Morpeth Harrier James Young produced a season’s best performance of 3m40.03, when
finishing a close second to Woodford Green’s Phil Norman in the fastest 1500m at Saturday
night’s BMC Grand Prix Meeting held at Stretford, Manchester.
Further back in the field in twelfth place, was fellow Morpeth Harrier Scott Beattie, who
posted a personal best time of 3m43.48s, taking six seconds off his previous figures.
Four other Morpeth Harriers in action at Stretford were Alistair Douglass, Alex Brown, Sam
Hancox, and Phil Winkler.
Douglass certainly has found a zest for regular action, and he can feel pleased with his win in
the ninth fastest 800m event, where he posted a season’s best of 1m55.28s.
In the fastest 5000m, Brown finished in thirteenth place in 14m24.90s.
Meanwhile Hancox and Winkler both ran in the second fastest 5000m.
Hancox finished fifth in a new personal best time of 14m46.84s, taking one second off his
previous figures for the twelve and a half lap event.
Winkler finished twelfth in 14m59.68s.
