SUPERB SHOW FROM ATHLETES
ALMOST 400 children from nine junior Welsh clubs took part in the second round of competition at the Welsh Junior Louise Arthur League.
The event, for under-11, under-13 and under-15 age groups, was staged at the home of Carmarthen and District Harriers following the opening round at Haverfordwest High School.
