Our U13 & U15 YDL League team won the final match of the NW Premier League at Bebbington and are now NW champions and have qualified for the northern final where they will attempt to win the northern title for the 11th time in 13 years.

The individual highlight came from BASIL ZOLA who set a new club record of 6.47m to win the U15 boy’s long jump. Basil was a real hero competing in four events, winning two and finishing 2nd in a third. Another club record was set in the U13 girls sprint relay when our winning team of SETIRA REID, HOLLY GARNER, TIA GROVER and THEA BROWN recording 52.4 seconds. Thea was a real action hero competing in four events and winning three.

Our sprinters and hurdlers were in great form with team victories in three relay events, SUCCESS EDUAN and NATACHI NWOSU both scored sprint double victories. Other victories came from SETIRA REID, THEA BROWN and MAX CUNNINGHAM. THEO MAY made a great debut for the club finishing 2nd in both sprints and then teaming up with JOSHUA EME,  TOLUWALASE ADEYEMI and NY JACKSON to win the U13 boy’s relay. FAVOUR JOSEPH and HERMIONE MASON ran fast times and finished runners up in the U15 girls 300m races. SAMMY BREINGAN again made a tremendous contribution by competing in four sprint races /relays.

Our vaulters and jumpers were in great form with victories from BASIL ZOLA, RUARI Mc DONALD, ELLIE WOLFENDEN, THEA BROWN and MOHAMMED COLE.

Our throwers had a great day with victories from MACKENA BRADSHAW, ANNABEL AMADIN, JASMINE RICHARDSON, ELLA GILLESPIE, MIA WALKER and RYAN VIGERSTAFF (on his club debut).

Our middle distance runners again made a massive contribution with many PB’s, in races of an exceptionally high standard. Twins ELLIOT & EVAN SAVAGE were in tremendous form with Elliot winning the 800m by a margin of 9 seconds in 2:01.7 whilst Elliot, who recently set a club 1500m record of 4:14.71, won his 1500m by a comfortable margin.

JASMINE REED ran a great race to finish 2nd over 1500m whilst LIBBY HILL, ANNABELLE BYGRAVE  and OSCAR SCHOFIELD ran PB’s over 800m OSCAR  was recently runners up in the British Triathle (swim-run-shoot event) and is due to compete in the European Championships in Madeira.

Gareth Raven T of T 2019

This iconic event, which was re-launched by Sports Tours International in 2015, returned again in 2019. The first race was founded by Dr Ron Hill MBE in 1983. The week-long event, run in 4 different Tameside locations, was a huge success, enjoyed by people throughout the borough and beyond.

This year, the Tour of Tameside consists of 4 races on consecutive days, including: the X-Trail 10k, Hell on the Fell, Hero Half Marathon and Dr Ron Hyde 7 mile.

Our very own Gareth Raven, although now over 45 shows no sign of slowing down, giving the eventual winner Mo Aburezeq a run for his money. Only 18 seconds divided them on leg 1. and the overall difference at the end of the tour was only 3 minutes. Gareth was 2nd with 3:08:39 with Mo first in 3:05:43.

Other Sale Harriers who took up the challenge included Robert Fairbanks who was 2nd M40, Jenny Fox 2nd F40, Tracey Taylor 8th F35 and Lynda Rowlinson who was 3rd F55. Mark Fox was going well after 2 races but was not able to complete the final 3.

Wendy Terry did the 10k in 47:23 and Beth Louise Newton did 50:40.
