|LPS senior forced into second place.
Liverpool Harriers proved to strong at the opening Reebok fixture at Sefton Park. Packing 6 in the first 12 it was always going to difficult to beat. We did however pack our 6 in 24 so with two fixtures left it is all to play fore. Paul Cadwallader lead us home in second place with from Henry Stewart, Sammy Rashid, Mark Donghue, Des McIvor and Adam Clancy we did have a young feel to the team with three of the six being juniors.
|Difficult time at National 6 Stage
The Relay season was always going to be an uphill struggle after a difficult time at Sefton Park. When you have only the minimum number on the Monday before the event it never looks good. Bernie Murphy had even asked the Club Secretary to bring his kit just in case he was needed but alas the Secretary was busy at home and could not travel this year after stepping in at the last minute last season. In the end we were a runners short for a complete team. Well done to all the lads who travelled down to Birmingham and got a run although
