Aldershot, Farnham & District Athletic Club's ladies won their Southern League Division One fixture at the Military Stadium after a close battle with Exeter.

Charlotte Browning had a much clearer victory in the U/15 800 metres. The South of England champion defeated Crawley's Danielle Christmas, bronze medallist at last month's championships, by nearly six seconds with a time of 2mins 16.2secs.

In the same age-group on Saturday, AFD's Cecilia Savundra scored an easy win of her own over 200 which she ran in 27.4secs

For the club's seniors, Gemma Holt took both the long and triple jumps (5m41 and 10m81), while Noelle Bradshaw triumphed with 41m52 in the javelin.

Meanwhile, at Hastings, AFD lost their 100 per cent record in Division Two of the men's league, but maintained their unbeaten run by tieing with the host club after Paul Laslett had overtaken their man on the anchor leg of the final event, the 4 x 400, for victory in 3mins 27.7.

Laslett, silver medallist in the previous weekend's South of England senior championships at 800 metres, clocked 22.9 seconds to win the second string of the 200 on Saturday.

AFD scored maximum points in the 5,000 with David Udal (15mins 45.3) and Graham Russ (16mins 01.6), as well as the steeplechase (Gavin Smith, 9mins 47.9, and Richard Batchelor, 10mins 10.5).
