FAYE Fullerton and Ross Clarke showed fine indoor form in helping the London North team to victory in the Indoor City Challenge semi-final at Cardiff on Sunday.

Fullerton faced a tough challenge against World Championships semi-finalist Jemma Simpson, just back from the UK Athletics training camp in South Africa.

The strong opposition worked wonders as the Havering Mayes-brook AC star placed second, posting a fast 2.07.92, only a second outside her outdoor PB.

She also gave the medley relay team a winning lead with her 800m opening leg.

Club mate Clarke stepped into the team at short notice and acquitted himself well in the 1500m as he finished fourth, taking over half a second off his PB with a time of 3.55.76.

There was, however, disapp-ointment for Kate Cowley in her return to GB action at the combined events international against Czech Republic, Holland and Spain in Sheffield.

The 26-year-old began the competition, despite being ill, but withdrew after sprinting the 60m hurdles in 8.90, high jumping 1.66m and putting the shot just 9.33m, well below her best.

Meanwhile, four Havering ladies saw action in last weekend's BUSA (British Universities) Cross Country Championships at Swansea.

First home of the club quartet was Sara Luck, whose 32nd place (26.19) led the London University team to 10th place.

Robyn Matson finished eight places and 16 seconds back in Birmingham University colours, and Vicky Smith was also in the Birmingham squad, finishing 133rd in 30.15.

There was also a commendable 222nd place for 400m hurdler Laura Bealey, who competed for Sheffield University.
