HATTIE Vaughan, Brandon Quinton, Daisy Worthington and Grace Goodsell put on a show of force for Bury Athletic Club at the National Athletics Under-17s and U15s Championships in Bedford.

It is understood to be the first time Bury has had four athletes qualify for the championships.

And with current record levels of membership, the Market Street club is certainly in rude health.

Goodsell enjoyed the best placed finish of the quartet, setting a new personal best in the u15s triple jump with a leap of 10.67m, ending up in fourth just 11cm short of a bronze medal.

It was a surprise for the young athlete given it was only the fourth time she had attempted the triple jump in competition.

Goodsell was also sixth in the 100m semi-finals in a time of 12.96secs, four hundreths down on her heat time, and 13th in the long jump with 4.88m.

Also in the u15s, Worthington was seventh in the 800m final, finishing in 2:19.97, a position matched by Quinton who was seventh in the 1500m final in 4:18.3.

Vaughan performed very well in her first year as an u17, taking fifth place in the pole vault final with a jump of 3.31m.

Elsewhere, Patrick Clarke and Charlotte Speakman-Farnworth competed at the Yorkshire Combined Events Championships in Cudworth.

Clarke picked up a bronze medal in the u15s' boys' pentathlon, setting a personal best in each discipline to finish on a total score of 2,037 (80m hurdles 13.29, shot put 6m, long jump 5.30m, high jump 1.62m and 800m 2:32.36).

Speakman-Farnworth set thee personal bests in the u15s' girls' pentathlon, with her total score of 2,373 giving her fourth place overall (long jump 4.38m, 75m hurdles 13.87, shot put 6.49m, high jump 1.40m and 800m 2:31.7.

Luke Harrold celebrated his first wedding anniversary by winning the Heaton Park parkrun in a personal best time of 16:34.

Sophie Whittaker was the first woman finisher in 19:36. It was her 30th win at the event, putting her level on victories with Bury team-mate Katie Geelan, who was second woman finisher in 20:16.
