Wow!!, What a superb beginning to the outdoor season for Morpeth Harriers Under 17 Man Andrew Knight, who putted 16.56m at the Kieran Maxwell Memorial Track and Field Meeting, held at Darlington’s Eastbourne Athletics Facility on Sunday 8th April 2018.
It represented a new lifetime best for the Paul Reed coached athlete, whose previous best had been 15.74m.
The improvement of nearly 80cm is quite remarkable so early in the season, and there is a great deal to look forward to from this young gentleman in the forthcoming months.
Another Morpeth Harrier in action at the meeting was Dean Lonsdale, who was second fastest in the Senior Men’s 800m, posting a time of 2m04.19s, it was his first ever outing over the two-lap event.
