BURY Athletic Club members took three medals at the Northern Track and Field Championships for junior athletes, which were held at Leigh Sports Village last weekend.

Brandon Quinton claimed silver in the under-15s boys' 1500m, finishing in 4mins 25.86secs behind Leeds-based Team GB prospect Ethan Hussey.

The result was further evidence of the excellent progress Quinton has made in his first year in the sport, adding a Northern medal to the honour of making the English Schools final.

Hattie Vaughan also finished second in the u17s' women's pole vault with a best vault of 3.20m, while Grace Goodsell had to settle for bronze in the u15s' girls' long jump, her best leap of 5.20m being down on her best performance.

It was a busy weekend for Grace, who also finished fifth in the 100m final (13.11) and competed against u17s to set a new personal best of 10.41m to take seventh in the triple jump.
