WARRINGTON Athletics Club’s veterans were in top form at the Northern Masters Championships on Saturday.

David Gill in particular was unstoppable in Sheffield, picking up three gold medals.

Gill won the 100m, 100m hurdles and 400m hurdles races in the over 55s category.

Julie Hicken was also successful over sprint distances as she picked up silver medals in the 100m and 400m races.

Kelly Crossley was competing in the over 35s heptathlon but was unable to complete the competition after landing awkwardly in the high jump event.

Crossley had cleared 1.25 metres before withdrawing having earlier clocked 20.2secs in the 100m hurdles.

Warrington athletes were also well represented at the North West Counties Road Relay Championships in Blackpool, which also incorporated the Cheshire Championships.

Nick Jones recorded the fastest time for a Cheshire athlete in the senior men’s race when he ran for an incomplete team and clocked 21mins 19secs.

Nick’s son Jordan was part of the under 17s men’s team that finished third in the overall competition, but their race was hampered by marshalling errors.

Jones, Joe Buckley and Jack Wadsworth, who finished second in the Cheshire standings, ran vastly different times and, due to the lack of marshals on the course, it is possible they all ran different courses.

The club had two teams in the under 11s girls’ race and they completed a Warrington ‘one-two’ in the Cheshire tournament.

The A team of Harriet Bell, Eva Karalius and Rhiannon Wilkes came home eighth overall in 20mins 50secs, with the B team of Corin Smith, Amelia Smith and Esme Heavey came in seven seconds behind them.

The under 17s women’s team picked up a Cheshire silver medal and fourth placed overall, while there were Cheshire bronzes for the under 11 boys and the under 13s girls A team.

Also in the under 13s, the girls’ B and C teams came fourth and seventh in Cheshire respectively, and 21st and 29th overall, while the boys squad finished 12th overall and fourth in Cheshire.

Elsewhere, Jack Green was in action on the continent as he finished 59th at the Birel Prague 10km race by clocking 34mins 38secs.
