Deeping hurdler Julz Adeniran was in action in Portugal at the weekend when competing in the European Clubs Championships.

Representing top London outfit Shaftesbury Barnet, he finished fourth in the 110m hurdles in 14.53.

Last week he finished runner-up at the Loughborough International in 14.04, a time that ranks him ninth in the UK this season.

n Spalding athlete Emily Moss is another local international ace who has started the season well.

Just a week after winning an 800m race in Germany, she finished third in the Varsity match between Cambridge and Oxford.

Representing Oxford University, the 24-year-old clocked 67.55 to finish third in the B-string 400m hurdles.

It was a rare outing over the hurdles as for the last two years she has concentrated on running middle-distances and the steeplechase.

Moss had won in Laufabend, Germany, six days earlier in 2.10.80, her best 800m time for two years.

n Nene Valley Harrier Scott Waumsley won the Cambridgeshire Under 15 boys high jump title at Peterborough by 21cm with a personal best of 1.61m.

He was also fourth in the 80m hurdles in 13.99 while fellow Deeping athlete Jasmine Oldfield took bronze in the Under 17 women’s 300m in 48.29.

Ebony Tolo of Bourne won her heats of the Under 13 girls 100m and 200m before finishing fourth and fifth in the finals in 14.59 and 31.46 respectively.

Her time of 30.33 in the 200m heats was an electronic personal best although she has run 29.7 hand-timed.
