BAT­TLING FOR HON­OURS

DI­VI­SION 3

WITH Rugby & Northamp­ton slip­ping on the day, match win­ners Haver­ing now lead the league ta­ble and any two of these, Chelms­ford and Notts can still gain pro­mo­tion.

Down at the bot­tom the Derby and Mans­field combo are al­ready doomed.

One of the best ef­forts from this di­vi­sion came in the 100m where Yeovil’s diminu­tive Ron­nie Wells scam­pered to a 10.48 100m win in the wet. Like all the sprint­ers, he had trou­ble get­ting early grip and said: “On the third stride I had no bal­ance.”

Robert Need­ham posted a mid­dle-dis­tance dou­ble for Notts, adding the 1500m af­ter an 800m win in 1:52.28.

Pre­vi­ous round win­ners Rugby again saw the con­sis­tent Craig Murch add the ham­mer with a 68.31m but match win­ners Haver­ing had just two A-string vic­to­ries as Ramie Joseph took the long jump with a mod­est 6.91m and Duane Ji­bunoh the dis­cus.

Be­side Wells, mid-ta­ble Yeovil also had An­drew Faulkner add the 400m hur­dles in a down­pour and Glenn Ether­ing­ton the high jump, as they fin­ished third on the day.
