Neil McLellan won a creditable bronze medal at this year's British Championships and Olympic trials at Birmingham on Saturday.

The Stevenage and North Herts AC javelin thrower peppered the 70m line throughout the competition.

His best of 70.38m in the second round was good enough to hold off the rest of the field, and give him third place.

Moving across the country to Wrexham, North Wales, under-20 man and clubmate Josh Morris competed for the first time in the Welsh Championships, collecting the silver medal for second in the 800m race (2:04.26)
