AT THE Costello Stadium, in Hull, the academy earned themselves six medals and set a new record during the North of England Championships.

Coach George Skafidas said the teams best performance was by Ashley Sandall in the U15 300m who set a new championships record of 36.81 which is the number two performance in UK for 2012 and fifth Best performance of all time in UK.

He said his proudest moment was Daniel Patterson’s medal and performance that came as a result of commitment and consistency in the academy and work of six years and his saddest moment was a collision between Kaine Walker and the athlete in the next lane during the U17 100m Hurdles that caused Kaine the miss of possible Gold medal.
