The annual curtain raiser for outdoor track and field athletics in the North East took place at Shildon last Sunday with the Anne Marie Redshaw Open meeting taking place in cold and blustery conditions.

The under 11 boys saw three medal winning performances from Robert Savage. Savage won the 600 metres by some margin, in under 2 minutes before taking second places in the 150 metres and long jump. Making it a winning family double Benjamin Savage won the cricket ball throw with an excellent 38.97 and Benjamin Johnson placed third in the long jump.

Moving up to the under 13 boys section the Middlesbrough AC duo of Hedley Wordsworth and Nathan Gordon-Wood provided the highlights on the track and in the field.
