Having won the Rockingham Trophy last year, Cheshire had another good weekend at Bedford, matching their points total from 2005, which which was good enough for third place in the Middlesex/Surrey Trophy. Star of the team was David Brackstone who ran a controlled race in windy conditions in the 400m hurdles to catch the leader in the last few strides to regain the title he won in 2004.Also scoring big points for the county was 41 year old Bashir Hussain, who narrowly missed out on a medal in the 10000m - an event he won 12 years ago - and then returned the following day to compete in the 5000m. Bashir now tops the UK veterans rankings at both events. Even busier was international decathlete Roger Skedd, who competed in 3 events, and was unlucky not to make the final of the 100m hurdles, missing out by 2 1/100's of a second. A small women's team also performed well, with every athlete having at least one top 10 finish. Busiest athlete was Jemma Kelly, who was 6th in the hammer, and 9th in the shot and the discus. The two Cheshire steeplechasers, Becky Ellis and Emily Brown had to contend with a hailstorm on their way to 6th and 7th places respectively.
