Success at Shildon for Birtley

On Sunday April 13th, one of the first Track and Field events of the year was held at Shildon Athletics Club. The Anne Marie Readshaw Open Meeting is a regular fixture on the athletics calendar, and is a popular event. Despite the cool and blustery conditions, several Birtley athletes turned out for the match.

Sophie Ward ran 14.70 in the u15 100m heat, and jumped 3.61 in her long jump event.
