The National Junior League team produced an impressive all-round performance to win their second round Thames Division fixture at Basildon on Sunday, finishing five points clear of Ipswich with the hosts and Norwich close behind.

There was another strong result from the women, with win doubles from Georgie Sales & Zoey Littlechild (3000m - both PBs), Emma Christmas (who won the athlete of the match award) & Sales again (javelin), and Lauren Clark & Catrina McAuliffe (discus). Lisa Schofield provide the other win in the 100m hurdles and was 2nd in the 400m hurdles event. Becky Owen supported well with a second & third hurdles placings. Katie Richardson helped out with long & triple jump points as well as third place in the 800m, and Ingrid Deane was 3rd in the 800m B. Robyn Matson was a good 2nd in the 1500m (& 3rd in the B hammer!),  with Jenny Holland 3rd in the B 1500, Lauren Newton was 2nd in the B shot. Useful points werre added by Leah Summers in long jump & 100m, and Hayley Pegg 400m.

There was a stronger showing from the men, who covered virtually everything this time, several stepping in to score in unfamiliar events at short notice.

Winning performances came from the 110m hurdles pair Anthony Williams & David Creedon on his debut against older opposition while the strong duo of Bonne Buwembo & Georgie Bean (who had competed at Ashford that morning) took both javelin strings.

There were five other B string wins, two to Craig Moore who answered the team managers' call to cover a vacant high jump slot to pick up full points & he also won the B discus and ran a good relay leg. John Whitehead set a PB to win the B 1500m, just behind Daniel Winters PB in the A string, and Kieran Nelson's made a winning debut at the senior 400m hurdles.

Rob Jones ran well with a good 800m 2nd spot & smashed his steeplechase PB for3rd in the A, with Grant Twist winning the B. Joseph Ramie bagged a pair of 2nd spots in 200m (PB) and triple jump, while hard working Jordan Jackson was second in the discus, as was Vincent Lazaro in the long jump. Josh Dunne completed the squad with valuable 800m points.

With first round winners Basildon back in third and runners up Bedford back in fifth the division is wide open and Havering are now second behind Basildon, with a place in the promotion match up for grabs with good results in the final two fixtures.
