Last Saturday's sport was centred at Liverpool Warehousing Co.'s track at Orrell Park. Some rather harsh handicapping made the task of local runners almost impossible.
H. Lutas, off 11/2 yds. in the youths' 100 yds. did well to qualify for the final, in which he was giving away up to 12 yds. start, and was narrowly beaten out of 3rd place, after coming through very well in the open 100 yds. B. Kivlin won his heat, but found things not in his favour when in the final. J. E. Edwards followed his previous week's victory in the mile, by running second to E. C. Rodgers, Liverpool Harriers, conceding 22 yds. Very good running and promises well for a successful cross-country season for the Liverpool and District champion.
Saturday, July 13th, the A.A.A. hold their Junior Championships at Birmingham. Merseyside have a strong representation and should bring home several titles. V. R. Tindall and J. L. Rennie, of the Wallasey Grammar School, should both do well. The strong Merchant Taylors detachment, including L. T. Taylor. K. S. Cain and J. B. Baughan and the Wirral A.C.'s, A.J.S. Topham - S. Veele should also be well to the fore.
