All the news from Newham’s Southern League match

Newham and Essex Beagles grabbed 23 superb victories in their latest Southern League match at Parliament Hill on Saturday, but it was still only enough for them to finish third out of the four teams.

As usual, the field events brought most wins for the men and women, with thrower Matt Baptiste leading the way with three victories.

He threw an excellent 45.26 metres to win the A discus and then followed it up with wins in the B shot put (13.26 metres) and B hammer (40.34m).

Jamie Stevenson was not far 
behind him as he won the A shot thanks to a throw of 16.14m, before adding the B discus with 39.40m.

The Beagles men managed a high jump double as Matt Roberts claimed the A string with a best of 2.10m and Simon Phelan leapt 1.80m to win the B event and it was a similar story in the triple jump.

Evergreen Julian Golley took the A competition with a best of 14.82m and Hafeez Bisiriyu was the B winner with 12.38m.

Alex Warner won the A hammer with a fine throw of 61.52m, while Jahmal Germain combined track and field for his two wins.

He clocked 15.3 seconds to win the sprint hurdles and then threw the javelin 50.66m for his second victory.

On the track, there was an unusual 5,000m double for Beagles as Niall Sheehan won the A race in 15.10.6, while Scott Sterling was not far behind, clocking 15.12.4 to claim the B race.

Kamal Esty won the B 100m in 11.8, while the men’s 4x100m relay team also came home first, clocking 44.4 seconds.

The women’s sprint relay team also collected a win, clocking 52.4, but the field athletes earned the bulk of the points, with Grace Jenkins the star with three wins.

In the A shot, she managed a best of 10.52m, before following it up with wins in the A discus (40.22m) and A hammer (37.78m).

Mariana Tchienguen clocked 13.5 seconds to win the B 100m and also came out on top in the B triple jump with 10.38m, while Jasmin Hedman won the A high jump with 1.43m and was second in the B javelin.

Kirsty Smith triumphed in the A triple jump, thanks to a leap of 12.08, while Sikemi Balogun won the B discus with 23.22 and Shannon Jameson managed a battling second place in the sprint hurdles.
