Congratulations to Jamie Webb, who not only won the 1500m race in Belgium, but took ¾ of a second of his personal best and went inside the Euro qualifying time of 1:46.50
Jamie’s time of 1:45.73 ranks him 5th in the country.
The first two past the post at the British Championships will automatically qualify for Berlin, if they have the qualifying standard and this will prove to be one of the hottest races in the championships with 8 athletes already inside the required time.
James Williams continued his fine form with a 10.51 100m and a 20.99 200m
Expectations were quite low going into match 2, with the team still relatively inexperienced and lacking in numbers. However on the day, everyone put in fine performances and doubled up where possible and the team finished a very credible 4th place, which is an improvement from the 6th place in match 1.

Similarly to the men, expectations were quite low going into the opening match at Bedford with a very young team and just 11 athletes. The girls were languishing in 6th place for most of the meeting, but a succession of good performances later in the day dragged the team up to fourth.
With a home match to come next, there are high expectations that the team with improve up the table and get into contention for promotion to division 2.
Northern League, Leigh
The Northern league team matched their 4th place finish in the opening fixture at Leigh, although again the team were low in numbers, especially on the ladies side.
The big highlight of the day was U17 Hammer thrower Zoe Price, who added 5 metres to her own club record with the 4kg hammer
