YOUNG Bolton Harriers Alfie Dodds and Jamie Greenhalgh shone at the first open track meeting at Trafford, claiming medals and new personal-best times.

The duo - two of four club members at the event - are in their first year at under-15s level but did not look out of place.

Alfie ran his first ever 100m and got a respectable time of 13.4secs. He started off very nervously with a false start, but regained composure and was thrilled with his performance having not trained for running or worn a pair of spikes for two years due to injury.

He’s keen to compete in more running this season.

Both Alfie and Jamie are members of the throwing group at Bolton Harriers and competed in the 4kg shot put.

Jamie came out top with a new PB of 8.02m finishing third place overall.

Alfie also got a new PB of 7.43m to finish second in his pool and sixth overall.

The pair also competed in the 1.25kg discus and again, it was Jamie who came out top.

He got a new PB of 20.63 which secured him second place. Alfie also achieved a new PB of 18.09m to take third.

In the u13 boys, Joshua Grundy competed in the 75m and came home in a big PB of 11.2. He then moved up to 150m and got a silver medal with another PB of 21.05.

Benjamin Davies ran the 75m in a PB of 11.08 and the 150m in 22.39 secs.

Both Ben and Josh have made excellent progress since moving up to Les Hall’s sprinting group.

On Sunday, three members of the throwing group - William Lacey, Jamie Greenhalgh and Alfie Dodds - competed in the Bury AC Spring Throwing Festival.

It was a first year at u17 for William and his results were: Discus 31.29, Hammer 28.53 (PB), Shot 9.6 (PB).

Meanwhile, Jamie and Alfie tried to improve on Saturday’s performances.

Jamie improved in discus, setting a new PB of 20.86m and another PB in shot of 8.20m. He also registered just over 14m in the hammer.

Alfie managed to improve his PB in shot with a throw of 7.84m and got a new PB in the hammer with a throw of 16.94m.
