On Saturday, April 12, Wallasey Athletic Club attended one of the first track meetings of the season at Pilkington Harriers Athletic Club.
A good turn-out by the club resulted in some satisfactory performances and was a useful pointer for the busy, track season ahead.
Most members had reason to feel pleased with their performances, in particular the senior men's 4 x 400m relay squad, who fielded a team consisting of Pete Jones, Ian Mcleod, Doug Hanna and Bob Brimage. They came a very creditable second in a time of 3 min 41 secs. Ian Mcleod also took second place in the senior 200 metres in a time of 23.2 sees.
Full results are as follows;—
1500 Metres - Youths: Mike Perry, 12th, 5.09 mins.
200 Metres - Boys: Michael Jones, 3rd, 29.6 secs.
200 Metres - Colts: Alan Peckham, 3rd. 31.7 secs.
100 Metres - Girls: Sherylee Whyte 3rd, 14.4 secs ( A Race).
Jennifer Jones, 3rd. 15.8 secs. (B Race).
3000 Metres - Senior men Pete Smith, 14th, 10 min. 13 secs.
4 x 200 Boys relay - 4th.
4 x 200 Senior ladies relay - 4th.
