In the combined Northern Athletics Senior and Under 20 Track and Field Championships,
held at Sport City, Manchester on Saturday and Sunday 10th & 11th June 2017,
Morpeth Harriers, Joe Armstrong, Ryan Green and David Thomas were in action.
After finishing fourth in his heat of the Senior Men’s 800m in 1m58.97s,
Armstrong finished sixth in the later run final, posting a time of 1m59.02s
There was a medal for Green however, as he took Silver in the Under 20 Men’s 800m final,
posting a time of 2m02.24s, which was very much slowed by a strong swirling wind.
Thomas meanwhile competed in the Under 20 Men’s Long Jump and Triple Jump events,
finishing sixth and fourth with 5.67m and 12.39m respectively,
only losing out by 50cm for a Bronze medal in the latter.
