Linden Homes Athlete of the Month for January 2017 Award,
has gone to their Under 17 Man Matthew Waterfield.
Waterfield very much played an integral role in the success of his club during the month,
as firstly by closing their count in the fourth Start Fitness North Eastern Harrier League at Herrington Country Park,
by finishing eighth, and one place ahead of the rival Durham City runner,
which very much kept Morpeth in the club title race.
Having probably his best ever run in a Morpeth vest, he also emerged as the clubs surprise
second counter at the Northern Cross Country Championships in Knowsley,
where they finished a close fourth in the team race, only narrowly missing out for Bronze medals.
Matthew very much deserves this individual award, for his wholehearted
club commitment on a team front, which has been outstanding,
and at a time when he is also dedicating some of his time to
developing his talents as an assistant coach,
and helping other youngsters with their ambitions to achieve.
Well Done indeed.
Matthew is pictured above receiving his Certificate of Achievement
