HUNTINGDONSHIRE AC finished a creditable third at their home Southern Men's League match, despite being without three of the club's top athletes.

Christian Roberts, Paul Hayball, and Jonathan Edwards were all absent but their team-mates stepped up to produce some excellent performances.

The club's sole winner on the track was Dave Leadbitter in the B string 100m, but John Edwards picked up a win in the field in the A string hammer. Wayne DuBose also added a victory in the B string discus.

The team finished third with 65 points and eighth overall in the league. Club coach DuBose paid tribute to the team behind the scenes who helped Hunts AC host the event.
