30Sep: Adwick's Revenge

The final gala at Dearneside was extremely exciting with every race closely contested. It was also one of the noisiest galas I have attended for years, with every result greated with cheers and the points being announced at every opportunity. The overall winners of the league cannot be announced because the Stocksbridge gala is still in dispute.
