Nineteen members of St Helens Sutton Athletics Club have been selected represent Merseyside in the County Sportshall Finals in Manchester on March 15.

Jorden Pilkington, Lauren Marshall, Kaitlin Naylor, Mia Langton, Ethan Murray and Daniel Dobson were selected for the under 13s.

While in the under 15s, brothers Matthew, Daniel and Christopher Lamb, David Barrow, George Asson, Lewis Cowan, Jacob Beesley, Megan Lang, Emily Smith, Caitlin Young, Erin Makin, Zoe Pye and Olivia Harwood-Moss were called up.

Some of the other youngsters only just missed out on selection.

Meanwhile, three of the club’s veterans were record makers in the recent Halewood 5km road race. Making a welcome return to racing, Stan Erlam lowered the fastest time for his age category by nearly 10 minutes with a time of 25 minutes and 24 seconds.

Dot Fairhurst followed suit, setting the fastest time for her category with a time of 30.77 and not to be outdone Julia Eccleston set a personal best time for the course of 22.39.
