It was a disappointing end to the season for Havering Athletics Club's Southern League squad as they finished runners up with two wins and two second places.

For the men Duane Jibunoh won both javelin and discus and was second in the shot, and Arron Bonning had a hat-trick of wins in the pole vault A and shot and discus B strings, and was also second in the B javelin, with Martin Chester second in the B hammer.

Aaron Freshwater was second in both the high and triple jump A strings, and Ridwan Salaam was also a runner-up in the long jump A and high jump B, with Reece Malcolm second in the B long jump.

On the track, Matthew Agnimel had a winning double in the 200m and 400m A races, with Michael Okoro second in the B 200m and Ronnie Adoma winning the 400m B string.

The barriers proved no problem to Karl Tucker and Rob Warner, who won the sprint hurdles and steeplechase respectively.
