National Junior Men's League, Thames Division, Dartford 12 August 2001

Throwers lead the way

Havering Mayesbrook ACs junior men concluded their first season in the National Junior League for many years with an excellent third place in their match at the Dartford Harriers track on Sunday. Not surprisingly, the match was won by the home club (the League leaders) with 282pts with Basildon AC second on 242pts just five points ahead of Havering Mayesbrook with Thurrock, Bexley, Woodford Green and Southend behind.

The throwers once again led the way with wins for Kevin Deacon (Hammer), Tom Melrose (B Shot) and Andrew Tierney (B Discus). Tierney finished top points scorer including new personal bests in the Triple Jump and B Hammer. Deacon also set new personal best figures in the Shot and Melrose took second place in the Discus.

In an exciting high jump competition with the winner from Basildon clearing 2.05m, Steven Prady equalled his personal best to take second place with 1.90m.

Other B string winners were Andrew Hunter (a new personal best in the Triple Jump), Peter Phillips in the High Jump with a new pb of 1.65m and Peter Jones in the B 400m Hurdles. Phillips also took second in the A 400m Hurdles.

The sprinters were below par with Andy Green not yet race fit following a hamstring injury.

The result leaves Havering Mayesbrook in third place in the League with Team Manager John Deacon pleased with the overall performance. A small squad restricted us somewhat but third place in our first season is encouraging. With a stronger team next season, we must stand a reasonable chance of winning the League.
