourth.

The second match featured under 19s, under 16s, under 13s and open categories.

Dickenson raced unbeaten to take both the under 19s and open categories.

Luke Jamson lost only once to finish runner-up in both categories, with Matthew Turnbull taking third place in the under 19s section.

Laura Watson was triumphant in the under 16s category.

Joel Partington lost only to Dickenson and Jamson to take the under 13s crown and third place in the open category.

Adam Watson finished runner-up in the under 13s category, with Max Evans third.

Astley and Tyldesley were represented by 10 riders in the fourth and final national round of the British Youth and Junior League Grand Prix series at Sheffield.

Adam Phillips completed a terrific achievement a year after winning the under 10s series.

He started the day as leader in the under 12s competition, six points ahead of his nearest rival, Matt Haddock, of Wednesfield.

Both riders qualified for the A final, with Phillips drawing the unfavourable outside grid.

Haddock got away for the race win but Phillips gated round from the outside to secure second place in the race and that was enough to give him overall victory in the eight-round series by a solitary point.

Phillips will be eligible to defend his under 12s title next year.

Adam Turnbull started the day in third place in the under eights Grand Prix.

His win in the B final was enough to secure third place overall.

Meanwhile, Bury hosted the sixth and final round of the Northern Junior Grand Prix series.

Adam Watson scored his sixth maximum score in the under 10s category to go through the series unbeaten and take the title, with teammates Colin Farn and Adam Turnbull taking second and third places overall to make it a clean sweep for Astley and Tyldesley.

Ben Dickenson raced unbeaten on the day in the under 19s category but that was not enough to overhaul Luke Jamson, whose total of 13 points on the day was sufficient to give him the overall series title, with Ben runner-up.

Stockport won the overall team element of the series, with Astley and Tyldesley finishing runners-up in an eight-team competition.
