Blyth Juniors qualify for XC Intercounties
Its been another exciting week of competition, with much of the focus on Tuesday where many of our juniors were taking part in the Northumberland Schools XC Championships at Temple Park, with the hope of qualifying to represent their county at the Intercounties in 2 weeks. In the junior girls race Lauren Creaby was involved in a fierce battle, and took a well-earnt 4th place. Meanwhile Niamh Adams produced a fine run to finish 22nd in her first year in age group. Caitlin Creaby is more used to racing over 60m, but showed her class over the longer XC distance with 8th place in the minor girls race. Frankie Foster and George Bryce were in action in the minor boys race, both producing really strong runs to finish 6th and 27th respectively. Lauren, Caitlin and Frankie all qualified for inter-counties, a fantastic achievement.

On saturday we had more athletes in action. Millie Wilkinson conitnued her strong winter with a 1st place in the 60m at the Sheffield Indoor open. Meanwhile Frankie was in PB form at the Blyth Links partrun with Daniel and William also running well.

Athletics can only run thanks to the support of volunteers. One thing we are desperately short of is FIELD OFFICIALS. These are volunteers who can help run field events at T&F comps, in particular the NEYDL. As a participating club, we are required by the rules to provided qualified officials at NEYDL events, something we have struggled to do last year. This year, if we are unable to fulfill our obligation to provide officials, we will not only lose points, but also we will be limited in the numbers of athletes we can enter into field events. This is something that we cannot allow to happen. 

If you wish to consider starting on the officiating  journey, then please know that you will have the full support of the club and all fees will be paid in full by the club. Officials receive expenses, and have opportunities to progress if the ambition is there. Officials from Blyth have recently been in action at World-Class Diamond League events, and will testify that it is the most rewarding experience.
