Walpole St Andrew athlete Matt Pyatt produced a superb personal best performance for Hunts AC in the Eastern Veterans League.

Pyatt came home second in his age group in the 3000m with a pb of 9 minutes and 12 secs knocking 13 seconds off his previous best.

His performances helped Hunts to the runners-up spot in their division and he will represent them in the ‘Evac’ final at Bedford

Then Pyatt represented Hunts AC in the Southern Athletics League at Bury St Edmunds and for only the second time he took on the 5k track distance. He was second in 16.21, a track pb of 52 seconds. Pyatt bagged a routine win in a more familiar 1500m, by 15 seconds.

His debut season efforts have helped the combined mens and ladies teams to a very respectable fourth place in Division 3 North.
