North Belfast had another successful day at the office yesterday at East Down AC’s annual Jimmys 10k event. Stephen Scullion justified his favourite tag by demolishing the rest of the field and finishing one minute and eleven seconds ahead of the second place Joe McAllister. The men also won the team event with a good turnout. Other finishers included Eamon White in 4th, Michael Fitzpatrick in 10th, Alan Ritchie in 16th, Ian O’Neill in 41st, Gerard McNamara in 43rd, Paddy Hamill in 50th, Greg McClure in 65th, Chris Sherrard in 82nd and Aidan O’Reilly in 182nd.
That’s not to forget the women with Amanda Perry finishing 5th at Jimmy’s and in other races Breege Connolly winning the Church island (Bellaghy) 10k and Cathy taking 4th O35 at the masters in Birmingham with Louise Smith 9th O40.
In Birmingham Matt Shields, John Patience, Derek Donaghy and Peter Smith all had good runs with Matt finishing 8th O55. (Other places unknown at time of writing)
