FOUR of Warrington Athletics Club’s brightest talents will represent Cheshire at the English Schools Athletics Championships next week.

Ashley Nemits will run in the junior girls 300m – a distance over which she is ranked number one in the UK – while Meg Corker will compete in the 75m hurdles in the same age group.

For the intermediate boys, Jordan Jones has been chosen for the 1500m steeplechase, while training partner Joe Buckley will run in the 3000m.

All four athletes will head to Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium for the event, which gets underway on July 13.

Jones goes into the event in good form having set a new best 1500m time at last week’s Trafford Grand Prix.

He finished second in the under 17s race in 4mins 6.09secs, with Buckley also clocking a new best time of 4mins 13.12secs to come home eighth.

Over the same distance, under 20s runner Jack Wadsworth won race three in 4mins 19.86secs, with training partner Isaaq Ataullah just behind him in second.

Joel Birchall finished 10th in race four, as did Amy Nuttall in race five.

Meanwhile, plenty of Warrington athletes competed in sweltering conditions on home soil in the Cheshire Schools Minor Championships at Victoria Park.

For the girls, Shauna Clarke won a 200m silver medal with a new best time of 29.7secs, while Lucie Davies just missed out on an 800m medal as she finished fourth.

Emily Entwistle ran well to finish fifth in the 1500m.

Erik Marshall was the only medallist for the boys as he won silver in the 1500m by clocking 4mins 55.8secs.

Clubmate Ben Pucill was not far behind in sixth as he ran a new personal best time of 5mins 18.2secs.

Dominiks Norviss finished joint fourth in the high jump, while a personal best throw of 23.15m in the javelin was enough to secure sixth place for Steven Chesterman.

On Sunday, David Gill added another Masters title to his burgeoning collection at the Joan Rhodes and Fred Norris Memorial race in Radcliffe.

The race also incorporated the Northern Masters 5km multi-terrain championships, and Gill’s time of 20mins 2secs was enough to win him the over 60s title.

Closer to home, Steve Watmough claimed an over 55s victory at the Alderley Edge Bypass 10km road roace on Sunday.

He finished in 35mins 44secs, which ranked him 12th overall.
