On Your Marks…
We are very happy to announce that Tyne Bridge Harriers will be joining forces with our very good friends at Heaton Harriers as a combined team for the 2012 Northern Athletics Track & Field Season.
It was always hoped that TBH would be able to join up with Heaton for the T&F 2012 and following the Heaton AGM, Mal Gibson who is the Captain for Heatons Track & Field Team informed us that it had been agreed the merger would go ahead.
Tyne Bridge Harriers Club Captain, Paul Hilton said
“This is great news for both clubs and we will be a formidable force together!”
Heaton are informing the league of there intentions immediately and we will be having a meeting with Mal (who sometimes trains with TBH) next week.
We will be starting in Division 4E in our first year in the league & will be competing against other strong clubs from the region. Other teams in the division include Middlesbrough & Cleveland / Hartlepool, Tynedale Harriers & AC, Blaydon / Elswick, Jarrow & Hebburn AC
The League meetings take place over 4 matches between May & August. Points are awarded for each of the disciplines which include the whole gamut of Track & Field events. Promotion to the next division awaits the top 2 teams at the end of the season.
