Ashley Reece smashed the club u15 boys' 3000m record with a stunning 9m 11.4 secs clocking in winning the Essex Champs race at Southend on Saturday.

Young athletes reclaim EYAL Trophy 
A brilliantly sunny late summer afternoon had a perfect finish at Bedford today when the combined girls' and boys' team reclaimed the EYAL Trophy. With the lead changing hands all afternoon it was all down to the relays and HMAC did enough to take the silverware by 5.5 points, ahead of joint runners-up Chelmsford and hosts Bedford. It was a day for PBs and results in the clubs all-time list. Ashley Reece's 800m took him to 4th on the u15B list, while Ingrid Deane went 6th on the u13g 800m list. Newcomer Adam Edobar went close to 12m in the triple jump for 5th on the all-time u15 lists, while Frankie Calder's 100m & 200m PBs hit the u13g  rankings.

Men drop back into Southern League
Despite a near-superhuman effort from team captain Mark Bishop the senior men's team placed fourth in the BAL qualifier at Abingdon yesterday. They will now drop back into Southern League Division 1. Bish contested seven events, winning the pole vault but with Leo Barker out (hamstring) it was always going to be tough. Other wins came from Matt Russell (200m), Des English (800m), Kevin Tufton (B vault), Sam Harrison (B javelin) and hammer pairing of Kevin Deacon and Danny Gamester. Team Manager John Maley praised his team's efforts but a few more quality results not only on the day but throughout the season would have been needed to avoid the drop.   added 14/09/03

Four individual victories and three team wins marked a golden start to 2004 as HMAC athletes starred at the Essex Young Athletes Cross Country Championships at Basildon today. The u13 boys were impressive winners as Matt Bloy showed great tactical awareness to win clearly in by 10 seconds from the fast finishing Steve MacLachlan who just caught the unlucky Grant Twist on the line to give HMAC 1-2-3.

Essex Cup win for men in North of Thames

Havering Mayesbrook's senior men pulled out all the stops to complete a team to win the Essex Cup at the North of Thames Cross Country Championships for the first time since 1976 at Alexandra Palace Park on Saturday. The trophy is awarded to the first Essex Club to finish twelve runners with the lowest score in this annual competition and the local squad became the first Essex Club since 1999 to achieve this feat and the last and only time that Havering won the team trophy was in 1976, before many of the team was born.  The rapidly improving Robert Warner turned in an excellent performance to be first clubman home in 18th but the team’s success was owed to far from fit Pat Gahagan who stepped in as a last minute replacement to give the team the chance of success. HMAC results: 18 Robert Warner, 27 Gavin Maley, 31 Rob Dickenson, 36 Jason Lendon, 42 Graham Pritchard, 47 Matthew Bland, 52 Martin Heys, 56 Chris Coates, 62 Steve Julien, 66 Tony Collins, 83 Gary Howard, 96 Patrick Gahagan. added 21/12/03 

Kate & Debbie lead way in senior rankings
Internationals Kate Brewington & Debbie Sullivan scooped the local headlines when the UK senior rankings were published this week. Kate is ranked in the heptathlon and also three individual events. Her club record heptathlon score of 5557 points  places her fifth, while she places 11th in the long jump (6.09/6.12w), 16th in the hurdles (13.95s/13.9 hand timed), and also makes the high jump top 50 (1.72m).  Club captain Debbie Sullivan doesn't make the track lists but more than makes amends with high road race rankings in four events, ranked 7th with her marathon debut (2m 44:55), 10th in the half marathon (74m 57s), 8th at 10 miles (56m 20s) and also ranking at 10km (34m 27s).  Junior international Faye Fullerton almost matched her more experienced colleagues appearing in three lists, making the top 30 in the 1500m, and also ranked in 3000m and 800m. Sarah Deacon's record-breaking season took her to 20th in the hammer rankings while Lynsey Clark's 40.90m discus PB took her into the senior top 50 while still an u17, with Mel Harrison (39.86m) also ranked in this event. Another u17 to make the senior top 50 was Chloe van Wulven who made the high jump lists with her 1.70m clearance. The men's dismal season is reflected in the UK rankings: no club man has made the top 50 this year.  added 20/12/03

Neill and Tony Collins strike gold in Edinburgh
Neill and Tony Collins shared in the international spotlight with Faye Fullerton in Edinburgh last weekend. Both won individual medals and led their England teammates to gold in the Scottish Disability Sports Championships 3km race for athletes with learning disabilities, held in conjunction with the European Cross Country Championships. Neill put in a superb performance to win gold by over 20 secs in 10m 08 secs, with older brother Tony winning bronze 26 secs behind. Both are now aiming to compete for Great Britain in the world championship event in South Africa but as learning disability is currently not on the paralympic programme and receives no external funding, the athletes currently have to finance their own international trips to compete for their country. In July they will once again represent Great Britain at the Learning Disability Global Games in Sweden. In each case the cost is around £1200 per athlete. If you are interested in helping Neill and Tony and their teammates at ESAPLD (English Sports Association for People with Learning Disability), please call Chief Executive Nick Parr on 08451 298992, email nick@esapld.co.uk or speak to Kathy Collins at the track  added 20/12/03

And she was rewarded for her brilliant run when the GB Junior team won team gold, Charlotte Dale was third, Dani Barnes 9th and Aine Hoban 15th. A foot injury had restricted her training but it didn't show as she followed the leaders' pace throughout. She said immediately after the race “I’m really pleased! I wanted to finish in the top ten initially and then in the top five as I got fitter this winter. But after the Trial at Liverpool, I had to really ease off the training [as a precaution]. The crowd encouraged me; there were lots of faces I knew. I had a bad patch at the beginning of the second lap but then I picked up again, relaxed and just kept the momentum going. I was all-in coming into the finish, but knowing we had a Team medal kept me going.”  added 14/12/03
