Sherman Cup & Davison Shield Results

Hi Folks,

Results for the weekends first NEHL Fixture of the new year, held at Temple Park on Saturday 5th January may be found on the harrier league website.  Many congrats to all who took part.

Individual winners as follows:

U11 Girls - Poppy Wilde, Elswick Harriers
U11 Boys - Zac Brannon, Morth Shields Poly
U13 Girls - Charlotte Dillon, Durham City
U13 Boys - Tom Slane, Blackhill Bounders
U15 Girls - Katie Francis, Birtley
U15 Boys - Christopher Perkins, Birtley
U17&20 Women - Holly Peck, Morpeth
U17 Men - Will Bellamy, Houghton
Senior Women - Laura Weightman, Morpeth
Senior Men - Carl Smith, Tyne Bridge
Masters Women (35+) - Gemma Floyd, Morpeth
Masters Men (40+) - Robert Walker, Sunderland Harriers

In the team events Morpeth dominated both the cup and the shield finishing with only 10 points in the cup, and 18 points in the shield.

Laura Weightman led from the outset in the senior womens race, comfortably winning in 20:49 ahead of team mate Emma Holt 22:28 across the 3.8 mile course.  With four Morpeth senior women in the top ten, and 3 more masters 35+ women in the top twenty, it was a clear victory in both categories.  Their weakest category was the under 13 girls, finishing 11th overall, but they made up for it in the under 15s (3rd) and under 17&20s (2nd) with Holly Peck recording the individual gold.

The Sherman Cup was an easier victory that the Shield, with Morpeth claiming victory in the first three races, then second in the senior men (behind Tynebridge), and 5th in the masters men, to finish with a 10 point total.

Well done to both teams!

Team medals and the trophies will be presented at NEHL Thornley at the next fixture.
