Tipton achieve the Great Escape!

Tipton avoided the drop in the last League match of the season held at Tipton on Sunday August 3rd.  Tipton finished 2nd overall in the match and with DASH and Corby finishing 6th and 4th, it was enough to overhaul our bottom position and avoid relegation.  Tipton now have the prospect of facing some local clubs next year with Wolves and Bilston, Telford and Birmingham Rowheath all in the same division.

Everybody pulled together ensuring all events were covered with some good performances particularly encouraging coming from Tiptons Juniors showing they are more than a match for the seniors.  Some of the notable performances were the mens 4 x 100m relay where John Timmins in about 4th or 5th place going into the last 100m overhauled the leaders with a storming last 100m to win.  John Millington ran a pb of 8.28 in 3000m with an impresive last 1500m to secure victory.  17 year old Jelle Verwer won both the 800m and 1500m 'A' races in 1.56 and 4.06 with impressive sprint finishes.  Full results to follow.
