BURY Atheltic Club starlet Jerel Livingston continued his dominance of the Bury Mini-League by winning four gold medals in the third and final meeting of the summer.

The youngster, who earned the biggest medal haul in both the first two meetings, won the 80m, 150m, 600m and long jump in the under-11s boys’ competition.

But Jerel was not the only star in the making on show as Bury’s young athletes put in fantastic performances across the age groups.

Twins Millie and Harry Yates were both in the medals in the u9s, with Millie claiming victory in girls’ 600m and Harry claiming an amazing five medals – gold in the 80m and long jump; silver in the 150m and 600m and bronze in the soft javelin.

Olivia Benjamin was another champion in the u9s, taking first in the soft javelin, while Nicole Palmer won a well deserved bronze in the long jump.

Charlie Fawcett won the boy’s javelin, just pipping Freddie Worthington and Noah Carter was second in the long jump.

Sophie Gartland showed her potential with three medals in the u11s girls competition, finishing second in the 150m and long jump, and third in the 80m. Leonie Appleby was second in the soft javelin.

The one event Jerel did not take part in in the boys u11s – the soft javellin – was won by Bury’s Jay Cook. He took a complete set of medals, finishing second in the long jump and third in the 600m.

Eddie Siddal finished second to Livingston in both sprints and then found himself edged out by Cook in the soft javelin to finish with three silvers. Callum Beckwith won his first medal with third in the 150m.

There were silver medals for Nathan Shepherd in the u13s boys’ 80m and Brandon Wilson in the 150m, with Shepherd adding a bronze in the longer sprint.

Daisy Worthington rounded off the evening with a front run victory in the u13s girls’ 800m.

Charlotte Farnworth was another victor in this age group in the long jump and there were also medals for Amy Garroch, who finished second in the 150m; Esme Guy, with third in the 80m, and Heledd Rimmer, who won bronze in the soft javelin.
