JAMIE RICHARDSON has earned a top 20 spot in the UK under 15 boys cross country ranking list.

The talented West Cheshire Athletic Club teenager secured 17th position in the rankings produced by Athletics Weekly magazine thanks to his ninth-placed finish at Loughborough in the UK Inter Counties Championships.

He was one of 14 club members to complete a 5km run between Saturday, April 4 and Wednesday, April 8, and then uploading the Strava/Garmin performance online by April 9.

Morrison, who was the 17th fastest under 20 man after posting 15 minutes 11 seconds, was backed up by Michael Young (16:26); Tom Booth (17:08); Andrew Cooper (17:30); Steve Fernyhough (17:59); Danny Paddock (18:09); Andy Carter (18:40); Rob Little (18:59); Steve King (19:03); Richard Hayes (19:27); Phil Woodley (19:51); Dave Irving (20:36); Kerry Riley (21:07); and Kay Hayes (31:01). 

NORTHERN ATHLETICS have provided an update about three scheduled track and field championship fixtures.

The Senior and under 20 Championships, due to be held at Wavertree, Liverpool, on June 27 and 28, has been postponed subject to further decisions being made regarding the end of the Covid-19 epidemic and fixture arrangements and advice from UK Athletics.

The under 17 and under 15 Inter County Championships, due to be held at York University Stadium on July 5 has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled because county team selections will not be possible due to the cancellation of County Championships.

And no decision has yet been taken about the under 17, under 15, and under 13 Championships, due to be held at Costello Stadium, Hull, on August 15 and 16, but updates will be posted on the Northern Athletics website and Facebook page.

THE British Track and Field Championships at the Manchester Regional Arena have been rescheduled from its original date of June 20 and 21 to August 8 and 9.
