The T&F 2015 season is almost upon us, and we will be holding an informal taster session for anyone to come and try out an event they may be interesting in competing in.
Events on offer will include:
Hurdles, Javelin, Shot Putt, Long Jump, Discuss.
If time we may have a look at some baton hand-overs too.

This past weekend the curtain fell on another North East Harrier League. Entering the weekend the mens team still had a distinct possibility of being relegated for the first time from division 1 (something only Wallsend and Sunderland can boast). This was despite the clubs recent revival in Harrier League fixtures.
To ensure survival in the top flight the club needed to finish above both South Shields and Low Fell who sat below them in the league. Captain Coates and Paddy Dinsmore had again managed to assemble a strong squad but with a large proportion of the runners running from the medium and fast packs the task of remaining a division one club became that bit harder. Following an “inspirational” battle cry from Head Coach Paddy Dinsmore it was apparent that the men would need to run their proverbial socks off.
Captain Harry Coates leading from the front and recording the 5th fastest time on the day led the men home in 22nd place with an actual time of 31:45 (handicap 36:45), Robbie Livermore 3 places behind in 25th and a time of 36:58 which was later described as “the run of the day” by Paddy Dinsmore. 3rd counter for the club and 40th overall was head coach Paddy Dinsmore in a time of 37:35 , both Robbie and Paddy will now start the 2015-16 season from the medium pack. Fourth man home was Wallsends own super triathlete Phil Aiston who recorded an actual time of 33:12 crossed the line just ahead of Gavlar Lee in 38:12. 6th counter was Wallsend super vet Brilliant Bri Hetherington who finished with an actual time of 35:46 (handicap 38:16).
Kris Stobbs was next to finish in a time of 38:25 (35:55 actual), Gez Davidson 38:47, Kev Hood 38:47, Nick Zissler from the fast pack 38:47/33:47, Dan Weatherill running from medium 39:03/36:33, Matt “The Tash” Darbyshire from medium 39:15/36:45, John Dodds from medium 39:24/36:54, Paul McAleer 39:44, Tim Nic from fast 39:54/34:54, Dan Smith 40:01, Nathan Halliday 40:13, Simon Lyon from medium 44:22/41:52, Joe Colligan 44:34, Paul Stretesky 45:30, Steve Aird 46:29, Tony Maddocks 47:48, Mick Day 51:45.
The days results saw Wallsend finish in joint 7th place level with South Shields Harriers and above North Shields Poly and Low Fell. The club finished the season in 8th place with 42 points, 1 point ahead of South Shields who are now subsequently relegated along with Low Fell.
Well done to the 23 men who took part at Wrekenton and all those who competed throughout the NEHL season.
A big well done to Captain Fantastic Harry Coates who finished 3rd in the NEHL individual Grand Prix.
Of course it wasn’t just the men who competed at Wrekenton the ladies team was also well represented in the final NEHL fixture. New ladies captain Becki Newman assembling a formidable squad for the final fixture of the season. Arabella Pearce finishing first for Wallsend and continuing her good recent form finishing 14th overall with a time of 28:42 Arabella will start next season from the medium pack, Sarah Lynch was second counter 65th overall in a time of 29:55, Victoria Ericson finishing next in a time of 30:34, Elaine Liu (from medium) crossing the line at the same time in an actual time of 28:34. Leanne Smith was next to finish in a time of 30:42, Captain Becki Newman from medium 30:46/28:46, Lyndsey Thompson 32:05, Marion Dreano-Thwaite 32:22 and Tamsin Austin 39:46.
The results saw the women finish 6th on the day from 18 clubs who counted. The final division 2 table had the Wallsend Ladies finish 8th from 37 teams with 48 points which is a fantastic achievement and serves as a good building block for next years NEHL.
So finally on to the juniors.
Thomas Rumney had a fantastic race in the U11’s boys race finishing 9/56 in a time of 6:48. Nathan Armatage finishing 44th in a time of 8:00.
Briony Livermore finished 10/56 in the U11’s girls race in a time of 7:18. Ellen Williams finished in 18th in a time of 7:46 with Susan Folorunso a place behind in 19th with a time of 7:50.
Ollie Aird running from the fast pack finished 31st from a field of 43 with a time of 9:34/11:04. Ollie’s actual time would have seen him finish 12th from a non handicapped start.
Callum Livermore from the fast pack (wearing the correct number) had another fantastic race finishing 4th in the U17’s boys with a time 22:47/25:27. Callums actual time would have seen him finish 3rd.
Well done to each and everyone of you who represented the club at junior and senior level. Everyone of you done your club proud.
