West Norfolk AC athletes travelled to Luton for the first round of the Southern Athletics League.

With a weakened team due to injury many personal best performances were recorded despite the windy conditions.

Ben Collison was pleased with his fourth place 800m in 2.20 with Neil Watson running an excellent 5000m in 20:10.5 and John Greenhalgh ran a 6.10 1500m competitively.

West Norfolk’s sprints had a difficult day racing with a strong headwind.

But Matthew Bailey had a well-deserved 110m Hurdles win in 16.5 seconds and in good competitive performances on field, James Greenhalgh showed good form in the 400m Hurdles and 110m Hurdles with Rahim Benson running a storming B string 400m hurdles victory (64.3). Cameron Ross continued his good run of form and clinched more vital points in the 100m and 200m and Adam Dewdney picked up vital points in the Javelin, 100m and 200m B string.

The team heads back to Luton for the second round in May.
