MORPETH Harriers’ team heroes of the day at Saturday’s North of England Cross Country Championships were undoubtedly their Senior Men after they very handsomely won a set of bronze team medals, writes George Patterson.

The event, held for the very first time at Knowsley Safari Park, Merseyside, went ahead mainly thanks to the efforts of the safari park and local athletics club officials, who were all up at dawn to begin a massive operation to organise snow clearance.

It was indeed a very ‘tigerish’ performance by Morpeth Harrier Lewis Timmins when he led his club home by finishing an individual 12th.
