Having only just missed out on the previous months vote, Holly Peck certainly maintained her excellent competitive form throughout the month of October 2015, enough to convince the judges to award her with a Certificate of Achievement as the Linden Homes Morpeth Harriers Athlete of the Month.

Holly, pictured receiving her award from the clubs Press Officer George Patterson, at their clubhouse on Mitford Road, Morpeth, on the evening of Monday 16th November, had impressed at the English National Cross Country Relays in Mansfield, where she had led her club to seventh team place in the Under 13 Girls event.

She had also done well on the road in the English National Relay Championships at Sutton Park, had won the individual Gold in the Under 13 Girls event at the Davison Shield competition at South Shields, and had won her clubs own Road Race Championship for her age group.

Holly now joins previous months winners Ruaridh Lang (May), Bobbie Griffiths (June), Scott Beattie (July), David Thomas (August), and Kieran Hedley (September), in the line-up for a possible more lucrative award to be decided in May or June next year, when judges make their decision as to who becomes the Harriers’ Athlete of the Year.
