A great turn out for Middlesbrough on a Sunny Sunday at Monkton. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the stadium with many teams turning up to compete T&F. We all enjoyed the day and it was great to see our athletes competing, as a first time NEYDL manager. I hope I haven’t missed anything out but if I have, please do email me!

U13 Boys

Fantastic effort from Ben Naivaluruia, finishing a comfortable 1st position in the U13 100m and 2nd position in the 200m for the A string. A big well done to Akinjide Buluro who finished at 4th in the U13 100m for the B string and 4th in the 200m 3rd heat. Akinjide also took to a field event, coming 2nd place in the Javelin B-string.

A huge well done to Theo Gowland, finishing 2nd in the 200m B string, 3rd in the 75mH A string and 4th in the Javelin A string.

It’s good to see the u13 boys enjoying both track and field events for the team.

The 3 boys worked really hard during the day. Hopefully soon we will see the 3 joined by a 4th and enter a 4 x 100m relay!
