DARWEN’S Ben Fish maintained his fine winning streak by dominating the field at last week’s Warrington 10k.

The 30-year-old Blackburn Harrier was unstoppable as he came first in the Cheshire event in 31 minutes and 58 seconds.

It is his third victory this month, having earlier won the Abersoch 10k and Freckleton Half Marathon.

Hyndburn AC were the big winners at last weekend’s Mid Lancs Track and Field meeting at Wilson Playing Fields.

On home territory, the club picked up most male points in Division One with 157, and also in the Division One female category (192), while their boys and girls were also overal winners.

Newcomer of the day went to Blackburn Harrier sprinter Archie Braysford who, just weeks after joining the club, clocked the fastest times in the U15 100m and 200m.

Clayton duo Ian Livesey and Andrew Stubbs had to settle for sixth and seventh respectively at the Trawden 7 race near Colne.

Livesey’s namesake – Shaun Livesey of Accrington Road Runners – was the leading East Lancastrian at the Sotos 10k in Fleetwood as he finished sixth overall.

Rossendale Harrier duo Thornton Taylor and Scott Hitchen finished sixth and eighth at the 2012 Trail Wales Marathon.
