CROYDON Harriers' junior team consolidated their position in the UK Youth Development League, thanks to a fourth-place finish at Stevenage.

The juniors were just edged outside of the top three in the six-club Southern Premier Two fixture.

Omar Reid had a successful afternoon, picking up three victories in throws, winning the U20 men's discus, 45.51metre, hammer, 39.20m, and shot put, 10.82m. Giacomo Spagnoli provided solid support in the B events of the hammer, 22.73m, and shot, 8.99m, to ensure event maximums.

There were also wins for English Schools hopefuls Damien Powell in the U20 men's 200m, 22.5secs, and Patrick Lucas in the U20 men's 800m, 1.59.1.

Emma Fossett grabbed one of three women's victories of the day, winning the U17 women's javelin in 37.61m. Saskia Navratnum, U20 women's discus, 34.46m, and Anieshka Mido, U20 women's hammer, 36.56m, were also victorious.
