Southern Men’s League 5th August at Bracknell

A solid third place in the last league match of the season left the men’s team in 16th place in division two, safely clear of relegation. 
There were only four event wins for Walton but a lot of good performances meant many 2nds and 3rds.
The return of Josh Davis strengthened the throwing events and two of the event wins were in the shot where Josh won teh A string and Simon Percival with a pb of 10.66 won the B. Josh had two 3rd places and a 4th in teh other throws but that promoted Simon and Kevin Shepherd to 2nd in the B string Discus and Javelin.
Ramon Wright and Mark Partidge ran well in the high standard sprint races. John Redshaw knocked 2.5s off his 800m pb and Steve Mills ran a seasons best time in the B string. John then ran a good 1500m with John Marsden running a seasons best in the B race.
Walton’s other wins were in the 5000m where James Harvey and Jon Brine ran well judged races to overtake the early leaders in both the A and B strings. Jon Brines time was a pb.
In the Steeplechase James and Jon dopubled up again for two 2nd places wioth James running sub 10 minutes for the first time this season.
Adam McCarthy equalled his pb for 2nd place in the sprint hurdles with Stuart Fawcett 3rd in the B race. Adam and Stuart also teamed up in the 400m hurdles and the pole vault.
