BATTLING FOR HONOURS
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.
