The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

The old Masters from Nene Val­ley Har­ri­ers and Peter­bor­ough AC were jump­ing for joy at Corby last Wed­nes­day as both clubs se­cured qual­i­fi­ca­tion for the East­ern Veter­ans League fi­nals (writes Barry Warne).

Peter­bor­ough AC’s men and ladies will both be at Bed­ford for the big day in Septem- ber along with Nene Val­ley’s men. Only the Nene Val­ley ladies missed out.

Pete rb o r oug h AC ladies fin­ished run­ners-up to Welling­bor­ough, but their pas­sage to the final as a top twofin­ish­erinthe­fi­nal­stand­ings was never in doubt.

Ju­dith Jag­ger won four events with her dis­cus throw of 23.14m per­haps the high­light of a busy evening.

Lisa Richard­son had three vic­to­ries to her name, while Wendy Dunn was first in the Over 50 100 and 400m.

Nene Val­ley only se­cured one win, but it was an im­pres­sive per­for­mance as Phillipa Tay­lor­raced­her­way­to­thetop of the na­tional Over 45 mile rank­ings with a speedy 5:27.6 clock­ing.

Nene Val­ley’s men topped the men’s ta­ble ahead of Peter­bor­ough AC, and, as usual, their sprint­ers had a ma­jor role to play. Ricky Huskisson com­fort­ably won the Over 50 100m and 400m, while Dave Brown was first in the Over 35 100m in a blis­ter­ing 51.8.

Sean Ready and Simon Achurch recorded two wins apiece with­JohnSpringswin­ning the Over 60 triple jump.

Karl Eve was the pick of the bunch for Peter­bor­ough ACwitht­wowin­sandt­wosec­ond places while there were track­vic­to­ries­forDaveWhite­head, Phil Martin and Ea­mon Dor­ling. Bush­field’s Phil Martin made short work of his de­fence of the Bri­tish Masters Marathon ti­tle when suc­cess­fully de­fend­ing it on the Isle of Man at the week­end. The 36 year-old Or­ton-based ath­lete re­tained his crown in style clock­ing a per­sonal best time of 2:36.42.
