Hays help Euro Gold medal athlete Lydia Turner


Birtley athlete Lydia Turner recently competed in her very first international competition in Serbia, proudly wearing a team GB vest to help the combined GB & NI under 20 squad to a gold medal in the European Cross Country Championships.

Birtley AC would like to thank Hays Travel, whose sponsorship helped enable Lydia’s coach Tom Millmore and her mum Julie Turner to travel to Belgrade so see Lydia’s race.

Despite being under-17 at the time of selection, Lydia proved that she was the right choice for the team, and finished in an amazing 13th place, against some very stiff competition. A full match report can be seen in the Evening Chronicle, and Lydia’s story can be seen here.

Hays Travel‘s continuing sponsorship of Birtley AC helps to ensure the development of the next generation of up and coming athletes, and the club are very grateful for their support over the years.
