This great club has borne witness to many inspirational achievements, including joyous victories, international representation and team success.
Recently however, came news which perhaps surpasses them all. Fittingly, it is our club founder who has climbed the dizziest of heights.
In the past fortnight, Bill McGuirk was elected to one of the most prestigious positions in British Athletics . . . . . . he is now President of the English Cross Country Association for 2015-2016.
The combined green, white and gold of Wallsend and Blyth came out in force at Middlesbrough and left with a very well earned 2nd place. The spirit in the camp was evident again as we had lots of people taking part, this is exactly what we need for the next two fixtures if we are going to remain in top spot.
