NYAL – 16th May, Witton Park, Blackburn

A total of 38 athletes turn out for the 2nd fixture in this season’s National Young Athletes League.

This fixture saw Horwich pitted against the teams from Ribble Valley and Border and coming into the meeting with their 1st win of the season already secured at Sheepmount on the 2nd May.

The Horwich contingent were quick out of the blocks , pardon the pun, to gain an early lead with wins in the U13G, U13B and U15B hurdles.

Further wins came thick and fast in the U13G and U13B 800m and the U13G 75m and U17G 100m events. Numerous wins later saw Horwich take victory in this 2nd fixture with a total of 561 points to Border on 403.5 points and Ribble Valley on 329.5 points.

Well done to all those who took part and a very big thank you to all those who gave their time to undertake official’s duties which in it’s self provided 60 valuable points.

Full results of the fixture will appear on the NYAL website very soon.
