Christmas Extra!




Above is a photo received from Steve Cain of the winning team in the Millennium Way Relay with the trophy. Obviously with Lee’s collapse at the end of his run and visit to hospital afterwards, this is the first opportunity to get a team photo with the trophy (actually, it looks like the photo is taken at Marown Football pitch, just yards from where Lee keeled over!).  Left to right – Andy Quayle, Nick Cain, Steve Cain, Lee Cain. You may also not have realised that the team originally included Chris Cain, but he was replaced by Andy Quayle when Peel reached the Railway Cup semi final and had a chance of playing in the Boxing Day final – which of course they went on to win! (thanks to Dave Griffiths for the photo and caption)


Members of Di Shimell’s training group went carol singing around Onchan before Christmas and raised £100 towards the Manx Harriers Young Athletes fund. The children presented the money to their surprised and delighted coach at a training session earlier this month.
