The club narrowly missed a place in the Promotion match in two weeks' time,
despite a brilliant effort from a scratch team who dealt with absences through
injury, illness, holidays and other factors, with a performance which
demonstrated good club spirit and commitment. Bearing in mind that at the start
of the season the club would have regarded third place as optimistic, to finish
ahead of LPS, Liverpool and Leigh was a major achievement on which we can build
in 2011. The results will be sent by PDF as soon as they are available. In the
interim they be accessed on the Northern Athletics website under the track and
We had several club records including 12.21 in the shot putt by
Gary Ireland, a new junior steeplechase record of 10.12.7
by John Ashcroft, Stan Erlam becoming the oldest person to
represent the club closely followed by Kenny Williams, who only came to
watch but stepped up to the mark in both sprints.
