Southern Men’s League 20th May at Cambridge

The journey to the Cambridge University track was rewarded with an excellent win for the senior men.
Some superb individual performances backed up by by a good all round team effort made light of the very poor conditions. As a result of the win Walton move up to 5th place in the league, our highest position since being promoted two years ago. 
Craig Timmings had an amazing day, long jumping and triple jumping further than he has done since his return to athletics eight years ago. He won the long jump and pole vault and was second in the high jump and triple jump. Stuart Fawcett won the B pole vault and triple jump and was equal second in the B high jump. Jon Ladley was third in the B long jump.
The star of the sprints was 15 year old Ramon Wright in his first senior match who won the B string 100m and 200m recording personal best times in both events. Multi eventer Adam McCarthy was 4th and 3rd in  the A string sprint events. Adam also won the sprint hurdles in a personal best time with Stuart Fawcett winning the B race.
The throws were a lot stronger with the return of Josh Davis. Josh was 2nd in the javelin, 3rd in the hammer and discus and 2nd in the B shot, there were wins in the B javelin and hammer for Kevin Shepherd and Jack Rutherford.
Walton cleaned up in the long distance track events with James Harvey winning the 5000m and the steeplechase and Steve Mills winning the B string chase with Jon Brine winning an excellent last lap battle to claim 2nd place in the 5000m.
John Redshaw and Alex Ferrelly ran well agianst strong opposition in teh middle distance races. The match was rounded off with two 2nd places in the relays events.
