Nicholas PWow – What a result!!! A fantastic team performance saw the senior athletics team win the final fixture of the season.

The star performance of the day came from Nicholas Pryce who broke his own club record in the 100m with a time of 10.6, won his 200m and 400m races, recorded a 30m javelin throw and finished the day off with superb legs in the relays. What a day!!!

Kane Howitt scored stacks of points in the sprints and jumps, Lana Partridge and Megan McBrien dominated the middle distance races, whilst our throwers (Kevin Brown, Connor Notley, Graham Felton, Chrissie Prince, Lorna Foster and Fiona Smith) were all superb. In particular, Chrissie recorded fantastic wins in the shot putt and discus. Special mention also to Vici Richardson who ran a great 3k to win us 5 points only a few days after completing a 24 hour endurance race.

There were club records for Andrea Deathridge (W40 400m hurdles – 84.6), Fiona Smith (W50 Women Hammer (4Kg) – 25.72m), Graham Felton (M65 Hammer (7.26 Kg) – 18.81m) and Nick Corker (M35 3k steeplechase 10.01.8).

In summary, everyone contributed hugely with many people competing in multiple events and others competing in new events (both on Saturday and throughout the season). A fantastic team effort – Well done everyone!!!

1500mThanks as always to our officials and supporters who braved the at times apocalyptic conditions. As always your efforts are greatly appreciated!!!
