Grantham Athletic Club hosted the third match in the North of England League at The Meres last Sunday.

With a few more female competitors taking part, the home club won the match. The club’s men have topped the points score in every match so far.

Personal best performances were achieved by Josh Lord in the 800m, Michael Burr in the triple jump, and Chris Bainbridge in the hammer, with Dion Elba-Porter equalling his PB best in 100m and Burr doing so in the long jump.

Grantham AC are now just one point behind Longwood in the league and will be hoping for a good turnout for the final match at Grimsby on August 9.
