The annual end of season presentation night for the Start Fitness sponsored North Eastern Harrier League,
took place at the sponsors premises on Grainger Street, in the warm and welcome Camber Coffee Bar
on the evening of Thursday 11th April 2019, and was well attended by expectant prize winners,
and their respective club representatives and supporters.
Amongst those present, were several from Morpeth Harriers, who were extremely successful in team affairs, especially on the Male side, where they captured four league titles, and in addition had team success in the combined Under17/Under20 Women’s competition.
Master of Ceremonies for the night was League Secretary Micky Baker, who was ably assisted by NECAA Chairman Bill McGuirk, who provided individual information on each winner for a captive audience,
but not quite Ant and Dec, or Morecambe and Wise for that matter.
Presentations were made to all recipients by Veteran Medallist Guy Bracken, representing the sponsor,
and Harrier League Committee Members, John Stevens (Men’s Secretary), Vicki Thompson (Women’s Secretary),
and Alan Elders (Treasurer), were also on hand to assist.
Opening Presentations were for the Individual Grand Prix,
where four Morpeth Harriers were amongst the recipients.
Ryan Davies was third Under 13 Boy, and Daniel Melling, Holly Peck,
and Emma Holt were winners of the Under 17 Men’s,
Under 17/Under 20 Women’s, and Senior Women’s Grand Prix’s.
On the team front, as mentioned earlier in this report, Morpeth Harriers won the
Under 13 Boy’s, Under 15 Boys, Under 17 Men’s, Senior Men’s Division 1 titles,
and the clubs Under17/Under 20 Women won their league title.
Ryan Davies and Bertie Marr accepted the Under 13 Boys trophy,
Dylan Davies went up to receive the Under 15 Boys trophy,
Daniel Melling and Tom Balsdon were on hand to take the Under 17 Men’s trophy,
Andrew Hebden accepted the Senior Men’s Division 1 trophy,
and Holly Peck stepped up to accept the Under 17/Under 20 Women’s trophy.
Many thanks go to the league committee for once again organising a superb season of competition,
and to sponsors Start Fitness for their continued generosity and hospitality,
who will also be sponsoring the forthcoming 2019/20 season, which will commence in the autumn.
