Openshaw Back on the Right Road


Byline: By Bill McGuirk

Michael Openshaw made it a hat-trick of wins in the Patterson Ford Tynedale 10km Road Race at Ovingham last night, (writes Bill McGuirk).

Robertson hung on gamely for a fine second place with Potts taking third ( the same as last year ( and Gateshead's Michael Thompson fourth, while North Shields Poly's Tommy Brannon improved dramatically for fifth spot.
