The competitive track season closes this weekend with the club junior and senior pentathlon, the events being 220 yds, 1 mile, long jump, javelin and discus.
The weather has been against consistent training but several senior members have achieved success in open championship, events.
Club captain Len Platt failed once again to be chosen for representative teams abroad, despite consistent, efforts. He retained the long jump, high jump and hop, step and jump Cheshire titles, and the Northern long jump, but lost the hop step, and jump. Representing the A.A.A. at Cardiff in May he won his two events and was also a member of the relay team.
His best performances this season were undoubtedly before his home town supporters at the Wallasey gala, when he returned 9.8 secs for the 100 yds. and leaped 23 ft 8 ins, in the long jump. Following these successes he has had bad health and has been laid-off athletics for a season. We all wish him well, and a quick return.
Ray Owen gained 3rd place in the Cheshire discus and javelin events, Maurice Price finished 3rd in the open 100 yds handicap at Chester on August Bank Holiday Monday. Next season if he maintains this years improvement, should see him troubling the best.
At the conclusion of the Club Championships the following headed the tables,
The 'best performance' award was won by M. Price with his 10 secs. 100 yds.
