Welcome to the brand new Saltwell Harriers website. Hopefully you will find it more interesting and interactive. I will be adding more content and features over the coming months so keep coming back to check out the changes. Please also let me know if you have any feedback or suggestions to improve the site. Thanks, Rob
Please find here the final results from our Harrier League competition which commenced back in October.
A big thank you to Gillian Donaldson for sending the information to all members about Graham Stephenson 30th birthday bash. For those of you who got the email multiple times I am sorry – I left it to Graham to sort and he forgot things like the date, etc! Men!
It appears not everyone has the info so just in case: Everyone in the club is invited to Graham’s party on Saturday 10th May at 7.30pm at the Summerhill Pavilion in Newcastle. (www.friendsofsummerhill.org.uk) – we hope you can make it. Please can you let me or Graham know if you can make it so that we can cater for the right numbers. And thank you to all of you who have already replied!
Summerhill Square is a hidden gem in Newcastle upon Tyne – a tranquil oasis just minutes away from Central Station, St. James’s Park and the busy central shopping areas of the city. Our aim is to make Summerhill an even better place to live, work and visit.
This coming Saturday 22nd March is the last Harrier League of the season and all position in both the mens and womens competitions are still up for grabs. However, it would require a series of calamities on Sarah Garrets part and a degree in maths to figure out permutations to bet against her taking the 2014 title. In the minor placings Jackie Candlish will require a gusty performance to prevent a number of her fellow athletes bumping her off the podium.
Despite giving away a 15 point advantage at Alnwick, Keith is still in pole position. Though a week suffering from a double doze of MAN FLU will require him to dig out all the reserves he has, to fight off a challenge from the young pretender Andrew Softley. But team points will be the only focus on Wood’s mind as he his reported to have said ‘I intend to lead from the front’, putting club before individual glory as Saltwell’s men need to gain maximum team points, ensuring the unthinkable of relegation to Division 3 is avoided.
So it’s all to run for at Wrekenton on Saturday. Lets hope everyone who can turns out to support the club by either running or cheering.
