Young Athletes Excel For Esm

Ealing Southall & Middlesex continued their run of good form in the McDonald's Boys National Young Athletes League, finishing second to league leaders Windsor in their Division One match at Perivale on Sunday.

The club put up its usual strong performance in the later events to overtake Dacorum in a close battle for second place.

For the second consecutive match an Ealing athlete won the McDonald's Man of the Match award. This time it was Fola Onibuje, showing that he is well on the way back to his best after injury by winning the Under 17 200m in a very fast time of 22.1 seconds without ever having to run flat out.

Another sprinter in good form was Jacob Charles who ran personal bests of 11.6 and 24.5 seconds to finish second in both 100m and 200m, with Andre Gordon second in the B 100 (12.4 seconds).

The very strong middle distance squad put up some excellent performances. In the 800m, the watch could not separate Peter Hryniewiecki and Lee Bowron who were locked together all down the home straight, winning the A and B events respectively in 2:02.4.

Shugri Omar pulled clear on the last lap of the 1,500m to win in 4:15.8 and showed good speed with a time of 52.8 seconds to anchor the 4x400m relay team to victory.

Simon Suarez followed up his win in the 400m hurdles with another first place in the steeplechase in 5:04.4.

In the field, Christian Campbell made a very impressive club debut, winning the triple jump with 12.97m and finishing second in both high and long jumps. Lewis Loxton was second in the B high and long jumps.

In the throws, Eric Ayero-West was third in the javelin with 35.95m and won the B discus. Simon Wills, still unable to sprint due to injury picked up valuable points with third in the B discus and fourth in the shot (9.14m).

The Under 15s had a clean sweep in the sprints with Jason Mammen winning the 200m (25.4 seconds) and B 100m (12.4 seconds), Abdi Igi the 400m (56.7seconds), Daniel Grant the B 200m and B 400m.

Darryl Thomas added the A 100m (12.6 seconds) to his earlier win in the long jump and a fine personal best of 1.65m in the high jump.

Adam Howie moved up in distance this week to take second in the 800m (2:12.3) with Ben Stock second in the B race (2:24.3) while Chris Suarez and Sam Spalding were second in the 1500m events.

In the throws, Mehran Shahabaldine shattered his personal best with 11.39m for second in the shot and was third in the hammer with Matthew Hills fourth in the discus.

A much strengthened Under 13 squad performed very well. Regulars Joe Harling (third in the long jump and fourth in the 200m) and David OConnell (fourth in the shot and 800m) were joined by five promising newcomers.

Rami Dawod won the long jump with 4.41m and was second in the 1,500m (5:23.0). Ashley Hunt won the B 1,500m (5:29.2) and was third in the shot (6.08 m). Daniel Bramble was third in the 100m with Luke Follows winning the B event.
