YDL Upper – Match 1

Sunday, 1st May 2016

The opening fixture of the Youth Development League for U17s and U20s in the Northern West 1 division was a wet affair, with terrible conditions in Ashton-under-Lyne for all disciplines as the variable spring weather continued.



Despite this, the undoubted highlight was Hannah Kelly setting a new junior club record of 12.5s in the U17 100m. Nathaniel Marshall matched his 100m 11.7s PB whilst Tom Halliwell leapt over 5m for the first time in the Long Jump (5.04m).

With some results still to be processed, Bolton currently lie in fifth of seven positions (388 points, but could rise above fourth-placed Crewe (413.5).


Awaiting report.

1st 580.0 North Wales – 7 league points
2nd 565.5 East Cheshire Harriers & Tameside AC – 6 league points
3rd 463.0 Wigan & District Harriers AC – 5 league points

5th 388.0 Bolton United Harriers & AC – 3 league points
