National Junior League On Tenterhooks
Glasgow was the venue for the 4th fixture of the National Junior
League Premier Division that offers top level competition for our
U/17 - U/20 men and women. A most spirited performance by the club
saw us secure third place behind Team Edinburgh and Team Glasgow.
Olivia Callaghan's brilliant sprint
double, soon after her England Schools sprint Gold & England
Schools bronze, was a notable highlight, as
were Jack Andrew's exploits in
the high hurdles, long jump and discus plus a 50.13secs final leg
in the 4x400m.
Sixteen year old Andrew Wort, made a
fine debut setting pb's in the long jump and Javelin and
2nd place in the PV. He was matched by
James Davies's mammoth points
total earned in the high jump, javelin, shot, hurdles and
discus and Ryan Worland's treble in
the 800m, 3000m and then heroically winning the 'B' steeplechase as
he was badly injured clipping a steeplechase barrier. The women of
the match award went to Dianne Bentley for her 44m
72cm Javelin throw.
The top 2 teams (Northern, Southern, and Midlands) automatically
qualify for the final, to be held at Derby in September. The team
must wait on tenterhooks whether their results attained over the
season, after being entered into a paper match with the
runner-up clubs in the South and Midlands to be awarded one of the
2 remaining places in the final.
