Tom Sheard and Bella Naylor star in defeats
Due to star rider Pawel Idziorek racing in Poland and others on holiday, Heckmondwike struggled to field a full team against Bury in the Northern Cycle Speedway League at Firth Park.
Newcomer Tom Sheard, 15, was put into the team despite having had only two training sessions, but scored an impressive six points in the 97-53 defeat, while seven-year-old Bella Naylor was pitched in against under-12 boys.
Heckmondwike scores: Darren Kent 16, Jake Wood 12, Adam Watson 8, Tom Sheard 6, Justin Naylor 6, Laura Watson 5. Under-12s: Heckmondwike 4 (Bella Naylor 4), Bury 46.
