North Shields Pair in Top Form to Take Alnwick Win; Cook and Dann Ease to Victory in Latest North East Harrier League Event


Byline: Bill McGuirk

NORTH Shields Poly duo Graeme Cook and Stephanie Dann were unstoppable in the penultimate fixture of Start Fitness North East Harrier League at Alnwick Pastures.

Under the backdrop of Alnwick Castle, both Cook and Dann took full advantage of their generous handicap and near perfect conditions to cross the line well clear of their rivals.
