Stam­ford-based star Aaron Scott stormed to vic­tory in the Bar­ney 5k held at Ferry Mead­ows (writes Barry Warne).

The race, held in mem­ory of for­mer Nene Val­ley favourite Mike Barns­dale, has a rep­u­ta­tion for pro­duc­ing fast times which meansthat a strong field usu­ally gath­ers for the event.

This year’s race was no ex­cep­tion, though Scott was too good for his ri­vals rac­ing away from the gun and win­ning in a speedy time of 15:13.

Scott, now run­ning in the colours of Lin­coln Welling­ton AC, fin­ished 200 me­tres ahead of run­ner-up Steve Robin­son of Peter­bor­ough AC, who clocked 15:50.

It was a closer run thing for the mi­nor plac­ings with Yax­ley’ s James Mog ridge tak­ing third place in 16:05.

The Peter­bor­ough AC quar­tet of John Pike, Shaun Wal­ton, James White­head and Amit­tai Ben-Is­rael were not far be­hind in fourth to sev­enth po­si­tions.

The ladies race was dom- inated by Higham Har­rier Rachel Do­herty with a fin­ish­ing time of 17:14.

The con­sis­tent Philippa Tay­lor of Nene Val­ley fin­ished as run­ner-up in 18:24 with March AC’s Melissa Neal a minute fur­ther back in third.

Nene Val­ley teenagers Josie For­tune and El­lie Pic­caver both ran well, with top ten fin­ishes.
