A small, but select and hard working Chorley squad claimed an impressive second place in the last Northern Men’s and Women’s Athletic meet.

In a very hot Salford, the team came in just 10 points behind the leader.

Young sprinters Bolu Olufon and Nick Fowler each took second in the two 100m races, and vet champion sprinter John Wright took a second place in the 200m B race.

Sprinter Andrew Ramsey went long with a third in the 400m, and fourth in hammer.

Sprinter Rick Cordwell tried other events, and was rewarded with victory in the 400m hurdles and triple jump.

Multi-event expert, Ian Gouldthorpe scored the most points with his eight events, which included a first in 400m and second in 110m hurdles.

Adam and Ryan Sciacca won the 1500m and 800m races respectively.
