HAVERING MAYESBROOK athletes helped Essex carry off the Inter Counties title in wet and windy conditions at Bedford recently.

Pride of place went to Faye Fullerton, who pressed international Vicky Griffiths all the way and was rewarded with a silver medal in a new PB of two minutes 05.98 seconds, almost a one second improvement and fourth best-ever by a club female.

Emma Christmas was fifth in the javelin with her second best- ever throw of 41.26m and Bonne Buwembo was also close to his best finishing sixth in the men's javelin, throwing 66.33m.

Other club athletes in action were Mel Harrison (11th discus-34.86m), Louise Mathews (eighth javelin 36.62m), Rob Warner (eighth steeplehase 9.59.52), Kate Cowley (11th long jump 5.28m) and Nicola Hill (sixth heat 400m hurdles 66.5s).

n AT the recent British Masters Championship meeting held at the Horsepath Track, Oxford, Dagenham-based endurance runner Rob Sargent took part in the 10,000m finishing a creditable sixth.

Sargent ran in heat two, for athletes in the category M35-54 and a strong field toed the line.

Running in Loughton AC colours, Sergeant ran a consistent race and finished in 40 minutes 51.51 seconds, which is just outside his best of last year, to place sixth in the M50 age group on a cool, damp, blustery day.
