JOSH Guy turned in Mid Cheshire's top performance at the County Schools Athletics Championships at Macclesfield on Saturday.

The 14-year-old Weaverham High School pupil broke the competition junior javelin record with a massive 45.13m throw, nearly 9m better than second-placed Kerion Berrington, also in the Mid Cheshire team.

Guy, who plays hockey for Cheshire, will almost certainly be picked for Cheshire at the Mason Trophy inter-counties event at the weekend.

The big prize for all athletes is a Cheshire vest for the English Schools finals next month and Hartford High brother and sister James and Kathy Stringer are both likely contestants.

Kathy made sure of an invite by winning the inters 800m in an English Schools standard time of 2mins 17.5secs, while James set a competition re-cord of 49.90 for the juniors 400m in winning the event by nearly three seconds.

They are both members of Vale Royal AC.

Below are all the performances from Mid Cheshire athletes to reach their respective finals.
