Mickie Simpson contested round two of the Scunthorpe Winter Series - claiming second spot overall.

The 11-year-old Wrangle youngster earned a heat win in round one before coming second behind Bradford’s Harry McGirk in heat two.

After being excluded from heat three after laying it down in the wet conditions, he won heat four before trailing McGirk again in heat five.

This was enough to qualify for the A final in joint second on 10 points, alongside Max Perry.

Also in the final were McGirk, unbeaten all day on a maximum 15 points, and B final winner Jacob Clayton.

McGirk won with Simpson second and Perry third.
