T &F Seniors Finish Top of Northern League Div.2

West Cheshire AC will head to Yorkshire on Sunday week as Northern Track and Field League divisional champions.
The Chester and Ellesmere Port clubs senior squad clinched the Division Two West title at their final league match held at Wavertree, Liverpool.
The club will now prepare to compete in the Division One Play-Off match to be staged at Cudworth, near Barnsley, on Sunday, August 15.
Multi-eventers Dave McKay, John Manning, and Niamh Reilly scored the bulk of their clubs all-important points tally to wrap up a memorable league campaign.
McKay and Manning both completed their punishing schedule of events nursing injuries after posting a series of pleasing performances to secure their club the title.
McKay launched the javelin to a winning mark of 54.71m, and powered his way to 38.15m for second spot in the hammer; 30.67m for third B in the discus; and 11.25m for second position in the shot.
Manning, who achieved 21.80m with a standing throw to merit fifth B in the javelin after injuring his hamstring, had catapulted himself to a new personal best height of 3-20m in the pole vault; clocked 71.1 seconds for fifth B in the 400m hurdles; and long jumped 5.66m for fourth position.
Reilly won the javelin with a throw of 33.26m, and added further points from the 800m (fourth B with 3:01.8); the hammer (second B with 18.19m); the discus (22.24m for fourth place); the shot (8.22m for fourth spot); and the high jump (1-30m for fourth position).
The hard-working trio were supported by A string winners Emily Clarke (5.12m in the long jump, and 10.02m in the triple jump); Shona Valentine (27 seconds in the 200m), and Gemma Hale (70.9 seconds in the 400m hurdles).

B string successes were registered by Stephen Jones (11.5/100m and 23.4/200m); Jordan Knox (5.64m/long jump); Ali Burkett (13.0/100m, and 27.0/200m); and Shona Valentine (8.92m/triple jump).
