Mark Culshaw and Anthony George catch the eye at South of England AA Championships

There was double cause for celebration at Ilford AC after they scooped two gold medals at the South of England AA Championships held at Crystal Palace last weekend.

Mark Culshaw took on the 5km track walk and finished in a time of 28 minutes 30 seconds to take top spot.

Anthony George joined his team-mate in claiming a medal, as he produced a personal best in the under-17 Men’s triple jump of 13.11 metres to secure first place.

The club also produced its best ever points tally of the season to take fourth spot in the final Southern League meeting at Colchester on Saturday.

A total of 237 points was only two points behind second place with many club athletes performing more than one event.

At the Pride 10km Run at Victoria Park, Steve Parker impressed to finish in 275th place with a time of 46.11, while the evergreen Pam Jones occupied 908th spot after clocking 1:07.27.
