Havering men's squad are back in the promotion hunt after another superb second place finish in their third round British League National 4 match at Exeter. They travel to Chelmsford next month holding down one of the two promotion slots, hoping to regain their Nation Three position.

 

Josh Olawore was the undoubted star of a fine performance with a hat-trick of wins.  The Bath University 19-year-old won the long jump by a huge 65 centimetre margin, smashed his personal best to win the 100m and added 200m victory in his fastest ever time of 21.21s and would have broken the club record had the wind not been a fraction over the allowable limit.

 

Josh’s B string partners all did well with Richard Holland winning the B long jump in a season’s best, Timi Kuye winning the B 200m and Nathan Steele runner up in the 100m.

 

Higher Competition Athlete Chuko Cribb made his debut in club colours with double victory in the high jump & triple jump and further A string field wins came from Laurence Goodacre in the shot and Georgie Bean in the javelin. John Adekoya (triple jump) and Luke Williams (pole vault)  also added their names to the field event victory roll and field event second positions were earned by Ed Thompson (A vault) & Sam Harrison (B javelin).

 

On the track Jason Lendon once again too full points in the B ‘chase as Rob Warner was runner up in the A, as well as third in the 5k, with Matt Bland running well for second in the B 5k. Jamie Buckley-Stanton has his best result of the season with third in the B 1500m and Paul Grange was also third in the A after placing fourth in the 800m. 

 

George Hadler was third in both 100m & 400m hurdles events, as was B string partner Karl Tucker and Billy Rungay added to the score with points in both 400m & 800m.

 

Newquay and Par are guaranteed promotion after a third straight win but Havering must hold off challenges from Portsmouth & final round hosts Chelmsford as the British League season reaches its climax on 8th August.
