Wallasey Athletic Club seniors and juniors travelled to Waterloo on Saturday for the 63/4 mile road race promoted by Waterloo A.C.
Conditions were good except for slight drizzle and all competitors enjoyed a good afternoon's racing.
The club, though not outstanding did quite well considering they were up against some of the best teams in the north including the English cross-country champions, Bolton United Harriers.
Individual winner was Haslam, of Bolton, with Pawson, of Leeds Harehills, some 20 yards behind.
Wallasey's first man was Roy Miles a newcomer, whose services Wallasey A.C. hopes to have during the coming season, in 60th place.
The Club's other competitors were 89th Jim Johnson, who seems to be establishing himself as one of the leading seniors, 93rd, John Lynch, quite good considering he is only a junior, 99th, Hugh Pritchard, who seems to have improved since going in the army; 103rd, John Ryan, another newcomer who is doing well; 108th, Alan Clarke, who has improved a great deal since the start of the season, as also has Roy Scammell who was 111th; Jim Rimmer and Ram Hewson, two stalwarts without whom Wallasey's tesm would not be complete were the remaining Wallasey runners 120th and 122nd places respectively. The total number of finishers was 133.
