The Longford Park stadium in Stretford was the only location where Bury athletes could find competition over the weekend and five members of Bury AC made the journey.

Jay Cook, competing in his first year as an under 17, produced two new personal best performances.

In the long jump he took second place with his best effort of 5.77m and in the javelin his furthest throw of 36.91 also saw him place second.

David Vaughan is still experimenting with his technique in the triple jump but notwithstanding that his best jump of the day of 11.69 secured him victory in his competition.

On the track Joseph Moores had his first race in five years. The former Loughborough student demonstrated that he is returning to fine form with his 4.05.2 clocking in the 1,500m giving him second place and missing his personal best by less than a second.

Josh Birmingham ran in the A 800m race and took fifth place with a time of 2.03.9 which was a strong performance given the lack of opportunity he has had to test himself over the distance this year.

In the G 800m race Matthew Garside made an excellent debut over the distance. He led the race from gun to tape and his performance of 2.13.75 saw him nearly six seconds clear of second.
