We had a very successful weekend with some fantastic performances.

Ethan Milligan leapt to the Northern Under 20 men’s high jump title at SportCity with a jump of 1.88m – 8cm ahead of his nearest rival.

Also at SportCity, Sophie Percival launched the javelin to 39.74m for second spot in the senior women’s competition, Danielle Erskine finished second in the senior women’s long jump event with a leap of 4.93m – just one centimetre behind the eventual winner, and Alice McMahon reached the senior women’s 100m and 200m finals with times of 12.24 seconds and 25.35 seconds for seventh and sixth positions respectively. Well done all of you.

We also finished 34th team overall in the two-day Welsh Castles Road Relay Race.

Ellie Robinson was our first runner in action from Caernarfon Castle and she, supported by a squad of team mates during the 20-stage event.

She was joined by Keely Smith, who  finished third lady on her stage,  Joe Foy, Ian Gloyne Phillips, Peter Smith, Clare Mallon, Dave Alexander, Andrew Clague, Mark Davies, Chris Palmer, George Dewhirst, Andy Dawe, John Parlevliet, Tony Woodall, Bob Little, Andy Carter, Wullie McGarrell, Dan Mitchell, and Julian and Angela Tegg.


Our own fantastic four George Hyde, Daniel Berg, Evie Tipping and Emma Howe all celebrated championship best performances at the Cheshire Schools Track and Field Championships.

George won the intermediate boys shot put title with 16.49m, while Danny 49.12m for victory in the intermediate boys hammer, Evie achieved 44.29m in the junior girls hammer, and Emma launched the intermediate girls javelin to a distance of 46.34m.


Laura Turley, Katie Clarke, Alice Jennings, Ethan Milligan, Danielle Erskine, David McKay and Sophie Percival all took victory at the second round of their Northern Track and Field League Division One home match.


Laura won the B100m in 12.6 seconds, while Katie clocked 10:34.9 in the 3000m, and Alice won both the B100m hurdles (17.5) and B 400m hurdles (71.2).

Ethan cleared 1-90m for success in the high jump, Danielle won the long jump (4.90m), and Dave (50.88m) and Sophie (41.32m) nailed a double success story in the javelin events.

We finished second in the team event and now head to Wigan for round three on Sunday, July 9. Great effort to everyone involved, including our judges officials and helpers on the day.

Rosemary Rogers celebrated an over-60 age group win at the Wirral Seaside 5k Run with a time of 24:03, and won the over-65 lady prize with 24:47 at the Birchwood Brook 5k Race, part of the North Cheshire Grand Prix Series.
