WCAC in the top flight at last!

WEST CHESHIRE AC seniors will compete in the top flight of the Northern League next year.

The Stanney Oaks-based squad have been crowned North of England Track and Field League Division Two champions after winning the Promotion Match at Doncaster.

The purple-vested outfit, who were crowned Division Two West title winners earlier this month, will now prepare during the winter months for life in Division One for the first time ever.

Team managers Dave McKay and Jenny Manning were delighted to see the squad celebrate having failed to achieve promotion in the past despite winning six consecutive Division Two West titles.

McKay played a key role in helping his club secure success by appearing in no fewer than seven events which featured a winning throw of 60.67m in the javelin, alongside Mike Lyness, who pocketed vital points from six events.

Road runners Bob Benson, Andrew Clague, Anest Muller, and Lisa Davies also played pivotal roles on the track.

And the day was concluded in style when Danielle Erskine, Shona Valentine, Olivia Montez-Brown, and Victoria Smith teamed up to clock a winning time of four minutes 21.2 seconds in the 4x400m relay.
