There have been some remarkable results in the brief existence of Tyne Bridge Harriers, both individually and competing as a team. But the performance by the Men’s ‘A’ Team at the Northern Road Relay Championships must rank as one of the very best.
The team, consisting of Steve Cairns, Tony Carter, Keith Smith, Darryl Davison, Paul Hilton and Sparrow Morley, finished in 28th position overall, but when other clubs ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams were omitted from the results, the team rose to 23rd position, inside the Top 25 and hopefully a place in next month’s National Road Relay Championships. (at the time of writing, it is still unclear whether TBH have qualified so keep coming back).
Special mention must also go to John Hurse, David Rowe, Micky Baker and Keith Rooney, who travelled to Leigh and ran in an incomplete Team ‘B’. But I’m certain from past experience that the four guys will have played just as an important factor in TBH’s fabulous day by providing great support throughout the day.
Congratulations to each and every one of the lads.
Well done to the following north-east clubs also competing at the event.
Gateshead ‘A’ 11th
New Marske 21st
Low Fell 39th
Sunderland Harriers 44th
