Astley & Tyldesley are the Northern League Division 3 champions for the eighth successive season.

A&T's youngsters rode to a convincing 102-53 win over West Yorkshire side, Heckmondwike, at a cool and blustery Gin Pit on Sunday afternoon.

Josh Pilkington and Frank White both raced to 16 points maximums in the u-10s and u-13s matches respectively.

Levi Edwards and Alex Lawless were both unbeaten by an opponent in the u-10s match.

Just two of A&T's regular Division 2 squad - Caspar Ellis and Frank White - were available for the Division 2 match that followed. Full credit to the seven Division 3 riders who filled the missing places.
