Matt Pyatt from Walpole St Andrew near Wisbech travelled to Solihull to compete for the Eastern Veterans in the Veterans inter counties match.

Competing in the 800m he managed to maintain a two-second advantage on his nearest rivals to win the race for the second successive year in a personal best time of 2 minutes and 5.65 seconds.

His victory was even more impressive given the previous day he competed in several events for Huntingdonshire AC in the Southern Athletics League at Perivale in North London.

Results: 3rd A string 800m in 2-07.1, 3rd A 1500m in 4-25.9, 1st B 3000m PB in 9 mins 25.3 seconds. He finished the day with a leg in the 400m relay.
