NORTHERN PREMIER LEAGUE -PRESTON
The 3rd Northern Premier league match at Preston was a most welcoming victory.
Mike Floyd, in his first competition for almost 2 years, gave a master class exhibition in the men’s hammer, throwing 59m 50cms.That event heralded other successful comebacks led by Rebekah Wilson ( 25.1s) and Abigayle Fitzpatrick in the 200m ( 25.6s) followed by Jennifer Simmons great 400m hurdles victory. Rebecca Linney dominated the 800m field with a resounding win in 2m 16.1s and 15yr old Claudia Cowan put paid to a senior field clocking 4m 50.1 secs in the 1500m. Other wins were Chloe Doggett in the Pole Vault clearing 3 metres.
The Men completely overwhelmed the opposition with emphatic wins by Danny Heald 21.6ses 200m; Lamiko Thomas 50.2s 400m; Matt Cullen 4m 70cm pole vault; Johnathan Ferryman 13m 27cmTriple jump; Alex Wort 15.6sec 110m Hurdle plus a fine pb win in the Discus; Jack Sheldon freshly back from University won the shot and B discus, whilst Josh Mouland had a plethora of successes with his 3m 80cm Pole vault B the highlight.
All relays were dominated by Sale, and the match showed how strong the club really is, as the British League team were battling successfully in Glasgow at the same time. Full detailed results will be on the power of 10 or the Northern Counties web site.
A very special thanks to photographer Michael Mitchell who’s provided a large number of superb photographs to enjoy from this match...an especially generous gesture considering Mike’s not a Sale Harrier.
