T&F League Match 2- Jarrow – 4th June 2017
Report by Dave Aspin
Where were you? If you are an U17 or above and did not attend get in touch with Stewart Hart to take part in the next event. Never done it before, don’t think you are good enough: get in touch for a chat as all the athletes who took park had a great time, even me, despite being lapped twice in the 5000m!
Some great individual results including Ben Holden with PB’s in the 100m 11.3 and 200m 23.2. Kath Aspin ran her all time best aged graded race (88.32%) on her way to a 3000m PB of 11:05:08 which places her 4th in the V50 UK rankings following this up with 5:26.2 in the 1500m putting her 6th in the UK Rankings.
Georgia Noble and Samantha O’Hara made their New Marske debuts and both enjoyed it! Hannah Raine made her senior debut throwing a PB in the Javelin. Trish Speedie had a PB in the 800m 2:57.7, Eli Barnbrook PB also in the 800m 2:33.4 and PB’s for Kellen Hadfeld 200m 25.3, Adam Walker Triple Jump 9.14m and Ian Howse Shot 8.81m and Hammer 21.06m .
None of this could have been achieved without our Track officials, Kev Speedie, Jean Cole, Julian Wilkinson, John Hutton, Helen Jones and Toby Jones.
Apologies to anybody I have missed.
Looking forward to seeing more members at the next event!
NEYDL Jarrow Match 2 21/05/17
Report from Helen Jones
Congratulations everyone who competed today in the above match.
All the coaches and parents were very proud of everyone who was there, they gave 100%. Over 30 PB’s that we know of to date. By the end of the long day the group were buzzing they had become a team.
I will start with congratulations to the pole vaulters as unfortunately the batteries on the camera went flat and their efforts were not captured. They got maximum points in all catagories for NMH. They also got 2 PB’s and a league record, so well done to Matthew and Sophie Brining, Matty Walker and Lucas Pentland.

Report by Charles Burke
At the recent NE indoor athletic championships, Jordan and Molly Thrower both came away with medals. Molly had an excellent weekend, winning gold on the Saturday in the U13 girls long jump and then on Sunday winning gold again in the U13 girls 60m hurdles. Molly also ran well in the 60m finishing 4th. Jordan jumped a personal best of 4-81m in the U17 girls long jump to take the bronze medal. She also ran 5th in the hurdles and ran 2nd in the B final of the 60m. Elicia Smith finished 3rd in the same race and also jumped a grade 4 triple jump of 9-46m in her first competition at that event. She finished 6th in the 60m hurdles.
On the Saturday, Sophie and Matthew Brining competed. Matthew winning the U17 boys pole vault with a clearance of 3-80m. Unfortunately he also suffered a broken ankle when attempting 4m. Sophie jumped an equal pb in the U15 girls high jump with 1-20m and followed that up with a 3-60m long jump.
Matthew Walker had a busy weekend starting with the U15 boys high jump, claiming 3rd place with a jump equalling pb of 1-45m then long jumped 4-40m. On Sunday he ran the 60m in 8.6sec.
However, apart from Molly, the star of the weekend was Amy Carter setting a new Championship Best Performance of 8.84secs in the U17 girls 60m hurdles. A time which puts her 5th in the UK at that event. Brilliant Amy. Amy also ran 8.09 in the 60m to finish 3rd.
Seven athletes, seven medals, WELL DONE ALL OF YOU.

Later in the day Rebecca Tilley added to the gold medal total in the U15 bgirls 3000m, followed by another gold from Libby Currie jumping into a cold, gusting headwind to secure a win. Libby also finished 4th in the U13 girls 200m, 4th in the high jump and 6th in the 100m. Day two on Sunday saw Jordan Thrower secured NMHs fifth gold of the championships winning the U15 girls hammer.

Many congratulations and a big thank you to them all for representing their club in the NE Championships in a weekend of quality competition. Any photos from the weekend please forward to Dave Aspin to include alongside the report.
I am sure that all members who know her, will be wishing our potential NE medal winning prospect (after her performances during the indoor season ), Elicia Smith a full recovery and a return to training and competition. Best wishes, and get well soon Elicia.
