Report and Images: Andy Whitehouse
Poole was crowned Under 16 club champion in a rain lashed final held at Newport's International Sports Village.
Strong rides from Ben Mould, Sam Hearn and Arron Morgan ensured victory over Sandwell, East Newport and Ipswich. Sandwell's Matt Smith was the final's highest scorer but it wasn't enough to help his team secure victory. East Newport, who brought a very noisy crowd, rode well for their third place with strong rides from Ryan Lewis and Aaron Hughes. Ipswich rode their semi final well to secure a place in the final but weren't strong enough in the final to take the spoils.
