At the Northern Counties A.A. championships meeting at Stockton-on-Tees, last Saturday, Barney Kivlin, of Wallasey Athletic Club, again put up a good all round performance to gain 4th place in the hop, step and jump and hurdle events.
Kivlin was unlucky to miss his hop, step and jump stand-ard medal this year by a fraction of an inch.
On the same day at Crewe L.M.S. Open Sports his club mate, Denis Dickinson, registered another fine per-formance by finishing second in the handicap mile off 150 yds. In 4 mins. 16 secs. The winner was Hesketh, of Manchester A.C., the Northern Counties Youths Cross-Country champion; Dickinson beat Gratton, the Macclesfield and Cheshire Cross-Country representative, into 3rd place.
