On such a good track it is not surprising that the overall standard has been high, to the benefit of all, and last weeks' results are worthy of note. In the youths' 1 mile Dave Lockley was not pushed hard enough and he won easily in 4 mins, 44.9 secs, to receive a grade 3 standard. In the same race Johnny Jones was second in 4 mins. 52.8 secs. whilst Yvonne Broomhead was third in the 100 yards in 12.3 secs.
Competing in the Junior 2,000 metres steeplechase, Barrie Smith ran a well judged race, taking the lead on the last bend to win by 20 yards and thereby gaining a 2nd grade standard with a time of 6 mins. 24.2 sees. As the grade I is only 6:20 Barrie should have no difficulty in attaining this the next time that he attempts this event.
