FIELD EVENTS SHOW THE WAY AS SOUTHERN MEN PLACE THIRD 

Men's Southern League Division 3, Thurrock 4 August 2001

Havering Mayesbrook ACs Southern Mens team performed creditably in their final league match at Thurrock on Saturday and a third place finish was enough to guarantee safety for another season.  In a close fought match, the home club took the honours with 142pts followed by Cambridge with 122pts with Havering Mayesbrook just six points away on 116pts ahead of Diss and London Irish.

HMACs field athletes were in fine form with Brett Heath and Steve Archer leading the way, doubling-up in the Shot and Discus events to take maximum points. Heath also gained valuable points in the Pole Vault and Javelin whilst Juniors Kevin Deacon (a new personal best in the Hammer) and Andrew Tierney (Javelin, Triple Jump and a new personal best in the Hammer) contributed well.

There was another A and B string double success in the High Jump through Steven Prady and Mark Connelly, both recruited from the under-17 ranks. Prady also took third place in the Long Jump with Heath winning the B event.

On the track, Kevin Benton maintained his good form, equalling his personal best in taking the 400m Hurdles with Jason Lendon winning the B event. Benton also finished second in the sprint hurdles, as did Heath in the B event. There were also good points earned by Neil Collins and Martin Chester (1500m) and Lendon and Rob Warner (3000m Steeplechase).
