The athletic match at Port Sunlight Oval on Saturday afternoon between seven local clubs resulted in a victory in the senior competition, for Liverpool Harriers with Sutton Harriers second and Wallasey Athletic Club third.
W.A.C. placed Ray Owen second in the discus (103 ft.), Olatunde Lawrence second in the high jump (5ft. 4ins), and Geoff Moores second in the long jump (19ft.). Although Owen's performance is in the region of his present best, the two jumpers have several times bettered these figures.
In the junior competition, however, Moores won the javelin event with a throw of 159 ft. 4ins. which is only two feet under his best with the lighter weapon with which be broke the Grammar School record. Despite his slow starting, Fullerton a junior won his heat and took third place in the senior 440 yds. final. Gordon Price the international schoolboy footballer, tackled his junior 100 yards with determination and returned 11 secs. in his heat, doubtless more will be heard of this promising young sprinter next season.
Last week the club senior high jump standard was obtained by Ramsey Hewson.
On Monday senior standards were passed by Dinsdale, McFarland and Johnston in the 3 miles, and by Matt Smith in the 120 yards hurdles, and junior standards by Maddock, Ledward, Foot, Whitburn, Scammell and Winrow in the 3 miles, and by Fullerton in the 120 yds hurdles.
In spite of the sodden track on Wednesday night, John Prydderch in the 220 yards and McFarland in the 880 yds. gained the senior qualification and Fullerton added the junior 100 yds. standard to his collection.
The final championships will be held on Saturday afternoon, the last day of the present season at Leasowe Road playing fields commencing at 2.30 p.m. when all friends of the club will be welcome. An announcement of the date and place of the annual general meeting will be made shortly.
