Anne Marie Readshaw Open Meeting – Shildon – 13/04/14
The start of the track and field season is here again kicking off with the Anne Marie Readshaw open meeting at Shildon. The highlight for New Marske was in the Men's Senior 3000m with a 1,2,3 for the trio of Russ Best 8:48, Charlie Pasco 8:57 and making his New Marske debut Dean Newton in 9:05. Other highlights included Eleanor Crame 1st u11 60m, Amy Readman 2nd Senior 100m, Matthew Walker 3rd u13 100m, Daniel McBride 1st Senior 100m, Chris Waugh 1st Senior Long Jump, Sam Garrett 2nd u17 3000m and Dominic Shipman 2nd u13 boys 800m. Many other good results which can seen below.

Gold Medal for Amy
Some good results with Amy Carter winning the U15 60m in a new PB of 9.93 seconds. Hannah Raine picked up a Bronze medal in the Shot Putt with a PB of 6.99m and a Silver medal in the long jump with 4.35m. Beth Long picked up a Bronze medal in the U20 60M hurdles and Jess Simon Silver in the U20 Triple Jump.
When the results finally came through late last night – it seemed that New Marske had finished 5th in a very tight contest – but I spotted that a minor error had meant that Beth Long’s high jump score was not included. With less than 30 points separating 1st & 5th it moved us up one place to 4th (we also lost 10 points for not having a timekeeper or track judge otherwise we could have been 3rd!)
This now means we are equal 3-4 on 10 points, 2 above above the second relegation position – which without Beth’s points we would have been in!
We still need to pull out all the stops for the final (home) fixture on Saturday 3rd August – a task not made any easier with holiday commitments!
