Along side 30 heats of racing, the double-header also gave the fans their chance to congratulate the Diamond they thought had shone above the rest, and it was Steve Worrall who took the trophy for the third season in succession!
With referee, Graham Flint in attendance as a spectator, he was given the three envelopes which held the result of the fans public vote taken at the previous Byker meeting.
Once the votes had been independently counted and verified, in reverse order third placed Robert Lambert was announced ahead of second - for the second season running - Ashley Morris taking silver before Worrall was presented with the Newcastle Speedway Diamond of the Year trophy - for a record-breaking third year in a row....and well deserved it was too!
