HAVERING MAYES-BROOK'S talented youngster Bonne Buwembo further increased his club under-20s and senior javelin record on Saturday, as the Southern Men's team were runners-up in their Division One match at Peterborough.

Buwembo's new mark of 66.71m won the A string event, beating current UK second-ranked Mervyn Luckwell, who found the strong head wind hard to cope with.

Georgie Bean was second in the B javelin.

Another double came in the steeplechase, where Rob Warner won the A and Grant Twist set a PB for B victory to close in on a place in the club all-time under-20s top 10 list.

Daniel Gamester won the A hammer with a season's best, and evergreen skipper Mark Bishop was second in the B as well as winning the high jump and sprint hurdles B strings.

Ross Clarke set an 800m PB for second and was also second in the 1500m.

His B string partners - Grant Twist (800m) and Matt Bland, were also second, as was Tony Collins in the B 5000m.

Joseph Ramie's 200m PB placed him second, as did his triple jump.

Anthony Williams pro-vided runners up doubles in A hurdles and B long jump.

Jay Ryan's third place shot effort was the third best ever by an under-20 with the senior weight and he also equalled his high jump PB. But hopes of good points in the pole vault from Ryan and Mark Bishop were thwarted when the competition had to be called off - and the points shared.

Matt Russell took a step back to fitness taking part in three sprints and the relay, and Rob Dickenson (5000m) and Vince Lazaro (long and triple jumps) completed the squad.

Team manager Peter Estcourt hopes to build on this result in the remaining fixtures as other athletes return from injury.
