Morpeth Harriers presented their fourth Reeves the Pensions Specialist Athlete of the Month award,
at their clubhouse on Mitford Road, on the evening of Monday 18th February 2019.
The award for excellent performances during January 2019, went to Under 17 Man Ross Charlton,
whose particular highlight was leading his club home to team Gold Medals at the Northern Athletics Cross Country Championships at Pontefract, where he finished in fourteenth place,
and was third home from the region overall, and he also won a Bronze medal
at the annual Northumberland Schools Cross Country Championships at Temple Park, South Shields.
Both of these performances also gave him further honours, in that he won selection to run for the region at the forthcoming Inter Counties Cross Country Championships at Loughborough, and a place in Northumberland’s squad for the annual English Schools Championships, being held in Leeds.
These events are held within a week of each other in March,
giving Ross a fairly busy end to his Cross-Country season.
