Rotherham Harriers & Athletics Club
Great Performance So Close

North of England Track & Field league: Match 4

The Harrier's team went into the final match of the 2018 season at Herringthorpe stadium, needing to win to clinch a place in the promotion play off Match. The position after the first 3 matches was Rotherham 3rd, one point behind Kingston-Upon-Hull and two points behind leaders Derby AC.

The club were hopeful that the home fixture would prove favourable, and would enable this team to match the successes of the two young athlete teams, with a league win.

The Harrier's athletes performed extremely well, but were unable to beat a very strong Derby AC team.

The match result and points were:-

1 Derby AC 402

2 Rotherham 377

3 Hallamshire 369

4 Kingston-u-Hull 338

5 Chesterfield 306.5

6 Lincoln 258.5

The final league positions and points were:-

1 Derby 22

2 Rotherham 19

3 Kingston-u-Hull 18

4 Hallamshire 10

5 Chesterfield 8

6 Lincoln 7

Thanks to Ian Cooley, Stuart Kerr & Kevin Thomas for their help with organisation and team management, and to all the club volunteers and supporters for their help this season.

In this final fixture there were again many examples of event wins and really good points scores. Steph Burns and Samantha Hughes (3000m) George Perkins & Owen Thomas (Hammer), Emma Dakin & Amy Hodgson (Shot & Discus) and Charlotte Kerr & Amy Hodgson (High Jump) scoring the maximum 16 points in their events.

Individuals who scored highly were Ben Burton (7 events) Emma Dakin, Bradley Ellison, Amy Hodgson & Sam Picton (4 events) Jess Freeman - making a welcome return to club competition, Charlotte Kerr, Leo Rowley & Sam Thorpe (3 events). The importance of all those present cannot be understated, whether they do one event or two or more events.
