Berwick athlete Nathan Cox enjoyed double success when competing for the Morpeth Harriers senior men’s team in a Northern League match at Whitley Bay.

In windy conditions, Cox comfortably won his 800m race in a time of 2.01 minutes.

He then went on to compete in his first 400m race, which he won in a respectable time of 53.7 seconds.

This follows his successful meeting in the Northern Athletics Inter County Championships in Derby the previous weekend, where Cox represented the North East and was second in the U17s 1500m in a new personal best time of 4.07mins.
