Many of the junior members of the club came along to this year’s junior presentation evening to either receive an award or support their fellow athletes. The occasion is the junior sections big social event on the calendar with the ceremony being preceded by a mass game of rounders and the evening was finished off with a BBQ meal and, off course, sunshine prevailed.

Cross Country Champions – U11 Boys Zane Seddon, U11 Girls Rebecca Tate, U13 Girls Hollie Winstanley, U15 Girls Ella Moulding.

The Coaches’ Cup which is awarded to the athlete who, in the opinion of the coaches, has shown the highest level of dedication to the sport, was awarded to Simon Holt.
The final race of the series of summer handicap races saw some fantastic performances with six runners recording personal best times. Sisters Cleme and Hebe Tierney, on their first visit to the club, ran brilliantly to finish 1st and 2nd respectively. Ellie Butterworth finished third with a personal best time with the other PB’s being run by; Celin Kirk, James Elmsley, Ruby Hodgkinson, Harry Talbot and Louis Hardman.
Ruby Hodgkinson’s fourth consecutive personal best time was rewarded with a move into the top position in the table and so she will be awarded with the championship shield at the forthcoming presentation ceremony. Shay Menzies finished runner up with Elsie Dalton in third place.

Matthew Tattersall was first past the post in the fourth Summer Handicap Race and he was closely followed by newcomer Daniel Butterworth in second place with Harry Talbot finishing 3rd. There were marvellous performances all-round with seven runners recording personal best times around the 1 kilometre course. Shay Menzies leads the overall points table but with two races left to run it is anyone’s guess as to who will be awarded the trophy next month.
