Tin­kler pro­vides South­ern com­fort

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Sport - By BOB FRANK bob.frank@jpress.co.uk @Et­bobfrank

RE­CENT sign­ing Martin Tin­kler recorded four wins to at least pro­vide some com­fort as Nene Val­ley Har­ri­ers fin­ished last in their South­ern League match at Steve­nage.

Tin­kler, a for­mer English Schools bronze medal­list who joined from ri­vals Peter­bor­ough Ath­letic Club this year, was in su­perb form in the throws where Ken Baker weighed in im­pres­sively with a cou­ple of wins - as well as mak­ing a rare ap­pear­ance in the pole vault.

Baker, a for­mer Bri­tish Mas­ters shot putt cham­pion, was one of the lead­ing multi-even­ters in the coun­try as a young­ster but these days re­stricts him­self to the throws.

The Lat­vian Sum­skis twins were both in win­ning form, Edgars run­ning the 3000m for the first time for sev­eral years and tak­ing the A-string - with last week’s Langtoft 10k vic­tor win­ning the B-string - while Ju­ris won the B-string 800m.

In the women’s events, Emily Maltby was in su­perb form with a sprint dou­ble in the A-strings as well as win­ning the B-string long jump while Grace Mullins added yet an­other statis­tic to her im­press list of mid­dle-dis­tance wins.

Vet­er­ans Tracey Lazenby was also in fine form with two wins while Kelly Lawrence took the ham­mer with a fine throw.

RARE 3000m OUT­ING: Edgars Sum­skis.
